    Understand there is a registry hack that will allow a person to upgrade to Win Pro to Win 10 LTSB and allow you to take all your apps and data with you untouched. Need the hack and instructions on usage. Will be using en_windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64_dvd_9059483 iso.
    thanks in advance for any help and\or tips

    I didn't need a hack. I used PowerISO to extract the files to a different drive. Ran 'setup' from there and the option to keep all my files and settings was available. I don't know everything, so I imagine there is a hack. Just wasn't the route I took. Good luck!

    That's not a howto go from enterprise 2016 LTSB to pro but just from normal enterprise to pro, by just changing the productkey.

    Racking brains to remember, posted it ages ago and it worked, and if I remember correctly all modern apps junk was preserved. The post was lost when forum went pear shaped!

    Think this is it...

    Code:
    In Place Upgrade To LTSB 2016
    =============================
    Change EditionID and ProductName at registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    EditionID = EnterpriseS
    ProductName = Windows 10 Enterprise S
    
    Then just run setup.exe from LTSB ISO (extracted to a temp folder somewhere).
    Edit: Pretty sure a few others did it okay too.

    Ya, that's the logic behind this app. The original idea is applicable for all NT 6.x family of operating systems.

    In my linked post you will see I posted that I did it from W10 Pro to LTSB with no probs. In this thread I've posted that I recall others doing it with no problems too, confirmed in post by endbase. I've no idea about "from W10 Home" - never tried.

    Should my registry look like this ????https://forums.mydigitallife.net/asset.php?fid=37124&uid=566313&d=1483374661getting fail message This upgrade path is not supported. Please close Setup and re-launch from the root of the media or go back and pick a different installation choice. Tried setup from both root and sources folder from within Win 10 pro. Can;t figure out the problem

    Probably the reason your image did not show up is Forum Rules
    3.1 The MDL forums have some limitations for new members: One has to be registered to be able to view images / links at all forums. 5 minimum post count to be able to see the chat box and to use the Private Message system to contact members. And a 20 minimum post count to be able to post links and images regularly.

    The link in the post you're refering at is not available. The quote from you, endbase used, is available.

    From Home > Pro is just simple entering the Pro key (the gVLK for use with KMS or the generic HWID Pro key, ending on 3V66T for use with HWID), it will upgrade to pro. And it seems logical that the regedit to enterprises would work, if it works on normal Pro installs.
