    Hi all,

    I have a Windows 10 Home retail, wondering if there is any possibility to upgrade to Pro edition preferably VL channel without losing any data ?

    Maybe with the correct Key.

    Purchasing is not an option.

    Maybe it has to do with you having an online or linked account, never used that.

    With offline local windows account it simply works.

    You could try this with KMS_VL_ALL:
    - run AutoRenewal-Setup.cmd to install the emulator (remember to exclude the file noted)
    - run Activate.cmd (this is needed to set KMS parameters, it should skip your activated Home)
    - now try to upgrade with the gVLK posted earlier

    if this doesn't work, run AutoRenewal-Setup.cmd again to remove the emulator
