    Team,
    Probably more informational as I don't require any assistance.

    I had a legit copy of Win 8 which I upgraded to Win 8.1.

    Because I am brave I made use of the free upgrade to Win 10 1709. So far, so good. Activated.

    I then upgraded from 1709 to 1809. Still activated. Then I started to get a message that my Windows needed activation.

    Huh?

    This went on for about a month and using my very good friend Google I found out that I can't use the VL copy to upgrade but had to use a commercial copy.

    It dropped dead on me. I have a legit key but I can't use it.

    Naughty M$!!!

    HTH

    Everyone has a legit key after activation problems, that is very strange. I never faced this. Perhaps the issue is between the keyboard and chair :laie:
