    Hello,

    Today I have installed in VMW12 Win10 ENT N using:
    SW_DVD5_WIN_ENT_N_10_1607_64BIT_English_MLF_X21-06998.ISO
    Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.0)

    Then I have checked OS version and I get this info:
    The Windows 10 Enterprise N operating system

    Then I have performed windows update
    after reboot I get
    Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.10)

    Then I have disabled network

    Then I have activated windows using Microsoft Toolkit 2.6 BETA 5
    When I have checked OS version I get this info:
    The Windows 10 Pro N operating system

    I do not have a problem with this but is this 'normal' ?

    Thanks in advance for any comment on this

    Kind regards

    1. I have uninstalled MTK and rebooted
    2. Then I have run MTK again
    3. When I have checked OS version I get this info:
    The Windows 10 Enterprise N operating system
    4. All o.k. now:)

    Maybe reading the MTK thread would give you some more info ;)

    You'd installed the Enterprise N Version and that's what is shown in the outcome: totally normal! If you run WU, that will works for Enterprise N, and nor something else too!

    Your ISO used for the install stated it very well: SW_DVD5_WIN_ENT_N_10_1607_64BIT_English_MLF_X21-06998.ISO, and all you'll get the normal way, is for Enterprise N! And just to mention: the N stands not for Network

    Pretty sure the issue OP is asking about is that it somehow becomes "Pro N", which is not "totally normal".

    There is a new licensing combination in RS1 for three editions: Pro - Pro Education - Enterprise
    all those 3 can be activated with the other one license/key
    same applies for N variant of editions

    apparently MTK installed Pro N key and activated it (probably because its SKU-ID comes first alphabetically)

    Hello abbodi1406,
    thanks a lot for your reply:)
    did not know about new licensing combination in RS1
    anyways as I have mentioned in my original post I do not have a problem that edition changed
    I was just curious about that

    I wish that meant a system activated with pro would also work with pro education / enterprise ;)
