    Not following you. Where did you purchase this software.

    Only buy Windows 10 from a reputable dealer like Wal Mart, Newegg or Amazon. If you buy it anywhere else, you could get ripped off.

    Post #4 gives little new information over post #1.

    Who did you buy Win 10 from? Is the Win 10 installation activated on your PC? Who is supposed to be "revoking" the license?

    As far as I know, in the past, once a copy of Windows was activated, it stayed that way. The license key might be blocked by Microsoft, but you might not discover that until you tried to re-install Windows using that key. (There was something called the "Windows Genuine Advantage" program that checked for legit copies of Windows, but I've heard nothing about that for a long time.)

    There are people who are selling MSDN keys for real cheap out there on the internet. They are technically speaking not genuine keys, and the owner can revoke them if I remember correctly. Not only the owner, but also Windows, if they discover that the guy selling the keys has been generating a bunch of them. Where did you buy the keys and how much did you pay for them?
