    Windows 10 Pro x64 1607

    Alphanumeric, are you using a direct upgrade from Version 1607 to 1703 or a clean install?

    I did a direct upgrade on 3 PCs and all of them do it, especially trying to uninstall NVIDIA software. My display drivers needed reinstalled due to an issue with GeForce Experience.

    On the other 2 machines, when I uninstall NVIDIA software, UAC says it's RunDll32.exe asking to run, but points to the program being uninstalled, so it ends up working.

    I've done both, upgrades and clean installs, and no issues uninstalling from Apps & features.

    I like that they did this.

However, the Macrium procedure to deactivate a license key on a PC is a procedure within the Reflect program, which can't be run. I have a support request into Macrium about this. I haven't run across any other problems, yet. My recording studio program (Sonar Platinum) runs without problems.

    This is the message I get when I try to run Reflect V6

    I just tried running Macrium Reflect and my license is OK. It would be nice if we could deactivate our license online instead of in the program.

    If its already been activated with a Digital Entitlement you don't need to enter any key at all. You just click the "I don't have one" install the correct version from the list and it will activate with the digital Entitlement.

    OK.....I still have a couple windows 7 Pro keys that have never been activated left from my TechNet days......was hoping I might be able to use one of them to activate a new install on a new build.........but from your answer it looks like that is not possible....

    cereberus posted above that its still doable, but for how long is the question. If you want to try it I'd do it sooner than latter. All my rigs have multiple Digital Entitlements so I have no easy way to test if 7 or 8 keys still activate.

    Thanks Alpha

    I seen that post also........figured it would work if I did the Win 7 install and then did the upgrade........not sure if I want to go through the hassle installing Win 7 on the new ASUS CrossHair VI X370 board which can be done but several hoops to jump through to get it done........

    Bree has already explained it. You also omitted part of my post while stating what I said...
    Personally I can't see why one wouldn't get the latest version of any software. I can see waiting a few weeks or so, but to totally ignore is just asking for issues down the line. That's the way I see it.

    Peace
