    Hi there

    Mine also "Permanently Activated" -- seems we are in luck as I'm sure 6 X Windows 10 pro license would not give me much change out of 700 USD !!!.

    Can't believe in the generosity of Ms -- there MUST be a catch somewhere -- I don't regard getting new updates to insider builds as a problem - especially if I can run a FREE W10 build.

    Cheers

    Hey jimbo, what is the text to enter in the command prompt to check if you are "permanently activated" ? I can't read it on my screen. Thanks, jgcjr

    From the command prompt:
    slmgr/xpr

    And winver gives you information.

    When posting a Home key which part do I post, that last 5 or the first 5? I wanted to see if the home key is duplicated on 10240 as well. I am going to do a test as well. I am going to try a clean install and see if it activates without a Microsoft account.

    In this case Permanently Activated isn't really permanently activated. Not the way some of you are thinking. I get the same thing if I run that command on my Windows 8.1 PC. I take it to mean your not running a trial version or VL KMS activation etc. If Microsoft blacklists that key you'll fail activation. As far as I know Windows tries to verify activation status every time you boot up. I get that same message on build 10240, and I have not opted out of the insiders program. I originally did an upgrade from Windows 7.

    Will we get the upgrade on the 29th and if so will this be a non issue?

    Here is the activation I have.. Permanent .. I believe you get this if you're either in or out of the insider program.

    I ment the possible issue with build 10240 expiration date.
    So we will get the upgrade from build 10240 to the final on/about the 29th.. Am I thinking correctly about this?

    I think so yes, I haven't seen anything to say otherwise? If nothing happens after the 29th, just opt out and see what happens. See this post, Windows 10 Build 10240 for PC is now available

    @ Slartybart - So that's where I read it! Nowhere else on the internet from official MS sources though?
    Couldn't find a MS reference, but Shawn is trustworthy - I'm sure he knows where MS stashed the information (a blog, a Developer subscription, an RSS feed, MS engineer on MS forums....)
