    Account device limit reached


    Not sure where to put this but I have just received an email from ms saying I have reached the device limit for my ms account after installing win 10. On the list is a vm which I have removed and a 64 bit version of win 8.1 which is on another account. What is this all about says I am limited in the store.

    Just got another email saying the same thing but to my main account where there is only one machine listed which is an insider version of win 10 , what the heck is going on?

    Log into OneDrive and check the list of PC's you have installed W10 on since becoming an insider, then just delete a few, (or all)

    The link given in the email was accounts.microsoft.com/devices/store and its still there. I added one account for remote desktop use for windows insider but its still showing, it shouldnt be there. MS tech told me to ignore the email.

    I think you got good advice, ignore the e-mail. I deleted a bunch of laptops and virtual machines. I guess Mother does not like it when you just delete the virtual machines or reformat your laptop SSD.
