    Did you Upgrade first and then clean install?
    I just upgraded,.. right now I don't need to perform a clean install. The upgrade procedure with Win10 works just fine.

    I've been reading the Forum. I didn't Upgrade first. I just clean Installed and it's Activated. No one else seems to have had this behaviour.

    Reporting back.. total success.. now activated!
    Did the upgrade, then shutdown, disconnected my other drives to be on the safe side, then booted off USB and clean install. Fully activated. Then I wiped my SSD and did it again. No problems.

    I was afraid one app would not work. The one that monitors my AIO pump and fans. But it's fine.
