    The versions matched -- both Professional. Neither the responder nor her supervisor could explain why it happened, but the bottom line is that they fixed it. At one stage she asked if she could take control of my machine, which stunned me a bit, but there was no argument when I refused.

    Can I retrieve a windows 10 pro key from within a windows 7 OS? My win 10 decided to be corrupted, but the win 7 dual boot is still working.

    You can run showkey plus:
    Showkey - Windows 10 Forums

    Select the option to retrieve product key from backup. Navigate to the Windows 10 partition, Windows\System32\config folder. Load the SOFTWARE hive. Showkey will provide you with the generic product key above that all Windows 10 upgrades get from Windows 7 Pro/Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro.
