Windows 10: ShowKeyPlus
the preview activation server has been shut down...
The reason for this is they are testing the roll out
It's due to a clean install... the free upgrade must be done on an existing genuine Win7/8 installation first - Your Device ID then gets registered with a store licence and subsequent installations (with the generic key as per your illustration) will be automatically activated.
Use WDT to confirm ... clicking the validation code will show it's a store licence.

right now guess what ?
have reinstalled win8.1 + all updates
now there's not a win10 Pro ISO 10240 out there to d/l
as they've all reached their limit .. hahaha
I can't get one ..
if i do find one I'll make a disc and reboot
and ONLY install if setup says something like
"we have detected you have an existing operating system 8.1
would you like to upgrade "
YES ... next ..
I think the servers for 10240 activation have been shutdown by MS. You might try upgrading to 10162/66 and activating, then taking 10240 through Windows Update - that's the only way MS want you to take it, because they are testing the delivery method now. And be sure to be logged in with your MSA.
At this point I'm a prolly wait till 29th
looking too dodgy , if i got the 10166
would i really get the latest via update
as , they've shut down those activation servers
i missed the boat
hey hey on the main computer
I'm sitting here with win 10 enterprise genuine activation
which ain't bad at all
slightly off center
Are you aware Enterprise is excluded from the free upgrade? If you are running the Enterprise Preview it will eventually time out and activation will fail.
Oooh , then I'll avail of the pro or build when it comes 29th

What version of Windows 7 or 8.1 are you upgrading from? That will determine what version of 10 you get.
This utility has proven useful. Nirsoft's Produkey was infected with a PUP according to MBM so thanks for this.
Great tool Craig, I used it on my desktop and saved it to OneDrive so as to have access from my other PC when I finally clean install, if something goes left, and I need them. I definitely need to do it on my Laptop that was Win7 before too.
