Windows 10: Microsoft Account - Link to Digital License on Windows 10 PC
Brink - The tutorial needs more information Anyone try out MANY DEs to ONE MSA?
I'm not sure what other information can be added until there's anything new from Microsoft.
I have done a lot of testing with VMs and it seems you can only link one DL to one MSA. This is an issue if you have a dual boot pc eg with one dl for home and one for pro. The linked DL is the last installation made.
I'm having the same issue.
But I also have a device named "PC" in the device list now. It's just PC. I guess it appeared after the Anniversary update.
Before the update, I could see my computer on the MSA device list, even though I've been using local account. But now it appears only if I login to W10 using my Microsoft account. If I switch to local account, it disappears. But the "PC" stays there whether I use MSA or local acc.
So what's that "PC"? Any ideas?
It's also not cool that MS forcing people to use MS account to login their PCs. Activated devices were always in the device list even if you use local account before that so called update.
Well I have shown in my testing, reverting to a local account does remove the link, and you have to remain on an MS account.
However, you can automatically login as guniu was asking by runnning netplwiz, unckeck box requring password, and entering password twice.
Do you have any idea what that "PC" in the device list can be?
I just find out this info , it may be of use :
"Once past those 36 hours you could log off the Microsoft account and return to my local account as always, and again with the local account will continue to indicate the system is activated with the digital license tied to Microsoft account."
It is in spanish , but it's worth a read.

Hmm, worth trying. I'll just make it 2 days and then going to switch back to local account. I'll let you guys know what happens.
Could be an old install, an install from another pc, a failed attempt, may not even be activated etc.
How does a person responsible for Managing several machines & their Win 10 DEs (Home/ Family or SOHO/ SMB) link these DEs to a Single MS account?
