Yeah, there is a regular version that I believe is Pro, and an Enterprise version of the TP. I got mine off of MSDN. It seems to be only the Enterprise version that has this activation issue after you upgrade to the latest build. The key gets changed to one that fails activation. The 8.1 Enterprise ISO has a similar issue right from the get go. You don't get asked for a key and it uses a generic one that won't activate. I have to do the same change key thing to enter my personal MSDN key. It ignores the PID.txt file too, as I've tried that to save having to change the key. Adding a PID.txt file works for the normal retail Pro and Core ISO though? I've been down this road before so that's why I tried the change key option.
Something new that seems to have been added with 9860 update. In the PC settings in the charms bar:
With the slideshow turned ON, and when my computer wakes up now, I get a quick slide show of my wallpapers and the time even tho I do not require a wake up password. Just hitting the Ctrl key will make the desktop appear. This is new right? and one of Tom's ten things that Win 10 needed, heh.
Anyone having VM Player issues? I've been getting CD-ROM issues where it would make it disappear from my PC. I'm hoping I solved that one by replacing the CD-ROM with a new one. I also found a loose wire so it looks like the new one may not have been needed after all.
Anyway the other more annoying issue is I randomly get a memory notification telling me I don't have enough memory when the player tries to start Windows. I) I've got 32gig of system memory, 2) I've set the player to only use 4gig so I'm not sure what's going on. Anyway closing VM and re-opening it sometimes solves the issue, other times I have to wait a few minutes and try again. Weird.
So anyone else with VM issues?
No VM issues, make sure you have the latest player. Running on a 1 gig VM, bit slow but works fine, I only have 4 gig total on this machine on windows 8.1
