    Strange but the last two builds have removed CCleaner when I installed them.
    Mine remain still.....in fact a reminder that a new update is available.

    That's pretty nice. I'm not seeing that option though, for some reason.
    It certainly works for me.....with an M$ account...

    Every new build since the beginning has removed CCleaner on my rig, also Speccy (also from Piriform).

    Anyone else seeing a policy change at the beginning of the blog post?



    Combine those two highlighted sentences and you get a new policy: it's OK to replace motherboard, Windows remains activated and digital entitlement will be carried over to new hardware. Not just replace motherboard with an identical one as until now.

    Am I reading it wrong?
    It is ambiguous in my mind.

    MS always said digital licences could be transferred to new mobo if like for like, but you had to get MS to do it if it failed to activate.

    Also, an unresolved issue was if you could transfer windows 10 to a new mobo if you you originally upgraded from a retail 7/8 oem in free period, after free period ends (EULA certanly permits it).

    According to EULA, you cannot transfer licence to a new mobo if you upgraded from an oem licence. Question is whether the new method can differentiate between retail or oem?

    Perhaps MS have simply decided the number of people who replace a mobo is so small in reality, it is not worth the hassle checking original licence?

    After all it is their vowed intent to get as many people using Windows 10, and being strict about oem licences is counter productive to that intent.

    I will try an see if I can activate a vm this way.

    If you activate your vm (if it does work), is it possible that your physical machine will get deactivated due to digital license transfer?

    Well I have fallen at first hurdle as something really odd is happening. I have installed this on my PC and licence is activated. I clean installed 10586 using an MSA. This activated fine with a digital licence (have 8.1 oem in bios), and then upgraded to latest insider build 14371.

    However, no mention of a digital licence (better term), or any option in menu to "add an account".

    Now I am confused! Any ideas?

    Re - vm question, I assume I could simply transfer back again, but I cannot get that far.

    I think you are OK, no issues.

    MS has clearly removed / stopped using the words digital entitlement or as in last three builds digital activation.

    All my physical and virtual activated machines told until 14352 that Windows was activated with digital entitlement, then all three 1436X builds that it was activated through digital activation, now all 14371 machines put it simple and tell Windows is activated:

    Ah that is good to know. But why then do I not see the screen (see text in bold rectangle) as below?

    EDIT: Just rebooted a couple of times and now the add option is available.

    EDIT 2: So adding an account just changed local account to a MS account, and still no message. So I cannot tell if my account is linked or not

    Another thought occurred to me re. the new activation. As redstone presumably comes out when free period is finished, is it clever enough to handle earlier digital licences as you will not be able add it during free period?

    When I boot into Build 14371, I get the "How do you Want to Open This" question. I click on the Snippet icon and the notification disappears.

    Not a big problem, but I know it shouldn't happen, so it's a bother to me. Especially since I can't get a snippet of it.
