    Intro & Activation Issue


    Well Hello people!

    You must be the same guys as from win7 forums and win8 forums..

    I used the sevenforums a lot back in the day under the username "win7" and discussed leaked RU builds etc..

    Anyway my issue here and I know I should look but very busy and frustrated;

    Activation of my Enterprise build keeps going off. I had it activated but I have so many keys written down now I can't remember which one to use. I was on a legit copy of Pro, possibly my mistake is a fresh install, but it was needed.

    Any help is appreciated. I still have another machine with 10 pro on from the upgrade.

    This is my laptop I speak of now.

    TiA :)

    If your organization uses Windows 10 Enterprise with volume licensing keys, you need to ask their IT support to help you in this matter. If you have access to Windows 10 Enterprise retail keys as part of the MSDN / Visual Studio / Microsoft Partner subscription, and those keys are not working, contact Microsoft support to get a replacement product key:




    If your Windows 10 Enterprise is not valid and is activated with any kind of hack, we will in no circumstances help you in any activation issues. The Ten Forums is strictly against any kind of piracy, as are the sister sites Vista Forums, Seven Forums and Eight Forums.

    From Forum Rules:

    4) No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).

    Hi,

    I thought it was okay to test Enterprise if having a legit copy of PRO?

    I have not used any hacks but now have a machine that is not activated. I have no idea which key to use now?

    I'm an insider and have been testing and giving feedback for ages... since win 7.

    The other day, it just activated when logged in via my live account.

    Should I be using a different copy? Pro? Confused..

    I'm extremely busy and this is causing me a major headache. I'm doing three jobs and getting very frustrated here...

    Fell free to check my email.. I'm also using a Windows phone with 10 on..

    Regards,
    Chris

    If you do not have an MSDN, Visual Studio or Microsoft Partner subscription, and if your organisation is not using Windows 10 Enterprise through volume licensing, your only way to test Enterprise legally is to download Windows 10 Enterprise free 90 day trial at Windows 10 Enterprise | TechNet Evaluation Center.

    Notice that the test version is Windows 1 Enterprise TH2 version 1511 build 10586, and it can't be upgraded or activated nor can you get Insider builds for it.

    Okay,

    It seems I have downloaded/installed the wrong file then?

    But it was activated and working a couple of days back.

    I'm struggling to work out what key os for what machine right now due to stress and work load.

    I don't know what to do, just want to be able to work without interruptions again.

    Extremely frustrated, tried a calling customer support, only to have the call ended on the second person.

    I don't have time for this right now, it's affecting my work and making me extremely stressed out.

    I don't feel I should have to lose a genuine copy of windows for helping out..

    ..if I have to install Linux or similar for peace I will.

    Please just link me to the version I should be using with my insider account or PM me. I have wasted days trying to work this out and not in the mood for it any longer. Extremely frustrated.

    I had a genuine copy of pro on here and need a fresh install.

    I feel I'm just being messed around.

    Regards,
    Chris.

    Okay,

    Thank you, I will do this now. Sorry if I was short in anyway, I'm just extremely busy and frustrated.
