Windows 10: Obtaining a new license - some questions Solved

    The good news is :
    Application license successfully installed.
    Package: Microsoft.Windows.48.X19-98841_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    User Id (if available): NULL
    License Id: e9f3e7e0-f34d-603a-41ae-d2d3c34f5a20
    Associate Id: e9f3e7e0-f34d-603a-41ae-d2d3c34f5a20
    Digital License acquired: Thursday, May 31, 2018

    The bad news however:
    ServerProps: 0xc004f200

    Meaning the server is not picking up the DL.

    The Product ID is generated from the Product Key and are interlinked - i.e. each combo is unique apart from the last 5 chararacters which may vary with Retail keys - it will always show -AAOEM for OEM keys however. One can't use the PID directly.

    Anyway... nothing much we can do if the server rejects the DL, we have no control over that.

    It's frustrating not being able to see what's on the server as compared with the local installation - ie. where the server sees a mismatch. I'll PM you one of my Win 7 Pro retail keys I use for testing and see if that kick starts the DL. (Win 7 keys are not retained so it should not be a problem - we just need to get past the generic key which causes the "Acquisition of End User License failed. 0xC004C003" = blocked in your report. I assume there is a conflict trying to activate with it as opposed to using it to retrieve the DL)

    Thanks. I got your PM. It will be a few hours before I get a chance to try the key.

    I was actually thinking about using a Win7 key but all I have is the old Win7 Home product key and the upgrade key to Pro. I didn't (don't) know if that upgrade key will work.

    If this doesn't work I'll just bite the bullet and buy a new license from Microsoft.

    Update:
    I couldn't wait. I tried changing my product key to the Win7 upgrade key and it worked! I now have an activated Win 10 running on my new motherboard. I wonder if the failing product key was associated with my original Win7 Home. If so, I may not be the only one with this problem.

    Thank you for your help.

    P.S. I've deleted the PM and its associated email. I no longer have your product key.

    You're welcome... we have had problems with upgrade keys in Win 8 days due to it's limited activation count... Full retail keys perform much better. At least you have a DL now.. and no need for a key on re-installation.

    I'm yet to be convinced the licence transfer mechanism has matured.
