    I upgraded from home to pro in June by purchasing from MS Store. Today the above message appeared on my screen. I don't recall activating it but as far as I remember, I never saw a code to enter or a place to enter it. Apparently the present code is left over from home.

    The easy - but expensive - fix would be to go buy another copy, this time on usb, which would come with a code.

    Is there a way to straighten this out with MS? Or some way to establish the code? I have a Macrium recovery usb but suspect that it would not include the code.

    Do nothing.
    It is a MS Server problem and will be fixed in a day or so.

    Also, as @Brink observed in another thread slmgr /ato in an administrative PS or cmd.exe window will do the trick, too.

    Please edit post to hide keys. Only ever show a partial sequence (eg last five digits)

    One of my computers has the Activation watermark.
    When I try and activate it says, we cannot connect to activation servers right now.

    So, they are still having problems.
