    Activated Activation error


    What do you guys make of this? It's kinda driving me nuts.
    In one place it says windows is activated,
    Yet it has an activation error code over to the right of image.

    That's standard- it's just meant to be a helpful set of links for common questions.
    I see the same.

    Don't expect everything from MS to be 100% ergonomically designed and clear.

    That code under 'Have a question?' is not telling you that you have an activation error, it's a link that opens your browser at a help page, just like the 'learn more' link below 'Activation, Windows is activated...'..

    That's odd, I see the same on one machine, but not on another. Both are running 1809 Pro.

    I think you only see the extra help if you initially had an activation problem. The extra help seems to persist even after a subsequent successful activation. At least, that's the only difference between these two machines. The one with the 'extras' was a clean install that at first said 'Windows couldn't be activated', the one without was activated from the first moment it was installed.

    Don't expect everything from MS to be 100% ergonomically designed and clear.

    Or to tidy up after itself once an issue is resolved.

    I don't know if that would bring it on, I've never had an activation problem with this machine.

    Uhmm... Yup, I so need to learn about keys and activation.. LOL

    The 'Give feeback' thing was an annoyance which is gone now.. (that should only be in Insider builds IMHO)

    But overall I'm happy with the current release (not sure if my tweaks are responsible, like 3rd party firewall etc)

    Yeah mine looked like that before on an offline account. It obviously changes with an MS account.
