    Best Way For Determining Activation Status


    What is the best way for determining the activation status of a Win Ten 1909 installation? I know that winver is one way but is there a better way?

    Thanks, in advance, for guidance and/or pointers to an appropriate tutorial.

    Open the Command Prompt by typing cmd.exe into Start Menu, right-click on Cmd.exe, and open it as an administrator.

    Execute following command:

    Code:
    slmgr.vbs /dlv
