    Expiring date after upgrading to Windows 10


    So today I decided to do the free upgrade to Windows 10. But before that I was running on a Windows 10 Insider Preview (clean installation). So everything went normal, it shows that my Windows is activated but when I type in the command menu "slmgr /xpr" it shows me that my Windows will expire on 12/31/2016

    Any suggestion how to fix this?

    My Insider Preview shows an expiration date in October. I'd say you are still on the Insider Preview. Didn't know the IP version can be changed to the Free Upgrade version, have always done the Free Upgrade from Win8.1 and Win7 w/SP1.

    But I'm not running the Insider Preview, right now I'm on Windows 10 Pro, I upgraded it several hours ago

    As far as I have seen only the Pro version was offered as the Technical Preview/Insider Preview

    Kindly look in a different place for the version, Hold down the Windows key and press R, type in winver and press Enter, should get a panel similar to mine:

    That is the RTM/Released Free Upgrade and I see no expiration date on it. But again, I've not seen the Upgrade successfully install over the Insider Preview without first going back to Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1. I've done more than 30 of the Free Upgrade installs since last July.

    I was considering first to install the 7 or 8.1 but today I readed somewhere that it can be done also through an Insider Preview but you'll need the serial number of your previous version. Although, I didn't use any key, the installation went normal...strange

    I am on the Insider Preview build 14372 and my System About shows no expiration date. My two laptops both have Windows 10 Pro 1511 and show no expiration date. I upgraded both with November 2015 release from Windows 8.1.

    Newer computers using UEFI BIOS store the CD key from the manufacture, which is read by the Windows 10 upgrade and automatically activates your copy.

    The product key is wrong for an upgraded version of Windows 10 Pro. The product key should be VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

    All you see in the picture is legit, I don't know what is wrong...
