Windows 10: Your windows license will expire soon
Your windows license will expire soon
I keep getting the "your windows license will expire soon" popup in the Win 10 anniversary update. I disabled Windows License Manager and Windows Update in services.msc and did the slmmgr rearm thingy in CMD. Initially it kept popping up every minute or so. Now it only pops up twice in a row, when I log into Windows.
Any ideas on what to do? All I can find seems to be for the original Windows 10, not the anniversary update.
This usually happens when a key is a volume licence key and pc cannot contact the company server to remain active.
Run slmgr /dlv from an admin command prompt and post image (data is not confidential).
This confirms my suspicion. You have a volume licence key. These are not supposed to be sold to general public. Basically a scam.
I thought if you were in the Insider program you got W10 free.
Is this something I should be concerned about. It's a few months old laptop with all the latest preview updates.
so i upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 home, over a year ago. (full retail windows 7, NOT OEM installed)
a few months ago i upgraded my system, new motherboard, so decided to do a clean install of windows 10 - made the bootable USB tool...
