Windows 10: Windows license will expire soon
Windows license will expire soon
So I've had windows installed on my computer around half a month already and now, everytime I boot up my computer, it says "Windows license will expire soon". But when I go to the Activation part in the Settings menu, this is what I see:
How did you activate it threw a company KMS server
Somehow you have a volume license of Windows 10 that has been activated through a KMS server. When this happens, your copy of Windows must "check in" with the KMS server it activated on every few months. You start receiving this message after a period of time with no access to the KMS server.
I don't know. I have the Windows 10 Professional Edition. I didn't install it through the free upgrade. I downloaded the image from the Microsoft website, put it in a pen and installed from root through that.
Post a screenshot of slmgr.vbs /dlv run from command prompt.
Sometimes Windows says activated when in fact it's in the grace period... having said that, I haven't heard of a Pro VL key being installed automatically (there was such an issue with Home on 10240 doing this, however)
PS: When you say installed through root, you mean running setup.exe from within th eold OS? In that case, how was that activated and from where did that install media originate?
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...
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...
