Did your Windows 10 just deactivate? Microsoft confirms Windows 10 Activation issue

Windows 10 Pro goes Home as Microsoft fires up downgrade server

Did it delete your files? No? If you have suddenly found your install of Windows 10 to no longer be activated, you are not alone. Maybe it broke Windows file associations for you, so you can't open files in the default programs you choose.

A bug-free Windows 10 October Update still seems to be far away, and Windows users have already come up with another issue.

Some of the affected users took the appropriate step of contacting Microsoft support for help, but that just resulted in support staff confirming the message was correct and a purchase was required. The bad news is it doesn't seem to be in a huge hurry to solve the problem. The October 2018 Update is still MIA, and there's no word yet on when it will arrive or if it will fix the numerous problems users have reported.

To reactivate their installations and to get rid of the un-activated copy of Windows watermark, users may need to re-run Windows Activation once the licensing server problem has been sorted out. A Windows Insider spoke with a support agent at Microsoft and posted the response to Microsoft Answers. Yes, you read that right. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.I am very sorry to inform you that there is a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server at the moment and some customers might experience this issue where Windows is displayed as not activated. Unfortunately, some users report that the activation troubleshooter tells the user they're running Windows 10 Home instead of Windows 10 Pro.

The cause for this is being attributed to the failure of Microsoft's Activation Servers to validate the Windows 10 licenses. Affected customers will see resolution over the next 24 hours as the solution is applied automatically.
