Microsoft Deactivates Copies of Windows 10 Due to Server Problem

Windows 10 Pro goes Home as Microsoft fires up downgrade server

According to those able to get hold of Microsoft's call centres, the advice is to wait a while and the problem should fix itself, indicating something has gone awry on the licensing servers, and engineers are now scrambling to fix it.

Thankfully, Microsoft is aware of the problem and said that their engineers are on it. Microsoft support chat seems to have told a customer that, "Customer will be notified when the issue is resolved". Meanwhile, we'd recommend following the steps in this link: https://t.co/zbJd4ohrdo to help you troubleshoot Windows 10 activation errors.

To the relief of the bruised Insider team (but no one else), it soon became apparent that the issue is not just isolated to those fearless souls trying out preview code, but over many versions of Windows 10. The affected users need not to do anything as it is a known issue. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.

Microsoft has just released an Emerging issue announcement about current activation issue related to Pro edition recently. And for some users, that's all it takes to get the license squared away.

The delay of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update has apparently resulted in some unexpected frustrations for certain OEMs according to a report by Petri's Brad Sams who has spoken to several company employees off the record. The troubleshooting tool goes on to say that users have to install Windows 10 Home in order to use the digital license for it. Others at the company have speculated that this might be a timezone issue, hopefully, Microsoft posts a triage of the outage once it is resolved. We will update this article once we get an official word form Microsoft about the "server issue" that is causing this problem.
