In brief: Microsoft has suffered through a steady stream of bugs in recent memory and the latest appears to be primarily targeting Windows 10 Pro users that upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 8.1 Pro via the free upgrade offer a few years back.

Microsoft would dearly like the last remaining Windows 10 Mobile users to disappear, and they are doing everything they can to encourage them to move to a different mobile platform. The new codec brings more video options for video steaming in Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 (via MSPoweruser). And Microsoft fixed the problem by the end of the day. For customers that have deployed Pro in their work environments, this is creating headaches with unnecessary support tickets from users who suddenly think they may now be using a pirated version of the software.

Microsoft hasn't said exactly why the activation server glitch occurred, and probably won't at this point.

The hosts warmed up for the Test with a 12-11 win over South Africa , while New Zealand put 69 points on Japan. Hansen reckons it has become an even bigger game due to their failure to win the series.

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. 'We are aware of reports that some customers' Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise machines are not recognising their licenses as activated.,' explained a Microsoft support staffer of the issue.

It's not clear if the activation issue is somehow related to the October 2018 Update, only that the timing roughly coincides with its release and rollback.

Windows 10 has a number of functions that make it appealing to users, such as its high-degree of customisability.

If you are facing the issue, you can resolve it using the Activation troubleshooter, located in the Windows settings, under the Update and Security.
