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

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. But don't panic, your license is still good.

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. Meanwhile, we'd recommend following the steps in this link: https://t.co/zbJd4ohrdo to help you troubleshoot Windows 10 activation errors.

Microsoft has just released an Emerging issue announcement about current activation issue related to Pro edition recently.

Microsoft is aware of what it says is an "ongoing issue" and said that users who are affected by it don't need to do anything. The system is asking the users to install a Windows 10 Home version to close the troubleshooting. 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.

If you are facing the issue, you can resolve it using the Activation troubleshooter, located in the Windows settings, under the Update and Security. And for some users, that's all it takes to get the license squared away.

A number of Windows 10 Pro users have received warnings to downgrade to Windows 10 Home due to possible problems with Microsoft's activation servers.

And you're not alone in this annoyance.

There are 31 pages of comments (and counting) on the Microsoft Answers forum about today's issue.

We fixed an issue that caused Far Manager to have a significant pause during a long running command like "dir" (see Microsoft/console#279).
