Microsoft Suggests Windows 10 Pro Activation Problems Will Clear in 24 Hours

Control Alexa from your Windows 10 PC

There's definitely a lot of overlap, but Microsoft doesn't have the smart home ecosystem that Alexa does, nor her ability to sling media (though The Verge notes that Alexa for Windows 10 now doesn't support Spotify or Pandora). Earlier that same year, Microsoft took eight days to come up with a rejiggered fix for a math bug a previous patch had inserted into Excel.

Microsoft Windows users on the version 10 Pro have been in for a rude surprise recently where they were greeted with a message saying that the key used is for Windows 10 Home and that they need to install it again.

That may mean that the Alexa Windows 10 app goes as unloved as Cortana. Others were told simply to wait awhile and see if the problem would fix itself.

While the issue was first reported on a Reddit thread, ZDnet reported that Microsoft was aware of this situation, and that it was tied to the company's activation server.

Any affected customer can continue to use Windows 10 Pro as usual, and the watermark will disappear within 24 hours as activation is automatically restored.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late November 2018. Windows 10: Microsoft to boost Linux app security with Windows Defender firewall Microsoft preps new Windows 10 security features to ensure system integrity during start-up and after it's running. That was also the case for the OneDrive sync client on Windows 10, but Microsoft has quietly added dark mode support to this app in recent Insider builds.

I got the exact same problem!

Since then, multiple reports of bugs in the Windows 10 October Update have emerged, including an issue handling.ZIP folders and a bug that caused Task Manager to report the incorrect CPU utilization. Here are some of the enterprise-centered features to expect in the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
