You can run, but can you hide?

(The following bug is apparently only affecting the Pro version, so you might this time around)


My personal copy of Windows 10 Pro decided that it is no longer valid as the key stored on the Microsoft servers is only good for Windows 10 Home. I even ran the Windows troubleshooter where it listed all of the valid Windows 10 Professional licenses stored on my Microsoft account, but still told me that I only own a Windows Home license. It then pointed me to the Windows Store to purchase a new license after revoking my old license by placing the Windows Activation watermark on my desktop. After researching this annoying message the entire night, I discovered lots of other valid Windows license owners with the same issue. It seems that Microsoft knows about the issue and a fix is coming. At least my data didn't disappear into thin air. That would suck if it did it twice.
