    Default Soooo.... My Free Upgrade to Windows 10 won't activate.

    Came from my OEM Activated Windows 7 straight to Windows 10.

    Now it's telling me this -
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Anyone else had it?

    I know. I upgraded for Free ages ago.
    The upgrade only last so long then? Once you've taken advantage of it, they charge you after?

    No, but it's probably the activation you needed to do rather than just installing it.

    It's my home PC.
    I asked Microsoft Answer Centre and got Microsoft to remote on and solve it.
    Looks like they just gave me a new Windows 10 Pro Key and all was well in the world again!

    If you or anyone else still needs an official version, then it is still available here:

    Would have been handy last night after changing HDD in revo (toolkit still worked, but may wipe and do this). Thanks @ivrytwr3.
