Microsoft server outage deactivates Windows licenses - Software

In this case, the user has no option but to ignore the message and wait for the fix. If you have suddenly found your install of Windows 10 to no longer be activated, you are not alone. But don't panic, your license is still good.

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

Hours later, confirmation from Microsoft rolled in and impacted users were told that the license problem is the result of a server issue.

The online retail giant announced today that it's releasing an Alexa app for all Windows 10 PCs. Users were incorrectly informed by the OS that their legal copy of Windows 10 Pro was unauthorized or unactivated.

One of those affected reported that a Microsoft support agent said the firm was aware of the problem affecting users in Japan, Korea, America and other countries.

If you are facing the issue, you can resolve it using the Activation troubleshooter, located in the Windows settings, under the Update and Security. Error code: 0xC004C003 If you're having problems with activation, select Troubleshoot to try to fix the problem. And for some users, that's all it takes to get the license squared away.

I had also heard from from one user who said he received erroneous activation messages about his Windows Server 2016 licenses, as well as from users who said they were unable to buy an upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro today.

You have a Windows 10 Home license but you are running Windows 10 Pro.

And you're not alone in this annoyance.

Following the creation of a number of support threads and social media comments, Microsoft has confirmed the flaw and addressed - though without explanation, beyond a separate claim of a 'temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server' - its cause.
