Windows 10 License Will Expire Soon

Recommended Posts

Abecedario    6

This evening my notebook greeted me with this message, that popups about every two minutes.

The notebook was regularly upgraded from a Win8.1 license, and has never had a problem.

 

I've googled a solution but nothing works.

 

With slmgr.vbs /dli it says just that the license will expire in 29 days.

With wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey I get the actual code, but when I try to reenter it in settings/activation it refuse because "the product key doesn't works".

 

What must I do? :|

Call Microsoft.  As long as you have a valid, legal, key....they will help you.

Sounds like you were on a KMS activation.

yeah I'd just call MS and explain the situation. 9 times out of 10 they'll flip a reactivation switch on their end and you'll be golden again for something like this
