Windows 10 Enterprise not activating

Copper Contributor

Hoping someone can help me figure out where I am going wrong with activating my Windows 10 Enterprise license.


I have licenses for Microsoft 365 E3 (GCC-High version) and Windows 10 Enterprise E5 (Also GCCHIGH).  I am running an Azure AD joined computer with Windows 10 Pro (version 2004).  We are AAD-only, not hybrid.


From everything I am reading (, since I am AAD joined and have the M365 E3 license and E5 upgrade license assigned to me, it should be activating automatically.  When I check my activation status, it only shows my Windows 10 Pro license - not even a failed activation for the Enterprise license.  


Thanks for any advice, let me know if more info would be helpful.

Did you find a solution for this? I too have this exact same problem. I have confirmed all the requirements are in place but there are no error messages in the Activation area and my Surface Pro 4 just stays on Pro with its existing OEM license.
Currently, Subscription Activation is only available on commercial tenants and is currently not available on US GCC, GCC High, or DoD tenants.
