Activation error after 6 months

Occasional Visitor

I upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 10 on Jan 2020. It was working till yesterday but after the regular update it started showing error in activation. When I enter my windows 7 key it is not accepting and I don't have my digital key for window 10. Kindly advice.

Hello @kkmb11,


After you upgraded to Windows 10, you were supposed to buy new Windows 10 license. This is because, free upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 is no longer available:


Hence the Windows 7 key won't be accepted now. You can buy genuine Windows 10 license from Microsoft Store to fix this problem:


Hope this helps!
