Can Windows 10 Pro product key be used to upgrade Windows 11 Home to Pro?

Microsoft announces that the update to the stable version of windows11 will be free and will not require an additional product key if you already have windows10 installed, but it will certainly not happen immediately on October 5, 2021 - the update will be implemented gradually and you will have to be patient
even if all the system requirements for windiws11 are met.


I just bought a Windows 10 Pro product key and I am currently using Windows 11 Home Edition. When I enter the product key in Windows 11 Home, there is an error. So, I asked if I can use the Windows 10 pro product key in Windows 11 Home



Please report this to the feedback center , because it is the Microsoft store that confirms the license .Your version of the system is provided by the insider program so it falls under the rules of that program , but now I think it will not be possible because the key is for the production version .

I have solved the issue on my own. Now it is confirmed. Thanks for your concern.
yes you can activate windows 11 pro
