Complaints landed on Reddit, starting with a user who said he has been running Windows 10 Pro just fine for years, dating back to when he migrated from Windows 8 Pro to Windows 10 Pro for free.

Some Windows 10 users got a nasty surprise yesterday when Microsoft informed them their copy of Windows wasn't licensed anymore. Apparently there is something wonky going on with Microsoft's activation servers. However, several Insiders have also reported of similar deactivations indicating that this could be a problem at Microsoft's end. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.I am very sorry to inform you that there is a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server at the moment and some customers might experience this issue where Windows is displayed as not activated.

Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union add baby to family
When Dwyane Wade missed Wednesday night's Heat win over San Antonio for "personal reasons", he wasn't kidding around. The new addition comes after a frustrating few years for the couple as they struggled to conceive.

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

The reports of Windows activation problems follow Microsoft's decision to halt the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to resolve a data-wiping bug. If needed, you can try your luck with Microsoft Support to see if they can issue a replacement Pro key but it shouldn't take long before Microsoft corrects the error.

To the relief of the bruised Insider team (but no one else), it soon became apparent that the issue is not just isolated to those courageous souls trying out preview code, but over many versions of Windows 10.
