Hello Experts,

I'm hoping there is a 'correct' way to complete this in-place upgrade from Win7 Pro to win10 Enterprise as it may be a common scenario.

I have Win7 workstations that have MS Office 2010 installed and am wanting to complete in-place upgrades to Win10 Enterprise and retain the MS office 2010 installations. Sound like a reasonable request ?.

Currently, when I complete the in-place upgrade and open any of the MS Office 2010 products I am prompted to activate MS Office again

My research so far suggests MS Office thinks its on a completely new installation because I am upgrading from a Pro edition to Enterprise edition of Windows.

We activate and maintain Office and Windows licences using a MS KMS server.

Thanks heaps in advance
