Windows 10 Home upgrade to Pro issue

Hi Expert,

I am unable to use MAK Windows 10 pro license key to upgrade from Windows 10 Home, under Windows Home Activation it's shown "Windows is activated with a digital license"

Is windows digital license incompatible MAK Windows 10 pro license thus unable to upgrade to pro?

Thanks!

Getting "The product key you entered didn't work. Check the product key and try again, or enter a different one. (0xc004f050)

I still have many licenses left in the MAK, strange though, but this the first time I tried a direct upgrade.

Thanks!

Same problem with the generic key?

Home does not convert to pro and if you read the VL license agreement,is not a legal upgrade path.  You'll have to purchase a pro retail upgrade or work with Microsoft to do a one time "true up" to get all of your home devices legally to Pro.
