10162 to 10240 - still possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, i am a Windows Insider and I am part of the program since the first days. I am now in holiday since 2 Weeks and i am worried on one thing: I have at home a SP3 with 10162 installed - now when i come back, is it still working cause i read that all keys were deactivated? And is it still possible to get the 10240 over Windows Update? Will I have any running issues cause of the licenses?

    Thank u in advance for ur answers... ;)

    That does not apply to builds already installed.
    Yours will stay activated. You don't have to worry.

    Yes, you can still get 10240 through Windows Update.

    ......Will I have any running issues cause of the licenses?

    No, you shouldn't have any of such issues.

  • If you current build is activated and running a Home or Pro version, it should stay activated if you upgrade to 10240.

    If you installed the Enterprise version, you can upgrade but you need to wait for an official MAK key (MSDN or VLSC) to activate. You can still use the KMS Client key (NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43) but you'll need to update the KMS Server Host key to validate the (VLSC Only)

  • Both the ISO'S and the Keys to activate have been suspended because of the pending release of win 10.  You should stay where you are until its release and decide if you want to continue as part of the insider program or convert to the release path.
