The “upgrade key”

If you enter a VLK key for Windows 10 Pro on Windows 10 Home, it will not be accepted. What you can do is enter the Windows 10 Pro upgrade key, VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T, let it upgrade, and then enter the VLK.

Unable to upgrade with the “upgrade key”

If you get a message saying you’re unable to upgrade because of error 0xC03F6506 or 0xC004F069, see this post.

Activating with a KMS server

If you’re about to use a VLK, you are probably going to be needing these commands.

cd %windir%\system32
cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk <kms client setup key>
cscript slmgr.vbs /skms
cscript slmgr.vbs /ato
