Since Friday I have been getting a message that my Windows 8.1 is due to expire. Which is strange as I am sure it validated when the update came through. I bought the PC last year, just before 8.1 was due to be released. If I check the system it says it is NOT validated. However, if I run winver it says that the product IS licensed to me. Having gone through several online checks nothing seems to validate my copy.
The Key I had originally does not validate the 8.1 update, nothing seems to do this. This morning I found the error code somehow. This says it's for Server 2003 and Windows 7. Yet this doesn't seem possible as I never updated this from Win 7 to Win 8. So how am I getting a error code for it? apparently my 8.1 will expire on August 2nd. I'd like to clear this up well before then. I have reserved Win 10, though whether it will actually come through now I am not sure.
I hope someone can please help me sort this out.
