I have updated to windows 10 anniversary update 1607.. my licence information is somewhat misleading..in windows 10 under activation my system shows that i have a digital licence linked to my Microsoft account but on running winver command it shows "This product is licensed under the Microsoft Software Licence Terms to: Windows User. My question is is why is winver command not showing my Microsoft mail account in place of Windows User. any help would be greatly appreciated.. reply ???

Mine does not show what yours does, but it also does not show my Microsoft account login id, which is my Gmail account.  It shows on one line my first and last names followed by "Bri the Tech Guy" beneath it.  I have no idea where or when I entered the "Bri the Tech Guy" information but it's not showing up under Organization in system settings.  I'm sure I did, but where and when are lost in the mists of memory.


I have seen times where there appears to be a partial disconnect between the local machine and the Microsoft Account associated with it.  Most times I've been able to cure that by going into User Accounts and choosing "Manage my Microsoft Account" from there and simply logging in and logging out of the Microsoft account.  you could try that.

It seems to be a bug in the AU 1607 and the winver info can be changed as below


Fix Wrong User in WinVer

To fix it....
C:\Users\defaultuser0 or ()

In registry:
1) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\
Change 'RegisteredOwner" as per your wish.

2) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\
Under this delete the whole folder which has 'ProfileImagePath' as "C:\Users\defaultuser0"

That's it but you might need to restart
