I’m running Windows 8.0 Pro and I’m curious what exactly is the type of license I have. ?
License was purchased from a third party UK retailer digitally. At first I believed it was a OEM license, but this can’t be right since it was digitally distributed and wasn’t sold with hardware.
I’m also unable to update to 8.1 Pro. Used the store but I get an error saying my version of Windows is unsupported. Tried a tool from “Microsoft Fix-it” and it shows I don’t meet the minimum requirements.
If I try the free update to 8.1 Pro through Microsoft’s website, it shows my system doesn’t meet the requirements because I’m using a volume license.
AFAIK the license I purchased is for Windows 8.0 Pro RTM UK OEM.
Can someone help determine why I’m unable to recieve the 8.1 free update, and the kind of license I have? Can a freeware tool help me figure this out?
