Windows 10 19H1 build 18277 now rolling out for Insiders in the Fast ring

Control Alexa from your Windows 10 PC

Some Windows 10 users are reporting license issues resulting in warnings that their system is not activated.

The file associations issue is something that was reported to Microsoft back in May by Windows Insiders, and according to Forbes it's existed in various forms since 2015.

Amazon released the Alexa app for Windows 10 today, which lets you operate the Alexa voice assistant with your voice or keyboard from a PC. Others were told simply to wait awhile and see if the problem would fix itself. While forum participants had described the problem early on as affecting the Pro edition of Windows 10, Microsoft later suggested the glitch may have affected "some customers' Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise machines". "This happens in Japan, Korea, America and many other countries", wrote the support agent. Assuming you have a genuine key and all of a sudden you have received Windows Activation Error 0x800704cF, then this error means we didn't find a valid Windows license for your computer.

Following the creation of a number of support threads and social media comments, Microsoft has confirmed the flaw and addressed - though without explanation, beyond a separate claim of a 'temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server' - its cause. I have in the last 30 min had my windows install tell me that it's no longer activated and that my digital licence is invalid?! Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late November 2018. Intel issued buggy driver but we fixed it, says Microsoft Intel accidentally pushed an incompatible audio driver to Windows 10 devices through Windows Update.

The delay has no precedent in Windows 10 and has gone on significantly longer than instances in prior editions when updates, a lot of them security fixes, had to be pulled and then later re-released.
