If you received this error message,  error codes 0X803F8001, 0xC004C003. don’t panic, it’s a Microsoft problem and they are working on it


We are aware of reports that some customers’ Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise machines are not recognizing their licenses as activated. Users may receive the following notification: “Error: you are running Windows 10 Pro, but you have valid digital license for Windows 10 Home,” or one of the following error codes 0X803F8001, 0xC004C003.


We are actively working to resolve this within 24 hours. You can still use your PC; however, the watermark will appear until activation is restored. Thank you for your patience.


We will update this post with additional information as needed and once activations are restored. 

It seems to be related to a BETA version of Server 2019 that was causing issues with Azure and they started pulling it back.

Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.
