  • Control Alexa from your Windows 10 PC

Earlier this week, some Windows 10 users reported that they were unable to select certain apps as their default choices.

The delay of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update has apparently resulted in some unexpected frustrations for certain OEMs according to a report by Petri's Brad Sams who has spoken to several company employees off the record.

Maybe it's better to get a Laptop that comes with the Pro Version already installed and a sticker on the bottom of the device that has a Win 10 Pro License from the get go and not some Home License that's been upgraded to a Pro license. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.I am very sorry to inform you that there is a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server at the moment and some customers might experience this issue where Windows is displayed as not activated.

Previously the app was only available preloaded on compatible PCs from brands like Lenovo, but Alexa is now available from the Windows 10 store. Current support statements indicate Microsoft is expecting to release the fix in a day or two. It's not yet known what is causing the problem but rest assured that Microsoft is well aware of the problem and is working to get everything running smoothly again. For customers that have deployed Pro in their work environments, this is creating headaches with unnecessary support tickets from users who suddenly think they may now be using a pirated version of the software.

In some good news though, the Windows 10 activation problem seems to have been fixed.

However, some users are also reporting issues with fresh installs. Yes, you read that right. In this case, the user has no option but to ignore the message and wait for the fix.
