How do I upgrade my eval to licensed version of windows 10? Thank you!

    From the same visual studio download page you can also do Get Key then

    Phone activation;

    slui 4

    may be an option. You can also try getting a new different key, otherwise I think you'll need to submit a case here with subscription support.

    It may also be that Visual Studio product keys are constrained to using the Visual Studio distribution media. Subscription support should be able to confirm this one way or another.

    or also contact the activation center directly.

    I tried to enter Windows 10 enterprise key and got below error message:

    The software licensing service reported that the product SKU is not found

    Code 0xC004F069

    Hi,

    To continue using Visual Studio after a trial period ends, unlock it with an online subscription or a product key.

    You may refer to the following link for details:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/ide/how-to-unlock-visual-studio?view=vs-2019#enter-a-product-key

    As Dave said, if you need a definite answer you'd better contact the activation center directly.

    Best Regards,
