I was on Windows 10 Home edition, I upgraded my laptop to Windows 11. After doing so, I purchased through Microsoft Store, The pro edition.

Now it wont let me activate Windows and keeps coming up with the following error:

We cant activate Windows on this device because you don't have a valid digital license or product key.
If you think you do have a valid license or key, select troubleshoot below. Error code: 0xC004C003

    Hello,

    So if you tried upgrade to Pro but eventually it turned out to Enterprise edition, this is a known issue.
