Hi,

 

Where can I download the activation key for windows 10 pro? I don't seem to be able to find the key anymore under software benefit.

 

Thank you.

MPN Benefits never included Windows 10 Pro, "only" Windows 10 Enterprise/E3 was included, but since this is an upgrade license it requires a Windows 10 pro license on the device. Since early 2021 the Windows 10 E3 benefit is part of the M365 E3 license which is provided to Partners, so instead of having a key, you now assign the M365 E3 license to the user and Win10 E3 is activated via AzureAD. See also Windows 10 Subscription Activation - Windows Deployment | Microsoft Docs for info on how to activate via AzureAD
