The Register reports on an angry thread on Microsoft's support forums filled with Windows Mobile users complaining that the Mail and Calendar app no longer opens after an automatic update to version 16006.11001.20083.0.

While there is one review on the app reporting that this version of Alexa can't install skills or access smart home features, the Amazon representative says that you can control devices if you set them up with the web app first. Thing is, going to the Store apparently has no effect. (And some people said they did this.) Some users also said they followed the instructions they received in the erroneous messages and rolled back to Windows 10 Home. However, reports emerged later of similar problems on PCs that had only ever run Windows 10.

Another week, another Windows 10 19H1 Insider Preview build from Microsoft!

Following investigation into the issue, Microsoft's Jeff Jones issued a statement to press: 'A limited number of customers experienced an activation issue that our engineers have now addressed, ' he claimed early this morning.

The agent said some Windows users might be receiving messages saying Windows is not activated and that this was due to "a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server", which would be fixed in "one to two business days".

Microsoft has just released an Emerging issue announcement about current activation issue related to Pro edition recently.

If you are facing the issue, you can resolve it using the Activation troubleshooter, located in the Windows settings, under the Update and Security.

Windows 10 has a number of functions that make it appealing to users, such as its high-degree of customisability.
