Windows 10 changing OS Serial Number RRS feed

  • Question

  • We currently use the Windows Serial Number among other things such as hardware to generate a unique key for licencing purposes for our software. 

    For some reason with the latest Win 10 updates this number is being. 

    Does anyone know why Microsoft would do this, serial numbers should be unique and never change that is the whole idea of a serial number.

    It seems that this issue was not related to windows desktop development, if you want to know why the serial number has been changed after you updated the latest windows 10, you might need to ask your question on answer site.
