I am currently facing an issue after upgrading a Windows 7 Pro (OEM Edition) to Windows 10 Pro following updates provided by Microsoft, whereby while checking my activation status, I found the following message:

"Connect to the internet to activate Windows"

I tried to activate it manually from the "Settings" window, but it gave me:

"Windows can't activate right now. Try activating again later. If that doesn't work, contact support. Error code 0xD0000272."

Any other way I can proceed to activate?

Proxy server was acting weird at that time, issue solved afterwards...
