    Hi!
    Just installed Parallels 13 yesterday. When activating Windows 10 using brand new unopened OEM key, Windows says "The product key you entered didn´t work. Check or use different one" (0x004f050)
    What can I do? Microsoft could not help and told me to contact you.

    Hi!
    I figured it out yesterday. You cannot use a OEM key, only a key for Single language version. Too bad this isn´t mentioned more clearly.
