July 10 meeting topic is:

WINDOWS 10 ACTIVATION
Microsoft introduced its anti-piracy activation scheme with Windows XP.  It is designed to annoy you if you are not using a genuine copy of Windows.
 
Windows will prompt you to activate with Microsoft over the internet when you run Windows for the first time, whether on a new Windows PC or after an upgrade of Windows. It checks in and reports your Windows product key with Microsoft. The activation process will fail if your Windows product key is non-genuine or is being used on another computer. 
 
Come to this meeting and learn about activation/validation of Windows 10 and how it differs from previous versions.
