Is it just me, or does anyone else get really nervous about taking windows 10 updates (especially the major ones). Every time i take a major update, it logs out all my MT4 terminals from the broker, as well logs the terminal out of MQL5. After logging my terminal back into MQL5, i try to redownload  a MQL5 purchased products onto the same machine, it counts it as a new registrations. I've used 3 registrations on a MQL5 EA purchase within a years time. Anyone else have the same frustration?

It was discussed many times by many users with MetaQuotes participation and with many threads so seems you came late here :)

As far as I know - all the issues were solved.
It is the posts/threads I collected on this thread by links just for information.

Attention: Windows 10 Creators Update to make saved MetaTrader passwords invalid

Attention: Windows 10 Creators Update to make saved MetaTrader passwords invalid

On the 11th of April, Microsoft will release the Windows 10 Creators Update, after which the Windows version will be completely updated. In fact, this update is similar to installing a new operating system, because it will change configurations and encryption keys. The MetaTrader platform uses data binding to an operating system and hardware, in order to protect traders' data. This binding means that even if the platform files are stolen, thieves will not be able to connect to the trader's account or use products purchased from the Market.

Unfortunately, after the operating system change caused by the installation of the Windows 10 Creators Update, all the trading account passwords stored on your computer will become invalid. We highly recommend that you prepare for the new Windows release and save your passwords in a safe place, in order to be able to connect to your accounts after the update.

In addition, due to the change of encryption keys, one activation of applications purchased from the Market will be lost, because all products are bound to an operating system. We will automatically add one activation for each purchased product, regardless of the operating system, similar to the activations that we added after the Windows 10 update from version 1511 to 1607. It means that you will not lose your product activations after the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.

Activations of demo products will also be lost, you will need to re-download such applications from the Market.
