I am opening this topic to centralize all information about migrating to Windows 10. No much for now, but important points to be aware anyway.
P.S : Of course, only information related to MT4/MT5 will be reported here.

According to the purchase agreement the term bound to a “specific
operating system” is not clearly defined. This needs to be clearly clarified in the purchase agreement.
All Windows updates no matter how minor or major alter Windows
components. Therefore each and every minor Windows update could in theory result
in having to re-activate each EA for every update.
There is also a possible major update for Windows 10 (Threshold
wave 2) coming soon and it is not clear whether or not updating to this will
require each EA to be re-activated.
The end of extended support from Microsoft is as follows (from Microsoft's website):
Windows 7 –
14 January 2020.
Windows 8 –
10 January 2023.
Windows 10 –
14 October 2025.
So if you are using your computer for MT4/5 trading only
it is worth considering whether or not to update it to Windows 10 and loss an
EA activation. If you are running Windows 8 now, then you only get another two
years out of the additional activation if you were to update to Windows 10.
Also will your computer last until 2025 or are you like
to upgrade the computer before then? Might be better to wait and use the
activation when / if you decide get a new computer nearer the time.
Just some point to consider before deciding to update.
