Windows 7: Problem Validating Win 10 with Product Key

Problem Validating Win 10 with Product Key

I used MDADiag tool to generate the report shown in the attachment. The report did not allow copy so I cut and pasted the graphic. The report also generated the error "failed to create output files" shown below the report. Here's the history of my OS versions:
  • Dell Inspiron came with Vista
  • I updated to seven pro a couple of years ago using an OEM disk purchased from Amazon
  • The computer has been running happily with 7 Pro
  • I had mucho problems upgrading to Windows 10 with lots of starts and non-finishes
  • I finally got Ten to install after saving my data and doing a clean install using the Windows 7 Pro OEM disk, but it says that I need to activate my copy. Ten is running fine now
I used ShowKeyPlus utility to reveal my product key, and the key was generated as shown in the other screen capture.
