Yes I had internet when I ran HWIDGEN giving me activation successfully, I also checked in the windows cmd, with the slmgr / xpr command and it is activated permanently

But if I go to format the activation is canceled, which for example with PRO or Home does not happen
maybe something has changed because the digital license is baked in if it's done correctly (I'll test when I have time somewhere next week)

So I was actually creating a virtual machine for Windows 10, and I tested if HWIDGEN was still working.
I created a brand new virtual machine and used the latest ISO of Windows 10 untouched from MSDN. I installed Windows 10 Education and immediately used HWIDGEN to activate the software. After it had successfully activated, I deleted the virtual hard drive, and added a new one, while keeping all other components intact. I again installed Windows 10 using the same ISO and it activated automatically without me touching anything.
So, HWIDGEN still works.
Yes, the activations after formatting with the Home, Pro, Education editions etc. also work for me. The problem is that they don't work after formatting only on LTSB 2016 and recently I also tried LTSB 2015 and activation after formatting doesn't work in this either. Try installing LTSB and see if it still works, not other versions like Education, Home or Pro
In general, Windows 10 Enterprise is not typically activated by HWID because it is now a subscription service for Enterprise users only. If HWID worked for them before, I wouldn't act surprised if they don't work anymore because Windows 10 Enterprise no longer supports HWID based activations and there is a possibility M$FT may have disabled HWID activations for older versions in a recent update.
UPDATE: I got my machine activation updated to 6512 Grace(Days) using the clean mode of hwid.kms38.gen.mk6.exe !

I took the advice from @microtechton and  @chillgates and downloaded the iso from MS, and used Rufus to burn it to a usb thumb drive.

Then I took a spare hard drive and installed Win10 Pro 64bit on the blank hard drive, and stayed offline (unplugged rj45), so I could play with the auto program hwid.kms38.gen.mk6.exe without fear of breaking my existing system or having microsoft "discover me and throw me in jail", lol.

I disabled windows defender real-time protection, and launched the auto program "hwid" as admin. Once it was opened I noticed a mode: pulldown menu with an option for clean! This was great, because I had tried to download Ratiborus KMS Cleaner, but it didn't work on my version of KMSPico, so i was afraid I would need to reinstall windows from scratch...

So after I activated the ms iso version of win 10 pro 64, I understood how the program worked and what it did, so I tried it on my real system, unplugging the network cable, disabling MS defender, and running as admin.

I used the clean mode to get rid of the licensing keys or certs or whatever was keeping the renewal time / grace at 170 days, and then followed that up with the menu item for KMS38, which succeed in activation to the 6512 days!

I also ran windows defender in offline mode to scan my complete hard drive for virus / infections leftover from KMSPico, and nothing was found, and I followed it up with the same process from malware bytes.

So I feel happy that I can continue to use this os version that I have customized since January and I don't need to start over.

Thanks to all that helped, and thanks to Dumpster Inc for the auto program!
