Can I change my Microsoft Account


I have a hotmail account that my Microsoft hardware and software purchases are tied to.

I also have subscribed to O365 Business account (E3).

I am having issues with logging into O365 account.

For some reason, my hotmail accounts shows up as user name for O365 apps like MS Project.

Is there a way to move my purchased apps and hardware to my O365 account, in trying, Microsoft does not recongnize my O365 account as a Microsoft account.

Any suggestions?

    <p>You can't move purchased content from one microsoft account to another. Purchases are tied to the account they are purchased on.</p>
