    Now I got the app
    After installing all updates on Windows update, I still did not see it. And after reading your answers, I tried to uninstall the update with the app, and reinstall it. But no luck. Still no app

    I then remember reading something about drivers for the PC must also be up tp date, so I went to MSI (it is a MSI mobo), and downloaded a driverpack for this mobo. It turned out, that I had to update the driver for LAN. After this update and a reboot, the "app-flag" showed up in the taskbar, so maybe Windows own LAN-driver is too old? I did only two driverupdates, VGA and LAN. And one of these was the solution, it seems.

    Thankyou for your time spend trying to narrow it down to a solution

    Just the FAQs
    PCs that we determine cannot run Windows 10 will not see the Get Windows 10 app before July 29, 2015.
    After July 29, 2015, well enable the icon in the system tray. This is to help ensure that you can easily check your PCs compatibility if you choose.
    Why not enable the icon and allow end users to easily check your PCs compatibility before 29 July?
    ->disable the reservation piece if the PC fails compat checking, but keep checking.
    A simple fix - update software, run maintenance on the machine, or plug in some device might make the PC compatible - I really don't know because I can't see the compat report - I can see that my compat flag is Red - great! How come?

    I'll have to see if the gwx.log tells me more (C:\Windows\Logs\gwx) - the last time I looked, it wasn't very informative.

    This 'issue' is a marketing nightmare, IMO. Too many people don't see the icon and then all of a sudden for unknown reasons it automagically appears.

    Windows 8.1 Pro

    I got my notice and reserve on all my Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 machines, afterwards I just disabled the scheduled task so that is does not startup anymore.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be getting the notice via email and don't need the notification icon service running all the time now up until Windows 10 gets released, I suspect the notification icon in time will launch and compatibility check on the machine for drivers and software compatible with Windows 10 with a future Windows update.

Solved Win 10 a "refresh" or an "upgrade" from Win 7 and Win 8?
I have been under the impression that Win 10 may be like an upgrade so you don't have to re-install all your desktop programs. If it is a "refresh" what a pain :( If it is an upgrade will it kill Windows Media Center or might it actually survive...
