Windows 10: I still don't have the "Get windows 10 app" Solved

    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 :)

    yeah if theyre gonna hit the 1 billion users line in time, they have to do things like this in order to "sell" it out, marketing stuff. however - MS also stated, that if you dont receive it, your system doesnt support it.
    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.

    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.
