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


    Well, On this PC is Windows 7 Home edition SP1 x64. I did not have the "Get windows 10" app, so I tried to download it from this guide. It went well. I then tried to install it, but Windows wrote, that this update is already installed! So I still don't have the "Get windows 10 app" :-(

    What can I try now?

    I noticed the same thing on my PC (Win7).
    I installed one of the non-essential updates waiting for me (think it was an update to IE) and rebooted, and there the icon was.
    Don't know if this can work out for you.

    Personally I would consider myself "lucky" not to have it show up.

    I would think that this being a Windows 10 Forum that the majority of members would have an opposite opinion.

    Thanks, I found that after some time using Google. But this will come in hand for others I bet.

    No need to be worried
    ... it's Microsoft's way of gauging how many people will update early. It's also a way for MS to stage pieces of the update on your machine before 29 July.
    but I think you know this already ....

    For me, it's a challenge to try and get the dam thing to show up. It would be nice to know what the Win10 Appraiser thinks about my Win7 box ... in case I need to ....... well there isn't a whole lot to consider, either Win10 will install on that box or it stays on Win7.

    Win10 TP is running fine on the box - so there must be something MS is working on that might affect the particular device (the Realtek SDcard drivers 'fail' to install, but they work)

    I'll uninstall the KB if gwx ever does show up, since I plan on waiting until the Redstone Q1 2016 release to update anyway.

    You'll have to uninstall the KB first, then run Windows update to get it back.

    See if anything in my thread helps (nothing that I've tried has helped on a Dell Win7 Intel box)

    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.
