    Win 7 Pro ; Win 8.1 Pro

    Get Win 10 Pro as Free Upgrade


    I am not a business. I have 4 computers at home running Win 7 Pro and 1 running 8.1 Pro. When I upgrade to Win 10 will I get the "Pro" version? Seems like I should as I have invested extra money in the earlier versions.

    Thanks,

    KayEee

    When I upgraded windows 7 home (oem) to windows 8 for £14.99 at the discounted price it was at for a while, I have got windows 8 pro.

    Not that there is much difference I believe but why did they give me pro.

    I think this was a special offer for early adopters of win 8, they got the pro version for a low price

    which will now give you the 10 pro for no extra cost (if you upgrade in next 12 months)

    Not the same deal as the free upgrade offer on hand now. In the past if you bought an upgrade version it was a set version regardless of what version you were upgrading from. Example, Windows 8 Pro upgrade for x dollars. This free upgrade is dependent on what version your upgrading from.

    What ever happened to that $1 upgrade from Home to Pro? I know, not happening, but do we have a real price and can it be done through the Windows Store?

    I run only the Pro version on all of my machines. I have been doing that since the XP days. It gives better control over what users can and cannot do.
