Does anyone know anything about Microsoft's"Windows 10 free upgrade for customers who use ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES"? The page only explain Microsofts commitment to help those in need and say the the upgrade is still available, it then there is UPGRADE NOW button at the bottom, which is a link to save an executable file called - "Windows10Upgrade24074.exe"
WHAT IS THAT FILE GOING TO DO? I'm not on the machine the I want to upgrade window to or it's really a matter or activation the OS once it's been upgraded, right.
Ok, so here's what I'm trying to do TONIGHT ... I have some good friends who have had their laptops fail this weekend. They would both qualify for the Assistive Tech upgrade, cause one uses a magnified screen all the time due to eye sight, and the other can't type very well so she uses speech. I have one of their laptops here with me tonight and the problem was simply a hard drive failure. I went out today and got a 320 to replace the dead 250 for $25 bucks and the were thrilled at that price. Now ... of course this machine was still Win 7, I'm thinking now problem because I have heard about the assistive technologies upgrade offer. But now what?
What I'm asking is "What is that file"?? What does it do? I've downloaded it onto my computer, but I'm not going to run it on this machine. My plans was to install the new HHD and using my creation tool (version 1607) to install the new OS. I'm thinking that is when I should run that file, after the new OS is installed and running and the I would run that file to help get their Windows Activated.
Is that a good plan? I do have the Win 7 product key.
If anyone knows about this, please get back to me tonight. I'll be here in the forum and online with my computer while I'm going through the install on the laptop.
