Windows 10: Upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 from wiithin built-in admin acc
Upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 from wiithin built-in admin acc
I am beginning to think what I was told elsewhere recently may be true--that upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 FROM WITHIN THE BUILT-IN ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT may do irreparable damage to the operating system. I upgraded both my laptop and main work machine a couple of months after the free upgrade became available last year.
I have no problems using both Dragon Naturally Speaking (v. 15) and the "Metro" and other special MS and store apps (e.g., Edge and Calculator) simultaneously on my laptop which I upgraded from within a non-built-in administrator account. I upgraded my main work machine (desktop) from within the built-in administrator account and I cannot get DNS and the MS and store apps to work together. I have tried changing the Local Security Policy UAC settings as recommended in various postings (particularly but not only enabling “Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator Account”) and I have tried EnableLUA at both 0 and 1 in the registry (it is 1 on the laptop)—the graphic UAC slider is set at the lowest setting on both machines.
As I mentioned above, someone recently suggested to me that my system is probably hopelessly corrupted because I upgraded to Windows 10 from within my built-in administrator account. Still, an sfc scan shows no problems. Furthermore, I did a DISM image refresh and it too reported no problem.
What seems particularly suspicious is that after changing local security policy settings for UAC, I eventually can no longer run DNS at all because I get an elevated-mode error message even when I return the settings to exactly what they were originally. I am about to restore the system partition from a backup image for the second time in a couple of days for this reason. In addition, it makes no difference whether I am in the built-in administrator account or in a normal administrator account — I get exactly the same error messages and behavior — regardless of my tweaks to the UAC settings in local security policy and regardless of whether EnableLUA is on or off.
I have a lot of time invested in configuration on this system and don’t want to give up on it unless I have to. I suppose my next step will be to try a clean boot to see if this problem goes away in which case I might be able to track it down by putting things back in gradually. That is a detective exercise I don’t particularly relish, however — and it would be an exercise in futility if the system itself is fatally corrupted.
If anyone has any thoughts that might be helpful with regard to this situation I would be most grateful if you would share them. I am going away for a week and I’m hoping that someone will be able to help me find my way through this problem before I return to face it again.
Another really scary thought, from my point of view, is what happens now in terms of my Windows 7 upgraded to Windows 10 (pro) license from Microsoft — would they replace the system under the circumstances or on my simply out of luck on that license?
Hi, the built-in speech recognition works with - at least- the universal app calculator. I can't answer for Dragon NS.
(e.g. Hey Cortana, launch speech recognition - All right, starting speech recognition- Hey Cortana run calculator- click mike in speech recognition- - 12
and 12 appears in the Calculator)
(Or just start MS speech recognition and an app from the start menu, and use speech recognition - no need to use Cortana (I don't normally).
Your Win 7 license remains valid, so you could probably reinstall Win 7 on your PC if you wished. Replace which system?
