Windows 10: Windows 10 Anniversary Update Available August 2

  1.    31 Jul 2016 #331

    Hi,
    @nighthawk:

    Another difference to note is that the Insider builds will expire in 90 days compared to the no expiration until 2026 timeframe for 10.
    How can I find out if it will expire in 90 days ?

    TIA,

    Yes, do this @CountMike. Would be interesting to know what you got.
    Sorry, got rid of it.
    P.S. OK, I'll download it again and see.

    Downloading again now, Home, single language x64. Should take an hour, only about 5Mbps download.

    Also run winver. If there is an expiration date it will show at the bottom of the winver result window.

    None shown in Winver so I take it this Insider Preview release won't expire after 90 days. Which should tell us something.....

    Thx, NavyLCDR.

    Yep - like I posted in the other thread about "who will be first to get Anniversary update", thousands if not millions of us already have the Anniversary update installed, running, and even updated with a cumulative update.

    Now if I could just figure out why my father-in-law's computer won't upgrade. It goes to the point where it says the computer will reboot in a few moments, then a window pops up "Installation Failed".

    So I was right. $windows.~bt and $Windows.~WS folders are made by MCT. As soon as it started downloading, those folders were made.

    Hi,

    Exactly.
    To paraphrase our dear Wynona , we "essentially" are having our cake while the rest of the world is still waiting.
    I expect the final release to include the cumulative upgrade. We'll see how they roll it out.

    And saying that I just discovered all that by accident.....
    When I get bored accidents happen.... LOL.
