    Maybe it takes a bit longer to get to Pakistan?
    yea you are right but i even have not installed the update which brought this reservation App I.e KB 3035583 i checked in my installed updates for that. actually this update was provided by Microsoft few months ago and pakistani consumers should have it already for now.

    Hmmmm! I'm not sure I really want to give up my Windows 8.1 for Windows 10, so before I install 10, I'll clone my main HD to another similar drive, so I preserve my 8.1, just in case I don't really like Windows 10.

    I'll have basically a Dual Boot system, with 8.1 on one HD and Win-10 on another.

    Y'all have a great day now, Y'hear?

    I followed the steps in the 2nd post here and it enabled the notification:

    I want to reserve my free copy of Windows 10, but I dont see - Microsoft Community


    1. Open Notepad
    2. Copy the following text and paste it into Notepad:

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Appraiser" /v UtcOnetimeSend /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    schtasks /run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser"
    :CompatCheckRunning
    schtasks /query /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser" | findstr Ready >nul
    if NOT "%errorlevel%" == "0" ping localhost >nul &goto :CompatCheckRunning
    schtasks /run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Setup\gwx\refreshgwxconfig"

    1. Click File, and then Save As
    2. In the File name box, change the file name to ReserveWin10.cmd
    3. Then click the dropdown next to Save as type, and select All files (*.*)
    4. Select the folder you would like to save the file to. For this example, letís choose to save the file to the C:/Temp folder. Then click Save.
    5. Open an elevated command prompt. (From the Start screen or Start menu, type Command Prompt in the search box, and then in the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator.)
    6. Finally, run the file from the location you saved to in Step 6. In this example, you would type the following in the Command Prompt window and hit Enter:
      Run C:/Temp/ReserveWin10.cmd

    I got my notice and it won't go away. It is in my task bar. On reboot (Win 7 Ultimate) it pops up again. Not a big deal but I may not want it there all the time. I haven't tried many options yet to get rid of it.

    Edit: I went into the task bar properties and was able to hide it but it is part of the task bar entries now.
    Turn it off using Notification Area Icons from Control Panel

    Or you can do what my edit says and go to the properties in the task bar and turn it off.

    So what about the people running 10 TP, are they not worthy of being able to reserve their copy, that they have to roll back to avoid downloading it on day 1.

    I don't know if MS has formally announced if you can update from the TP to the final release yet and how it would be done.

    That has not been announced yet what TP users will get or not get. I am almost sure we will get it before GA.

    This works only for the main bar. I mean, even if you turn it off from notifications area you still have it when clicking to show the notifications(at least this happened to me).
