    I'd make sure all updates have been manually checked for, and run, if available. Seems to have started and finished on my 8.1 Pro system after installing updates.

    W10 Pro, W10 Home

    Would not being logged into a Microsoft Account be a problem with not getting the download? I didn't set up a MS account when I installed W7 on this PC a few years ago.

    W7 32 bit, Linux Mint Xfce 18 64 bit

    I noticed a strange thing in the registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\UpgradeExperienceIndicators\Reduced


    What does the reduced key mean?


    @BunnyJ Do have the reduced key as well?

    Hi All,
    Per paulsalter " look in c:\$windows.~bt

    if this folder exists windows is downloading 10 update (make sure it has todays date on it)"
