    Please only post this question one time.. it will be addressed if someone can help you out.
    And.. where did you get the exe from?? I've never heard of it before. When I did an upgrade from Win8.1 to Win10 for a test I used the ISO.

    1. I've never heard of that before and I doubt many here have either since we have updated from either the Windows Update or an ISO.

    2. Only start one thread with a question not two. It's hard for others to help you out when a subject is spread out like this.

    Unfortunately I think you have to. I don't think they offer the 'Upgrade Assistant' as a separate utility any more, it's built into the iso when you mount it and click 'Setup'. It will let you know if your PC is compatible or not.
    It ends up being the same procedure with the exception of having to download a large file first.

Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
