    I have a new computer with Windows 10 and my Epson scanner V 330 now works sporadically.

    Check with Epson for the drivers and scanner software for windows 10 for both units. There is win 10 software for the V330. Stand alone scanners do not run well on windows 10. You might be better off using the new model for everything. The 2 epsons could
    be conflicting depending on which one you used last. You have to install both as separate units.

    Windows 7 Family Pack licenses and Windows 10 upgrades

    "Quote from Microsoft:

    Stand-alone software. If you acquired the software as stand-alone software (and also if you upgraded from software you acquired as stand-alone software), you may transfer the software to another device that belongs to you.... Every time you transfer
    the software to a new device, you must remove the software from the prior device.


    This pertains to retail licenses. "

    I thought my Windows 7 family pack was a retail license. How could it not be considered "stand-alone software"?

    And if it is a retail license, doesn't "also if you upgraded from software you acquired as stand-alone software"
    mean that I now have 3 Windows 10 retail licenses?

    Note: If you answer yes, you have to tell me how I go about installing Windows 10 on a computer after the free upgrade period.

    Thanks for all the help Could Windows 10 Be the Last Stand-Alone Windows Release? :)

    Could Windows 10 Be the Last Stand-Alone Windows Release?

    I would not be surprised. In fact I expect it.. if MS can get the upgrade to work well for the release of Win10 I'm game for it.

    I'm not sure why this is suddenly a huge surprise, as when the first preview was released this was already being talked about on the official blogs. News flash, someone says something that was said 9 months ago, suddenly news again.

    it will all depend if the upgrade goes well for windows 7 users or the likelihood of ppl upgrading will be nil. I can see 8.1 users upgrading, it is basically the same as windows 10 with a few extra features so it is less if things go wrong.

    I kept saying this some weeks prior to the first TP release. No surprise to me at all.

    Hi there

    There will ALWAYS have to be some type of clean install -- people forget that sometimes new hardware is actually bought these days too !!!! - whether the OEM installs windows or the end user if it's a brand new machine there will have to be an initial install.

    Cheers

  12. I would agree there. Maybe in a year, you could get an OEM DVD-ROM installation that has the complete OS with the last seven revisions built right in. And then you'd have to download the last two builds to completely update your system.

    I would agree there. Maybe in a year, you could get an OEM DVD-ROM installation that has the complete OS with the last seven revisions built right in. And then you'd have to download the last two builds to completely update your system. The DVD is already listed on Newegg for sale. So I suspect it will come out when the new OS is released.

    Yes, of course there will... but what there won't be is a full on big release version like we have had in the past, more like what happened with Windows 8.1, and the various updates that followed.

    What will happen is that Microsoft will release rolling updates that include all patches and new features using the "flighting" technology. New installs will start from a base, then update to the latest, and Microsoft will periodically update the base image to include the recent flights.
