    Get Windows 10 Working On It Then Close


    Hi all,
    I originally started installing windows 10 error free. There was a power outage but everything was recovered and I did not notice any problems. I try to install windows 10 again and when I click ok, let's continue it says, "working on it" for 10 seconds and just closes. It doesn't continue with the licencing and install and upgrading in general, it just closes. I tried waiting, I tried attempting it multiple times and I checked task manager to see if it was still open. Nothing. I am absolutely lost and can't upgrade now *Sad. Please help.
    Thanks,


    EDIT: I did some more research and I am going to uninstall and reinstall the get windows 10 update. Does anyone know how to do this?

    EDIT: Went to windows update and found this: Easy solution?

    SOLVED! The problem was, when the power outage happened the preparation for windows 10 was deleted. I had to go to windows update and reinstall the preparation manually.

    Get Windows 10 - hanging on "working on it"

    Why on earth doesn't Microsoft warn you of this possible lengthy time to download before starting. - up to 24 hours?!

    I can't leave my pc on for that time and mine has been hanging for hours.

    Get Windows 10 - hanging on "working on it"

    I found this workaround on a thread over at windowcentral.com:

    Don't use the "Get Windows 10" notification icon on the bottom right; do the following instead:

    A) Go to Windows Updates, if Windows 10 is not listed, click Check for Updates

    B) Install all Important pending updates 1st, then go to step A

    This worked for me. I was on Windows 7 64 Home Premium.
