  2. I can't install KB3035583; how do I get the "Get Windows 10" icon in my desktop tray?

    If the Reservation application (Windows 10 app) has a blank screen or does not work or is not available:

    Please be aware even if you do not get the Windows 10 app, you can still download Windows 10 as a .ISO file, create a bootable copy and upgrade your system.

    How
    to: upgrade from previous versions of Windows using Windows 10 ISO file





    • [*]Check Windows Update for an updated version of KB2952664 (Windows 7 SP1) or KB2976978 (Windows 8.x)


    [*]After installing the Windows Update, re-run the Compatibility Appraiser. This will happen automatically within a day or it can be run manually from an admin command prompt:

    • schtasks.exe /Run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser"
    Once started, it may take 10 minutes or so for the appraiser to complete. Once complete, re-open the Get Windows 10 app and it will have the updated compatibility information.

    Restart your computer and try again.

    If the above does not work, try uninstalling both updates:

    Press Windows key + X (for Windows 7 click Start, type: cmd then right click
    cmd and click Run as administrator)

    Click Command Prompt (Admin)

    At the command prompt, enter the following commands:

    wusa /uninstall /kb:3035583

    wusa /uninstall /kb:2952664

    Exit the command prompt, restart and run Windows Update again.

    If the problem persist, see the following:

  3. I can't install KB3035583; how do I get the "Get Windows 10" icon in my desktop tray?

    Dear Andre:

    Thank you for reminding me that the ISO download will be available after July 29th. I was so focused on the "Get Windows 10 icon" I forgot that.

    I checked Windows Update and while KB3035583 was not installed KB2952664 is there on the list. This machine does have some quirks of its own.
    I'm going to follow your suggestions and hopefully I'll be able to download the W10 ISO after July 29th.

    Thank you for your help.

    How do I get the Anniversary Update??

    click windows + R keys simultaneously and enter winver. On the pop up view you windows version and build. The latest is windows 1703 build 15063.138. The creator's update or version 1703 became available to everyone via windows updates on 4/11/2017. You can go to windows update and update now. Alternatively you can go to a Microsoft web site to get the update: Download Windows 10.

    That is incorrect. Microsoft began a phased rollout of Creator's Update on 4/11/2017 via Windows Update. It is not available to everyone on Windows Update yet and some people won't be able to go to Windows Update and update now for possibly months from now.

    Since you asked about the Anniversary Update, and not the Creator's Update, you want to look for version 1607 and the 14393.xxx build series in winver. Version 1607 and a build number starting with 14393 is the Anniversary Update. The only way to get the Anniversary Update now that the Creator's Update has been released is to download an older ISO file of it and the easy way to do that is this tool:
    Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool

    Using their tool, you want Windows 10 - Redstone 1 - July 2016.

    To update your current Windows 10 to the Anniversary Update (if it isn't there), mount the ISO file and run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file.

    There is another way without using a 3rd-party tool (although that one is safe, it does download direct from Microsoft). It's slightly more complicated, but you can use method one here...
    How to Download Creators Update ISO via MS w/o Media Creation Tool
    ...to make IE or Edge pretend to be a 'non-windows' browser. Then https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 will redirect you to a page where you can download an .iso of your choice, including the Anniversary Update.

    Just to add, I did the MCT/Media Creation Tool thingy on Thursday to download the .iso and created the DVD. It installed Version 1607 Build 14393.447 then it updated to Version 1607 Build 14393.1066.

    How do I get the Anniversary Update??

    If you still have an old copy of the MCT it will still download the .iso it was created for. I have a collection of them and used an original one to make a 10240 .iso last month. If you download the MCT today it makes a Creators Update .iso.
     
  9. After navigating through a few links I managed to get the update and I am now at 1703.
