    WIN 11 Upgrade "can't find the necessary files ... "


    Surface Pro 7+ i7 32gigs, 64-bit , Windows 10 I have been trying to upgrade to Windows 11 through the first link here. "can't find the necessary files please check if you have permission to write to the installation folder" -Why is this happening? -How do I fix it? -Why does everything always have to be so difficult with Windows? I understand computers are great ,"but they don't always do what you want", but isn't there at least some drawer plan to start releasing grandma friendly update assistant tools?

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond WIN 11 Upgrade "can't find the necessary files ... " :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    WIN 11 Upgrade "can't find the necessary files ... "

    is hardware OK (Win 7) for upgrade to windows 10

    I think in one of the other PC with win 7 or win 8.1 I run media creators tools and in some step prompt/found graphics card not supported... for win 10. I didn't found alone reading specs of win 10, but the tool says me... after changed graphics card the tool said all OK and continued OK with upgrade... That I ask to reach this step in this current PC - win 7 - must be all OK for the upgrade? Or must continue to upgrade to show this?
    and got to point

    • UPGRADE this PC now
    • Create media(DVD, USB stick, ISO)
    is hardware OK (Win 7) for an upgrade to windows 10 for this PC???
