"Get Windows 10" app icon doesn't appear in my Windows 7

Postby guest » Wed Aug 19, 2015 9:37 am

Q: Why doesn't "Get Windows 10" app icon appear in my Windows 7 or 8.1 ?

A: Quoted:
Some possible causes are:

1.If your device is or has been connected to a domain, or is managed by a system administrator, it may be blocked from the upgrade reservation. Check with your IT administrator.
2.If your copy of Windows is not genuine, or if you have a Volume License copy (intended for businesses), the icon will not appear. To check this, open a Command Prompt (from the Start menu or screen, search for cmd, right-click on Command Prompt in the results and select Run as administrator), type slmgr /dli and then hit Enter. A window will appear with the channel in the Description line (Retail, OEM, or Volume), and the License Status. If your copy of Windows is not activated, refer to Knowledge Base article 950929 for more information. If you have a Volume License copy, it does not qualify for the free upgrade.

•If your edition is Windows 7 Enterprise, this PC is not eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade, because it is a Volume License edition intended for business use
•If your version is Windows RT or Windows 8.1 RT, this device is not eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade.
•If Service Pack 1 is not listed, you need to install it before you will get the upgrade icon
•If your version is Windows 8, you need to do the free update to Windows 8.1 to be eligible for the Windows 10 upgrade. Instructions for upgrading to Windows 8.1 can be found at: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... -windows-8
After updating to 8.1, you will also need to install this update: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... indows-8-1
