    My issue is somewhat different. I tried the Windows 10 download and the had the same problem. I went to Windows Updates to download KB3035583 and it says it's already installed. But I don't see it on the update list. I also have Windows 7 HomePremium SPk 1. Help.

    How to remove (or acquire) the Windows 10 free copy icon | InfoWorld

    So The instructions are simple. Run the cmd windows batch file as administrator. Then there is a disclaimer and if you wish to continue press enter. Then I pressed enter and then enter again. Then I pressed 1 to check, and then I press 2 to use "quick method #1". For me it worked after that. it put the app on the bottom right next to my network icon. after that i reserved windows 10.
    Again IT worked for me although I'm not so sure if it will work for you guys. The only required update for windows 10 I have is kb3035583.
    Thanks for your help guys.
    Thanks man, after hunting the whole internet and trying several methods, this batch file did it! I can finally see the notification icon on the tray

    I would recommend anyone who has KB3035583 installed to use this method (if not, follow below).
    Although there were some other problems that I first needed to fix. If anyone runs into the same problem can try this:

    1. To know whether you have KB3035583 update installed or not, go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > View Installed updates > Click "Name" to sort by name > Look for "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3035583)"

    2. If you don't have the update there, try searching for on Windows Update. If it fails to install every time you try (as it did in mine), do this:

    Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Right click "Windows Update" and click "Stop"

    3. Now, delete everything inside these folders:


    If you don't have Windows installed inside C:\ ,replace it with wherever it is.

    4. Now turn on Windows Update service again by going to:

    Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Right click "Windows Update" and click "Start"

    5. Try searching for updates in Windows Update and you should be able to download KB3035583 and other recommended files.

    6. Once done, download this file:

    7. Extract the file to desktop, and run it as administrator by right-clicking on it.

    8. You'll be offered with four options, try each of them sequentially until you get the Windows 10 mini icon on your system tray.

    Having tried in vain with every solution I could find about the Windows 10 reservation app not showing, I have now discovered that if you have your taskbar locked it will not show until you unlock it. So try try right-clicking over the taskbar and if "Lock the Taskbar" is ticked, imply un-tick it and the app may well then show up for you.

    Thank you. I already had the required updates for some time (KB3035583 & KB2976978) but I hadn't been able to get the Win10 App despite trying all the methods I could find online, until finally I found yours and decided to give it a try. This is what I did in case someone else want to try it:
    1. Uninstalled both updates and rebooted.
    2. Ran Windows Update and downloaded and installed KB2976978. WU didn't offer KB3035583.
    3. I followed your instructions to install KB3035583.
    4. Rebooted and the Win10 App finally showed up on the taskbar.
    Thank you again & regards.

    Try this method. It is so simplified that you can upgrade to the latest version Windows 10 in less than an hour. Just download the ISO from official microsoft website > copy content in ISO to externall flash drive minimum 4gb and install it by double clicking the setup.exe Rest the setup will guide you how to. Here is a complete guide on "How to upgrade to Windows 10 right away without waiting...." at nexusandme.com Cheers :)

    I'm one of those "crying" about it.
    We are on a domain. This update went from "Recommended" to "Important". The update installed with 3GB of "preinstallation" crap per machine on half of my systems. The drain on the resources was ridiculous and went on for 2 days before I finally figured out what the network slowness problem was. We have no intention of updating to Win 10 anytime soon, and certainly don't appreciate having this jammed down our throats and network.
    Yes, I know there is a GP object that can be set to stop the install, but we are on Server 8 R2 and have to go through channels to have our servers patched. Far too late to do anything about it.
