    Hey WC, I'm on a Windows 7 pc right now ( an HP all in one), I have installed all the updates that came out to me and I've also set up windows updates to automatic. Windows 7 Service pack 1 is alrinstalled and my PC meets the minimum requirements to run Windows 10. But I have still not got the ' Get Windows 10' icon on the icon tray. Can anyone guide me?

    Are you sure you have done all the necessary updates for your PC? You need to make sure that your PC is fully updated or you won't get it. Check for updates manually. Install all important and optional updates. Also include updates from your PC brand

    Try running the script from https://www.dropbox.com/s/0u0au9xgy6..._full.zip?dl=0
    you do not need a dropbox account to download if you get the prompt just x out of the box and it should start downloading.
    Took a peek at the code and nothing harmful is included. Basically a nice package that expands on what I have seen elsewhere.

    Had a loaner laptop on my domain and removed it from active directory and was playing around with the get windows x app. I was having issues getting the gwx app to show in the taskbar as well and the script fixed it for me.

    I have the same issue.
    My custom built PC is experiencing the same problem.
    I have a tablet and my desktop PC linked to my Microsoft account.
    No Icon. Script says, everything is fine, updates are present every requirement is met. Icon not showing on Desktop PC and tablet.
    I even re-installed the updates to make sure everything is fine. My media-Center PC which has just a local account is only active when watching movies, got the icon. PC of my GF has the icon and is already reserved.

    I think it has something to do with the fact, that I enrolled as a Windows Insider, but I have found no confirmation that it has something to do with that.
    And if that is the "issue": How do I fix it? How do I download the official Windows 10 Update or how do I enroll for the new license?

    Kind regards,

    I'm also having that issue on my Dell Inspiron 1750 with 4gb of RAM. It was originally running Win 7 Pro 64 bit. I had upgraded it to 8.1 Pro 64 bit. I've done all the win 8.1 updates, so it's all current. But I still don't see that Win10 update icon in my system tray.

    Guys, How much free space do you have left in your C Drive?
    I was thinking that the minimum free Disk space requirement for win 10 is 20gb (16 gb for 32 bit) and my pc has just 12 gb free space in C drive. It could have something to do with it right?

    I have 304gb free on my Win8.1 laptop.

    I wonder if the fact that I have reserved a copy on my Surface Pro 3 be the issue? Machines are using the same login.

    I meant free space particularly in C Drive?

    Lack of hard drive space could very well be your issue. I would try running disk cleanup with the system option and remove what ever you can. Having a reserved copy on another system has no bearing. Microsoft has previously stated that you can upgrade as many devices as you have valid keys for on the same account. Besides that linking does not occur until you specifically hit the reserve button which at this stage you haven't gotten to yet.

    Yes. 304 of 451gb free on the C drive on my Dell 8.1 Pro laptop

    W7 user here with HP Pavilion DV7 laptop. When you install updates make sure you got all updates selected from important updates. By default not all of them are selected. If your Windows is pirated copy avoid KB971033 (also in important updates)

    I've installed all required and optional updates. I'm not running a pirated version.

    The gwx installation folder is in the system32 directory. Check your event viewer. Applications and services, Microsoft, Windows, gwx-ins and see if you have any errors. Make sure you are not joined to a domain and Windows update is set to automatic.

    Tnx. That did the trick. Installed that Win10 fix file in one of the YouTube videos. Much appreciated.

    The icon appeared this morning on both machines.
    My opinion still stands: The Windows Insider flag on my accounts must have gotten in the way of saving the copies properly and thus I could not get the app to show.
    Now the waiting game begins when I receive notification to upgrade.

    Tried the Win10 fix thing. It didn't work for me. Its not appearing on neither my laptop or windows tablet. Which begs the question if some of my settings are wrong. The app is there in system32 but just doesn't show up on the taskbar and doesn't run when I try to run it manually from the gwx folder

    I even lost the icon. I had it for some time and did reserve my upgrade as soon as I got it. Today I started my PC and it was gone. I have all updates installed but no upgrade folder yet and no networkload. Also no failed Updates in Windows Update, just the icon isn't there anymore.

    I am experiencing the same problem.
    But screw it I'm downloading ISOs and will simply install Windows 10 from there. I have just one last question. Will all of my data get erased if I install Windows 10 from a bootable device like a USB flash drive using the ISO provided by MSFT?
    Also Guide me on making backups.
