    Hi guys,

    A friend of mine wanted to upgrade his Windows Vista laptop to Windows 10. However, Microsoft's free upgrade offer isn't available for Vista computers right? So he'd have to buy a new license?

    I've been a Windows pc insider and as a test machine I ran an old Vista pc. After build 10240 came out, I stopped the insider program on that pc and I got no licensing problems or anything. It is still getting updates, so I guess Microsoft didn't bother about that. My question is: is it still possible to upgrade my friend's laptop to Windows 10 using the Windows insider program? I still have a cd rom with Windows Technical Preview build 10130. If I install this on the laptop, will it still get updates to the most recent version without licensing problem?

    Yes.

    I ran the preview an old machine but never updated it once W10 was released. I upgraded via USB (not clean install) the other day and it says it's activated.
