As it has been observed many of the users aren’t getting the WINDOWS 10 UPGRADE APP. So, here is a quick how to het it.
Just follow the following methods :-
- Open the Notepad
- Copy the following text and paste into the notepad.
REG QUERY "HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlagsUpgradeExperienceIndicators" /v UpgEx | findstr UpgEx
if "%errorlevel%" == "0" GOTO RunGWX
reg add "HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlagsAppraiser" /v UtcOnetimeSend /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
schtasks /run /TN "MicrosoftWindowsApplication ExperienceMicrosoft Compatibility Appraiser"
schtasks /query /TN "MicrosoftWindowsApplication ExperienceMicrosoft Compatibility Appraiser"
schtasks /query /TN "MicrosoftWindowsApplication ExperienceMicrosoft Compatibility Appraiser" | findstr Ready
if NOT "%errorlevel%" == "0" ping localhost >nul &goto :CompatCheckRunning
schtasks /run /TN "MicrosoftWindowsSetupgwxrefreshgwxconfig"
3. Save it as ‘ReserveWindows10.cmd’ to a directory called temp or whatever you like in C drive. Update: You can download the script file from here.
- Run the file by opening command prompt as administrator
- Once your PC is compatible, you’ll see success message at the end and a schedule task will start to open the app (check the screenshot below).
UPDATE: Those who found the script running for a long time or stuck in a loop, download and run this file.
UPDATE: Updated the script above. According to Microsoft, “The Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser can take 10 – 30 minutes to run, during which the script will continuously provide status reports that it is running. Please be patient.
If the script is failing in an infinite loop, then you don’t have the necessary prerequisite Windows Updates. Besides requiring Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 Update, you must also have installed:
For Windows 7 SP1:
For Windows 8.1 Update:
You can manually check if you have these updates within your elevated command prompt by typing the command:
dism /online /get-packages | findstr 3035583
(Replace the KB number with whichever update you are looking for.) If you have the update installed, this command will show the package identity. For example, Windows 8.1 users should see this:
C:>dism /online /get-packages | findstr 3035583
Package Identity : Package_for_KB3035583~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~18.104.22.168
If the above method doesn’t work for you, try the below one.
- Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Schedule Tasks
- Task scheduler library > Microsoft > Windows > Setup >
GWXTriggers , select ‘refreshgwxconfig-B’ and run it.

Have you reserved your Windows 7/8.1 PC for the Windows 10 upgrade?
UPDATE July 29, 2015 RESERVED, WHAT NEXT
If you’ve successfully reserved your PC for Windows 10 upgrade, know this: Microsoft has pushed Windows 10 downloading to reserved systems. Check below links or this site Home page for latest information on what’s happening.
Using the Media Creation Tool released by Microsoft for windows 10 (check the below link), you can able to quickly upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8.1 — trust me this is downloading the OS quicker than the Windows Update– (internet connection is required) or download the ISO file. If your Windows 10 downloading taking lot of time (check $Windows.~BT Folder. in reserved system drive, it should be around 6 GB), then use tool to upgrade to Windows 10.
