Windows 10 – “Recommended” Update enables Get Win 10 capabilities

Wow.  Thank you Mike Danseglio.  Found another element necessary to acquire the Get Windows 10 tool.

Hopefully you accepted and installed the new GWXUX.exe module that enables additional capabilities for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8 updates when it was released during May 2015.  If not, you will not be receiving the Get Windows 10 icon.

Check out kb3035583 “Update Enables Additional capabilities for Windows Update Notifications in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1.


As suggested by Windows 10 promotions, the Get Win 10 offer supports only the operating systems listing with the kb3035583 article.

I checked my Windows Updates.  The correct update is now present.

Still no Get Win 10 icon on my Windows 7 Ultimate Desktop.

Though I confirmed that this is a critical element by assuring this Update is present in my virtual test environment.  As soon as the update was installed, and a reboot of the OS affected, the Get Windows 10 icon appeared on my taskbar.

I suspect the lack of Get Windows 10 appearance is due to the slightly older hardware on my desktop.  (I encountered two update error messages related to the NVIDIA video card during the multiple cycles of Windows Update.)  My next quest is looking for a method to determine hardware compatibility before 7/29/2015.

I hope to see you in the classroom, or online!
