I was always against doing Windows version updates in place. I may be changing my mind.

My friend had 4 Win 7 machines (1 Home, 3 Pro). Somehow he heard about Win7 support stopping so he decided to upgrade to 10 himself. I am normally his support guy. I had built the USB install media and was going to test on a ‘victim’ machine. He got impatient.

Updated an OLD Toshiba portable running 7 Home. No problems.
Updated an OLD Toshiba portable running 7 Pro. No problems.
Updated an OLD HP desktop running 7 Pro. No problems.
For some reason the update to a desktop 7 Pro system I built had problems. Download and expansion worked but the install flashed a message and quit. I found the expansion folder and found the setup.exe. Ran it and the process went like like the other 3.

I just don’t believe it.

After a stand alone backup of my machine I may try it, too. The difference is I use VS 2010 and SQL Server 2008. Concerned about that stuff still working.

Although I have the itch to build a new machine.

Don’t understand the SQL statement.
SQL needs to be installed using a Win10 compatibility mode, IIRC.
