Update: Apparently, the support agent provided incorrect information. Technology journalist, Ed Bott, ZDNET, confirmed with Microsoft, the free upgrade offer has indeed ended.

Procrastinators can breath a sigh of relief. A reply from a community forum participant, Martmcd, confirmed in a chat session with a Microsoft Answer Desk agent; the Windows 10 Free Upgrade Offer has been extended for 2 more weeks. The free upgrade launched on July 29, 2015, provides a full version Windows 10 upgrade for PC and devices running a qualifying, genuine, activated Windows 7 or Windows 8 license. The free upgrade was scheduled to last for one year. This week many users started scrambling at the last minute to grab the upgrade. Users who started the upgrade began hitting a widespread 99% hang using the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. Microsoft Forum Moderators reassured users who started the upgrade before the deadline, could contact chat support to get a reprieve.


Todays news gives users a little more breathing room to sort out whatever problems might be preventing successful upgrades. This should also give many users the chance to skip Windows 10 November Update and head straight to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update set for August 2.

Hey! @allheart55 (Cindy E)  I saw that and wondering about the Download Tool also. I'm really interested in the Update Now in my screen shot. I'm running W10 now. Does the Update Now have the new anniversary Update. I have a MCT flash. Is this a new tool with the Anniversary on it. If it is , then I need to create the new tool! I've heard that you may get the Anniversary Update and skip the first upgrade. Don't know if that's true and that's why I have all these questions.;)

Hoping @adacosta might have some answers! Thanks for your reply Cindy!

Here's a update. I had the MCT on a flash, but I created a new MCT flash and it looks different from the old. Wondering if it has the anniversary update on it.

Here's a screen shot of the new MCT flash! I should have used a new Flash, but I used the one that already had the MCT tool.

Anyone have any comments??

OK! Thanks for that! I think I'll wait for the update and then create a new MCT Tool. What are your thoughts on that? Do I need to create a new flash after the anniversary update is installed?

Thanks for your quick response @adacosta

I've tested the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor, available from that page, and I can confirm it works as expected, providing a digital license on a Windows 7 device that had not previously been upgraded. It does not include any requirement for proof that you are using assistive technology.
