I haven't Win 10 reserve icon

I read that with one of latest upodates, Win 7 should shows an icon to buy/reserve Windows 10.
I wonder why I haven't it. I have Win 7 x64 with latest updates.

Make sure that you have installed all the updates in Windows update.
Otherwise, I want to reserve my free copy of Windows 10, but I don?t see - Microsoft Community

I had this issue but the method mentioned above(link) solved it.

Do you resolved with the notepad fix? I made it, and closed the cmd window after a few seconds. Nothing happens. Maybe I had to keep the cmd window openfor more time?

Few seconds? That's not enough. I kept that window for 10 minutes because I thought it is producing an infinite loop. At that moment it is closed, GWX icon came in the taskbar and I was able to reserve windows.

Looking at that image you provided, I couldn't understand what it was written as I am not sure about language. But I noticed that you ran the command prompt without using Administrator mode.
Since you have already created ReserveWin10.cmd, try opening it directly or right click on it, run as administrator. See if that helps.

It's italian, as you can see from my profile. I ran cmd using administrator mode. If I try to directly run the fil in admin mode, it quickly opens and close the cmd window. I can't even what is written there

Have you tried it to open simply? I mean by not using run as administrator option. Just double click on that cmd you have created.


Make sure that you have installed the following updates.
KB3035583
KB2952664
To check for the installed updates, click Start and in search box, type "view installed updates" . There you can see a wide list of installed updates. If you the above mentioned updates as installed, then try to uninstall both and restart. And again install these updates via Windows update.

Now is even worse. It doesn't find anymore KB3035583. Finds only KB2952664 every time. Also if I install it, after a few seconds I have a notify to download it via windows update.
Imgur

EDIT: I installed 3035583 with loose installer. I tried the same with 2952664, but after I still have it in Windows Update Imgur

EDIT 2: Ok seems I resolved it. Now I have the reserve icon. Windows Update still KB2952664, but I don't care.

Mate, the issue of KB2952664 is a universal bug. Ignore it. That bug just started since yesterday's windows update.
Windows nagware patches KB 2952664 and KB 2976978 install repeatedly | InfoWorld
Windows updates are quite buggy these days. It is as if Microsoft guys are focussing on the development of Windows 10 rather than the stability of previous Windows. You are not alone!!

Glad you have solved it!
