Windows 7: Missing dll files and Windows 10 upgrade

02 Aug 2015   #11

Windows 7 prof

Thanks again Gokay.

I did backup everything

I think I will go ahead with the installation of win10 over win7 even if dlls are missing, hoping for "success". I am probably not the only one in that situation.

Even if I have reserved my copy, I am still waiting for Win10 download from Microsoft.

After installing win 10 I will report back.

Bye for now.

It may have even downloaded already, unhide hidden files in folder options and check C for $Windows.~BT, if there is a setup.exe in it. Check the folder's size.

If not download with the tool -

dlls also dont have unique names. for lot's of dlls there are boatloads of different versions for different contexts.
