    I tried running this on a machine last night 3/3/2020. All it did was download the upgrade program. It never started the install. Do I need to remove the Antivirus before this will kick off on my next machine? That is the only thing I can think why it would not kick off.

    I ran this on a Windows 7 device and it worked great. I did remove Microsoft Security Essentials from the Windows 7 device prior to the upgrade. Security Essentials is not compatible with Windows 10 and can cause issues. The update worked on my machine and it did not have any AV on at the time of the upgrade.

    FYI - this only seems to work for Windows 7 Home or Professional versions.

    The Windows10Upgrade9252.exe that this procedure is based on will NOT run on Windows 7 Enterprise OS's.

    The EXE stops with a message:  Windows 10 will not run on this PC.  Here is why Windows 10 can't be installed:

    CPU: OK
    Memory: OK
    Disk space: OK
    ! Operating system:  Contact your system administrator to upgrade Windows Server or Enterprise editions.
