comment Free Windows 10 Upgrade after One Year
@Ramhound If I just try to run it, rather than taking the option to save to media, it runs to what looks like completion and then crashes. (That's assuming I do it as admin. If I do it as a normal user, I get the now-famous "something happened something happened" dialog). I checked online for a solution to that crash. It is apparently common, and the suggested solution is to take the option to create install media instead. If I try that, it wants a key, and does not take my 8.0 install media key. I'm beginning to get the idea Microsoft doesn't really want me to have Win10...

comment Free Windows 10 Upgrade after One Year
@Ramhound Well, now its released, so how does one do that? I have downloaded it to a thumb drive from the Microsoft download site, and upon boot its asking for a 6x5 key, and will not take the one from my 8.0 install media. So where does one go to get this "license" you are insisting everyone can claim?

comment Free Windows 10 Upgrade after One Year
As an update to this, I just tried last night manually downloading the "upgrade" to a USB stick. On reboot it asked for a CD key, and did not accept the one from my Windows 8.0 install media.

comment Why don’t I have the Get Windows 10 icon?
FWIW: On my Win 8.1 64-bit system (licensed) I went through the accepted answer, it says I'm accepted, and still no icon. Perhaps it doesn't work now that the OS has been released?

@krb686 - Nope, no button in there either (of course the time to "reserve" is over now).

@MichaelHampton Must have been Win7. Windows 8.1 removed WEI

comment Qt's Plugin Path and WOW64
Note that my first crack at this used QT_QPA_PLATFORM_PLUGIN_PATH. This mostly worked, but caused some weird directory-sensitive startup crashes. I haven't had any trouble with QT_PLUGIN_PATH

comment How to start process without UAC
@uwe - Only when the service is first installed. If you can't get permission to do that either, then you have a human trust problem, not a computer problem.

comment Ideal desktop computer for productive software development
Is it just me, or is it kind of bad form to accept a question from another stack, then close it as off-topic?

comment Javascript FileSystemObject::CopyFolder error
@FrankThomas - Yeah, saw that bug, but it seemed harmless. Just tried it without the extra `\`, and the result appears to be the same.

comment Javascript FileSystemObject::CopyFolder error
@FrankThomas - Fair enough. Just tried it from a command shell I started with RClick -> Run as Administrator, and I get the same behavior.
