As long you have not filled in any information to reserve to upgrade you won't be upgraded your computer will just be as it is ie win 7 win 8.


I've not signed up for an upgrade to Win 10, not even clicked the little advert for it on the task bar, however it appears to be already downloaded (my 120Gb ssd is showing 28Gb free instead of its normal 52Gb).

Also it is trying to install automatically as well.  Luckily it fails, however I have no way of stopping it as it does not appear in Windows Update except as a failed update.

John. Follow my suggestions about removing some kb updates. It will then stop trying. Mine has now.

Cheers

I've removed the KB's listed on the MS site and set updates to manual but it's made no difference.  Also it appears to be trying to install Win 10 Insider Preview rather than the released version.

On the plus side on SGL there's a useful thread about what astro software works (or not) with Win 10 so I may bite the bullet and go for the upgrade.

Well I thought I would try with windows 10 again as it's fully released so I put windows 10 pro onto an old laptop hard drive just to give it one last go as a lot of ppl was going on about how much better it is well am happy to inform that all the software I use for astro imaging works very well even my starshot guide scope so here is my list.

Ascom eqmod with Bluetooth
Cartes du ciel
Back yard eos
Canon eos utility
Deep sky stacker
Registax 6
PhD guiding 2.5.0 with starshot guide scope
Photo shop 6
Lightroom 5.6

All this is working for me will be doing more tests before I go the full way and start using it when going out. Hope this might help some ppl about it.

Here guys - not trying to hijack this thread but I'm looking for some free image processing software to mess around with the m45 exposures we ( Lorne and Wullie really ) took the other night. Any suggestions? Been looking on SGL and all they do is argue about what is the "best"

Andy, try 'Gimp',just google it. It does pretty much all photoshop does, I used it before it got a hooky copy of PS CS5.

Cool, just remember you have to stack the subs with deep sky stacker first. ......

First imaging session of the new season last night and with Windows 10 on the laptop.

Happy to report that everything that worked under Windows 7 works in Windows 10 - Stellarium, EQMOD, EQDIR, Astrotortilla, FocusMax, Moonlite electronic focuser, Maxim DL5 (required re-installation), PHD2, Artemis, EFW2 filter wheel, APT and all the Atik and QHY drivers worked fine.  Pixinsight and Photoshop both OK too.

Bit of a none event really (thankfully!) Don't want to appear smug just trying to reduce the fears of anyone contemplating it !!
