    Upgrading Win 8.1 to Win 10 TP

    With the latest January release it is possible to upgrade via Windows Update. Tried this and it failed.

    Downloaded the ISO and ran setup.exe but got the following message in a box with the title "Something happened" and the message "setup has failed to initialize the working directory"

    Has anyone else come across this? Any suggestions / fixes?

    I get a continued failure on a tablet running Win8.1 Pro 32bit but that may be due to not enough space to upgrade. I'll be trying the ISO route tonight.

    I agree that the error messages are not exactly helpful.

      Setup did an in-place install from the ISO. No errors.

      Sorry, I wish i could be more help.

    If you're still here (or for anyone else), it's best you go here to ask your question:
