After downloading the ISO from MS a few weeks back and using a
Win 7 key, it worked for me. I did the upgrade though, not a
clean install. Probably should have done a clean install.

far as I know, the free update IS still available, providing
you have a valid Win 7 key.
can download the Win10 package and use your Win7 key to
activate it. The only condition is that you get the same
version of Win10 as you have of Win7.
is how I recently got a Win10 machine with my Win7 key.

I could be wrong but I don't think the free upgrade to Win10
is available anymore. If not, I would suggest investing in new
or reconditioned hardware (including Win10) rather than
putting out over $100 for Win10 alone. You can get a
reconditioned I5 or I7 based computer, again, with Win10, for
a couple hundred dollars. Got my last one thru Walmart and
couldn't be happier. I upgraded it to a SSD and maxed the RAM
but wouldn't of had to do either.

Thanks for all the comments. Sounds
like a clean install would be the way to go. I will still
likely wait until I have no choice but move to Win 10.
When Dave says he is still holding on to Win 7 that sure
When I got the Flex Radio I set it up
using a computer that was built especially for the
system. It has always preformed excellently. It has
handled PowerSDR, DXLab, WSJT-X, N1MM all running at the
same time without issue. I do not use it for email and
other internet chores even though it is connected to my
in house network and the internet.
I guess for now I will follow the
advise "if it ain't broke don't fix it".
