What to do about the 'Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC' error


Owners of some Windows 10 laptops and tablets are crashing into a worrying roadblock when they try to install the Windows 10 Creators Update. Windows Update initially says the notebooks are compatible with the upgrade, but fails to install it after downloading the setup files, instead displaying the following message: “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC. Uninstall this app now because it isn’t compatible with Windows 10.”

I get it--you can't use a bigger hammer to make new apps and OS updates fit "older" hardware, but good gosh, should Win10 upgraded (former Windows 8.x) 2-in-1 systems really be classified already obsolete for regular users who don't buy enough to depreciate 'em for business purposes? While MS may publish EOL schedules for their products, I can't think of ANY hardware mfr who tells customers UP FRONT that their investment can be expected to zero out at some given date, regardless whether it fails before then or operates perfectly for the duration.

That said, when the time DOES come for a new portable platform, I now know I won't waste time and effort choosing between a traditional laptop or some kind of convertible hybrid, regardless whose name is on the label.

When you consider how much of today's high-end Audio/Video gear, networking, and other Consumer Electronics run on embedded Linux systems, combined with the huge strides Linux has made to the User Interface on computing platforms of all ages, IMO a reasonable person just might conclude there's a better alternative to move onto.


Exactly. Linux has ran with zero problems on the box I had built in 2015. AMD 64 bit proc, 2 gig vid card, and 16 gigs of ram. SSD's provide the storage.

Windows is losing ground quickly to better systems for the consumer. And, Linux is FREE.
