I just downloaded microsoft's tool to create iso  to enable me to install windows 10 on user's computer. They currently have windows 7 pro.  Does anyone if this version is the Pro version?

Thank you.

The ISO has both Home and Pro. You can see that here:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

So you'll be able to upgrade the W7 Pro to W10 Pro (but note the caveat about the Enterprise edition). Regards, Joe

Thanks.  Since this is an upgrade it won't wipe my computer, correct.  Don't want any unexpected surprises.

I've done a number of such upgrades with no significant data loss.  On some systems the upgrade has failed.  Some of those reverted back to the original Windows version, others wouldn't boot.  They were fairly easily rolled back with a Win 10 installation disk.

I've had better luck (though it is less convenient) when I allow the installer to check for upgrades first.

Of course, you should always have a good backup of important data!

Updating to W10 should not wipe your computer and you should not lose files. But even Microsoft admits that it's possible, as they say in this article:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12386/windows-10-find-lost-files-after-update

Note, especially, the comment, "If you still can’t find your files, you may need to restore them from a backup."

I use W10 only in a sandbox, but if I were updating a production W7 machine to W10, I'd make a clone or image before doing it.

Yes, with respect to using the media creation tool for putting the ISO on a bootable USB or DVD.

Thank you, but to be fair, Joe correctly answered your question before my post and should get the points.  I just added another comment.

Go to bed. Don't worry about it now.

CPS,
Nice of you to make that comment — I appreciate it. I was busy writing my last post and missed the ending exchange. :)
