Windows 10 Accessibility Update not working

I have updated the OS completely but still no joy, I have a HP laptop with Win7 I bought from ebay, I cannot run the windows 10 update assistant, it fails saying a library DLL is missing :(

I am short sighted so need this asap :X https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade

The updater doesn't run in a vacuum. It needs a healthy underlying OS to upgrade. If you actually downloaded the update assistant from the URL you just posted and you are getting that error, I'm fairly certain it is because a DLL is missing from the win7 OS, *NOT* from the updater.

In other words, wipe that ebay machine and reinstall windows 7 before you upgrade. It doesn't sound like the machine is healthy and should not be trusted.

I get that, but I got the exact same machine from exact same seller both hosting HP win7 OEM standard built and the first worked fine. So I found it a bit weird. Hoping for a quick fix.

Windows update was all I could think of!

If this is a new machine (new to you at least) why not just wipe and reinstall win7?  That *is* a pretty quick fix, all things considered.

No its not really, a rebuild with all updates is a lot of work. I managed to just grab a windows 10 licence, gonna go that route.

What did you want to do with the assistant, if I may ask? Mount the setup ISO file and off you go.
