Windows 10 Upgrade Error

Windows10Upgrade ErrorWindows10Upgrade Error 2CHi,
  I fresh installed Windows 7 from the scratch and applied all Win7 related updates.
  Then I proceeded to upgrade it to Windows 10, but I get this error. When I googled the error message, I found some articles about repairing C++ 2015. But I only see C++ 2005.
   I don't have any anti-virus software. Just about the only software that I have installed on this is Splashtop remote access program.

  Has anyone seen and fixed this error before?

Thanks.

Download the Update tool, Create ISO file and run it from Windows 7 as virtual CD:

You need Windows 7 with SP1 installed if you would like to get an upgrade to Win 10, or try installing Windows 10 from scratch using Win 7 installation key

SP1SP1 is already installed on this computer. I used the following site for Windows 10 free upgrade.

Read my post above. Download the tool https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10, create the ISO file and open it from Windows 7 using ISO reader http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/download/. You can run the update.

@Bocevski
The link that you provided above to create Windows 10 installation media (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10),
would I be able to upgrade Windows 7 OS to Windows 10 for free like I would be able to do via https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade ?

Yes, you need the media for the upgrade, because you said that upgrade failed. Sometimes the download takes long, and the file might be corrupted. With media, there are no issues

You can also run the installation from the media using the Windows 7 installation key

Assisted Technology Upgrade@Bocevski Nick
That worked very well. Thank you.

I used to use the same link until Free upgrade offer was supposed have expired sometime this past summer and I assumed that I could no longer receive free Windows 10 upgrade. That was the reason why I have been using Assisted technology webpage to do FREE upgrade. Even on this page, it says that free upgrade expires at the end of this year.

If you have Windows 7 OS, are you still eligible for FREE Windows 10 upgrade?

I am repeating myself again. Create the media install the windows 10 from scratch and use windows 7 install key for activation.

"Free upgrade offer was supposed have expired sometime this past summer and I assumed that I could no longer receive free Windows 10 upgrade" - to this day, Microsoft has not done anything to stop the well-known upgrade procedure from working. It would have been possible if they wanted to - but they haven't - why not use it?
