Testing for Compatability with Windows 10.
Running the Windows 10 upgrade advisor will not only check your hardware compatibility with Windows 10.
The upgrade advisor will also check to see if your PC or Laptop, has any software, hardware or drivers. That is not compatible or may conflict with windows 10.
After all, it’s in the upgrade advisors best interests to ensure a stress-free, successful installation.
Once the upgrade advisor has finished doing its checks, it will provide you with a compatibility report.
The Compatability report will then advise you on any actions or suggestions to take to your PC or Laptop.
Usually, the report makes suggestions in regards to changes or updates to drivers or software.
If the upgrade advisor requires software changes, this is usually resolved by either updating or uninstalling software.
