  1. My findings show that people can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free if they use assistive technologies. But Microsoft isn’t asking for proof or doing any checks if one is actually using assitive technologies on their computer. But even if one lied, I don’t know if you could still run this installer over Windows 10 build 10130 and essentially still make is a free upgrade past July 29th 2016. I’m willing to experiment just for the heck of it and to be of a help to those who have Windows XP/Vista and still wish to upgrade free. Hope this is of any help and looks like all Windows 7/8 users won’t have issues performing the installer from their website.

      1. Glad it still works! I’m glad that I could be a help in informing that there is no Windows 10 upgrade deadline yet for people needing assistive technologies. As I said before, the installer doesn’t check if any assistive technologies are being used. I was saying earlier that I was hoping this scenario would allow installation over Windows 10 beta build 10130. Thanks for taking the time to test it to see if such scenario would work and that it would activate. Microsoft can take down the Windows 10 free upgrade for assistive technologies any time but they would make a public announcement before they do so. In the mean time, people can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free after the deadline!
