    Hello there!

    I'd like to make a few screenshots of the Get Windows 10 upgrade campaign from Microsoft, with Windows 7 and then Windows 8.1 in French.

    So I just made a clean install of Windows 7 Pro SP1 in VMware Workstation 11, activated it, and updated it with Windows Update (which took hours and a few reboots).

    But after a few hours running and other reboots, I still have no prompt. Is it because it's running in VMware? Is there a way to bypass this?

    Thanks! :)
