do not own a copy of Windows 10 Pro. I simply upgraded my Windows 7 Pro copy to Windows 10 so I have nothing to install from.
if you signed in with your microsoft account it will have a digital licence in your microsoft account (look online) linked back to your pc (check it in the 'about' section in the settings app) - means if you reinstall you keep your licence

(PS - not wavelab ? best posting this in the proper forum)

Alternatively you could try this link to create media for installing Windows 10.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softwar ... /windows10

FYI I actually upgraded from a Windows 7 system with no issues... but that was some time ago.

I wouldn't recommend upgrading to W10 2004 right now, in my opinion best to hold off until the last moment for that.

Take a run through this:

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-do-c ... windows-10

Pay specific attention to the section on the Media Creation Tool OR Rufus - either will handle all the tasks to either get you a USB of the latest files Or an ISO file (My preference) directly from Microsoft.

And ensure that your machine is correct activated (assuming its all good since you updated overtop of Windows 7). Since you are installing to the same machine - a clean Win 10 install will activate automatically.

Let us know how it goes if/when you get around to it.

Only thing that i've noticed since the Windows 10 updated is that i lost one of my favorite plugins. The URS Saturation plugin. It is a 32bit plugin, but i had it bridged with jbridge. Tried re-installing. Install worked ok in Windows, but the plugin wants to install its own iLOK driver in DOS. The computer crashes at the DELL logo at bootup everytime. Then i have to go through the repair computer routine. Bummer. i already have the latest iLOK driver installed. But the plugin does not recognize this. Totally baffled. One of my best plugins. If anyone has experienced this also, it would be highly appreciated to know if and how you got the plugin to install. The people at URS are not good at giving help. The plugin worked fine until the Windows update. Also, i cannot rollback to the prior Windows 10 Pro version, because i also installed a new SSD. Thanks all.

One of the problems I am having after the latest update is that my Dymo label printers no longer are recognized and I cannot print to them. (maybe something in the USB drivers???) Also my computer seems to not like my external hard drive that I use for archiving and I have to unplug it for the computer to boot sometimes (but not all the time) . A couple of plugins also do not seem to be happy with the latest windows update and either open very slowly or freeze. I have a really big transfer project in house right now so I cannot do a fresh windows 10 install but I guess it is time when I have the time. Thanks for all the help!!!

FWIW in my opinion a fresh install may not provide a solution to the problems you describe. In other words, the external drive and the plugin you mention may simply no longer be compatible and need to be updated or have updated drivers installed, regardless of if you do a fresh W10 install or not. As you know, unfortunately software and hardware don't remain compatible forever while an OS is continually updated.

There was a nasty bug in the June 2020 cumulative update that botched a lot of printing. It cause my HP LaserJet print queue to simply hang everytime I try to print something. The fix is in this update:

Windows 10 v 1909
https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/hel ... -kb4567512

Windows 10 v 2004

https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/4567523

"Updates an issue that might prevent certain printers from printing, generate print errors, or cause apps and print spoolers to close unexpectedly. "

As soon as I applied this on my v1909 builds - my printers were fine.

Sure just turn off auto updates. Windows will still download the update but will not update itself until the user tells it to. See https://www.windowscentral.com/how-stop ... windows-10

Lots more info on the WWW. I know all this now, I did not know it a week ago. Bummer

Note that most of those methods are simply "delaying" updates - not disabling. And for Windows 10 v2004 - those panels and the controls available to the user has changed - some items that were quite handy for deferring updates are now gone. See here:

https://www.computerworld.com/article/3 ... ninfo.html

The only way that I have found to completely ensure a machine is never updated - like ever - is to set up WSUS (Windows Server Update Services) and manually manage each and every update that is ever released - including the big feature updates (like Win 10 v1909->v2004). Over here - I could literally run on a version of Windows 10 forever without ever applying an update. This setup is more for broad computer management where I want top ensure nothing slips in undetected.

Of course - you could also shut down the Windows Update service on the PC - but that will quickly become a battle between you and Microsoft. A workstation needs to get updates over it's serviceable lifespan - but I agree that the big "feature" updates should be treated differently.

Over here - when I am good and ready to move to a "big" feature update - I always do them manually - I never allow these big giant complete OS changeouts (like a v1909->v2004) to upgrade in place. There are too many weird scenarios that end causing pain later.

A fresh OS install has always served me well.
