Windows 7 Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can not download the free version of windows 10 because "not an authentic version of windows 7". I did the validation process and it shows that my version of windows 7 is authentic. Saved to my clipboard. Help!

  • Carey, please change the link in your boilerplate - it currently goes to an outdated version of MGADiag which doesn't fully support Windows 7.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.

  • 1. Download the Microsoft Genuine Advantage diagnostic tool. Click Run, and then click Continue.

    The tool will scan your computer, and then provide a summary of your computer's settings and system details that will help the MGA support team understand the problem.

    To copy your results to the Clipboard, click Copy.

    2. Return to this post and Paste the results.  A MGA volunteer expert will analyze it and offer troubleshooting suggestions.  Thank you!
