  • Hi,

    I suppose:
    Firstly you need to resolve the issue (this window shows some errors during use).
    And then, need to upgrade to Windows 10, instead of Windows 8.1.

    You can upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10, still now.
    This free Windows 10 upgrade offer still works. Here's why -- and how to get it
    If you want to upgrade to Windows 8.1, purchase an installation disk of Windows 8.1 Pro and install it with Upgrade Installation (not Clean installation).
