I Upgraded from windows 8.1 with Avast working to Windows 10 build 9879 and avast was working. Continuing to work until I upgraded to Build 9926 on January 21 2015. Was not watching as to exactly when it quit but functioned before installing(was running Avast 2015 at that time). Was too busy playing with Cortana to notice. It was only when I was looking how to write script files for Cortana that i noticed avast 2015 was disabled but still installed. So I tried to reinstall but all attempts failed.

There is a video showing someone installing avast 2015 on Build 9879, Search web "Avast 2015 on Windows 10 build 9879 ".

Also most of my previously installed programs unregistered at the same time, so I was extremely busy re registering them.

I hope the next Avast 2015 version will be fully compatible with Windows 10.

The current version of Avast is not compatible with the latest release of Windows 10. I had no problems on the previous build of Windows 10 and hence, was able to
produce the video.
Patience, I'm sure Avast will release a version that will eventually run on Windows 10.

I can confirm that Avast it's not even installing in Windows 10.

I'm getting:

"This program has compatibility issues" and won't let me install it. I tried to change compatibility with Windows 8 and Windows 7 but it's still won't let me install it.

First i'll start off with windows 10 is in preview, Microsoft indicates tat you should not be using it on a production system for these very reasons.

"Remember, trying out an early build like this can be risky. That's why we recommend that you don't install the preview on your primary home or business PC. Unexpected PC crashes could damage or even delete your files, so you should back up everything."

Second, anyone who is used to testing for microsoft knows that is incompatible with antimalware programs and usualy printer dirvers until tose vendors update ther software. They typically release their beta around the same time Microsoft does; but i have yet to see one for avast for windows 10.

Third, and finally the good news! Someone mentioned "Microsoft Security Essentials", In windows 8 and newer the virus engine for MSSE was integrated into windows defender. There is no need to install anything, your already protected. MD defender is the only antimalwere that works with these early builds of windows and should be sufficient enough given you're installing any and all security updates.

Sorry for the bumb, but just wanted to add:

It was a clean install directly retrieved from the Windows Tech site. I am running the Entreprise version, not the "normal". As it happens, Avast has been running smoothly ever since I "kindly" requested not to look at the false-positives. I didn't need to do any hacking or what so ever. On the entreprise version, it simply runs out of the box. The only bump I've had was the April update-release where I needed to reinstall Avast, but other than that (and the fact the reporting system seems to not work with the new firewall rules) it runs just fine.

I just installed the latest Windows 10 build (RTM) Prothen installed the Avast Pro and have had no problems with the latest Avast build (2015.10.3.2222).  Is working like it should, no problems so far

This latest build of AIS may work in Windows 10 but in Windows 7 it is far from being ready for prime time. With all of the issues one would think that Avast would have fixed it by now. This is an RC? It is working as if it is an Alpha.

Adding to old posts is really not of any value. April is ancient history when it comes to Windows 10 and Avast. :)
