Comparability has never been a problem. N ot when updating to Windows 8 and not going to Windows 10.
(At the moment, Avast seems to be one casualty in the latest Win 10 version.  :'(  )

Ok thanks. For now, I will be looking into upgrading my Windows 7 laptop to Windows 10, because I am the only guy using my laptop and I know what's inside lol. I also used Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant and it only needs few minor things to sort out which I can do it myself. I am pretty sure when Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant comes out the results will be similar to the results for Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. I won't upgrade our Windows 7 desktop to Windows 10 as previously stated

Remember that the current Windows 10 is still early pre-release. Converting from Windows 8 or any other OS isn't the right thing to do.
I dual-boot Windows 8.1 as the main (default) OS and Windows 10 as a second choice during boot up. :)

I updated my VMWare Windows 10 today and the only issue is that its not fitting fullscreen completely, its fitting in from the height not
from the width, but its completely usable.

Installed some standard software but no AV on it and no issues.

It actually removes Avast during the update process.  :'(  Any attempt to install it afterwards brings the results I posted earlier.

has anybody testing Avast 2015 on the latest Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview build released today? (build: 9926)
The online installer which worked on the previous build apparently doesn't work on build 9926

bummer :(
Hopefully there will be an updated version that'll work for us again!

thanks for the info
