    KB3021917

    Included in this month's second Tuesday Window's Updates is KB3021917.
    I find it hard to understand what it is for. Is it like the old Win 7 Upgrade Advisor--but this time for Win7 SP1 to Win 10?
    Any insight would be appreciated.

    From what I saw, it installs a performance monitor for testing Windows 10.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3021917
    This update performs diagnostics in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) in order to determine whether performance issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed.
    I'd just skip it unless you are testing Windows 10.

    I chose not to install that one. It also says..

    Telemetry is sent back to Microsoft for those computers that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP).
    I do not participate in that program. If they want to know what I think about Windows they can call me. I have a few specific thoughts on 8.1 that I'd like to pass along.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I have Win 10 32bit preview, running just fine on a old Dell Optilex 755 with 2 GB of ram. Oh , the SDD is a 240GB .

    But you didn't upgrade from Win7, right? Pretty sure the patch is for those upgrading from Win7 to Win10.

    Jum -

    Even when Microsoft does give you a clear answer, it may not be useful. See the link below:
