Windows 10 is here! For many organizations, the upgrade is free. Learn how to upgrade your systems.

If You Have Active Software Assurance, Use It to Get Your Free Upgrade

Windows 10 will be available for download through the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) on August 3, 2015. If you requested a Windows upgrade license through TechSoup after August 3, 2013, you have active Software Assurance for that license, and you'll be able to download the upgrade for free on that date. See our instructions for downloading software from the VLSC.

If you have active Software Assurance, it's important to upgrade through the VLSC rather than through Microsoft's other free upgrade routes. Why? Upgrading through the VLSC is the only way to get Windows 10 Enterprise and keep your Software Assurance benefits like access to e-learning courses. Even if you don't use the Enterprise edition currently, you'll keep your license rights to that edition if you want to upgrade from Pro to Enterprise later on.
