How to identify apps that are blocking upgrade to Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

We're running current branch SCCM and I've pulled a few Windows 7 machines as a test lab to be upgraded to Windows 10.

I've run through all the steps in the guide and set up the Upgrade Task Sequence. The upgrade shows up as available on the lab machines and I can begin the upgrade install, however the upgrade fails with error 0xC1900208 which indicates an incompatible app is blocking the upgrade. I have about 100 of these machines that need to be upgraded and I need to be able to identify the offending app(s) to make this work. Or I need some way to force the upgrade.

One odd thing, if I try to do an upgrade directly from a USB drive no complaints of incompatible apps surface and the upgrade goes smoothly.

Hi,
Has the OS to which you want to upgrade to, same language as the installed?

From en-us to en-gb for example will not work!

I figured it out. I entered our WIndows 10 product key in the Task Sequence for the upgrade. As soon as I cleared it out, the upgrade went off without a hitch.

Hi,

same question here.

How to handle in-place upgrade errors (Compatibility issues found (hard block):  0xC1900208 (3247440392)) ? How to automatize uninstall of incompatible apps? We have to migrate over 4k PC's.
