Really not sure why you are having so much trouble with this tbh, you cant download and directly install Windows 10 on the XP computer but you should be able to use the download for use on another computer option, is this the option that you have been selecting.

 

Tip

If using a computer and not a mobile phone, please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for us to reply to your last, edit your last post to include anything that you wish to add, this will ensure nothing gets overlooked which can sometimes happen if a thread has more than one page.

I don't know why I'm having so many problems with the downloaded Windows 10 programs but I think that I'll just buy the Windows 10 disk in a couple of weeks and hope for the best.  Thanks for all your help.  It was much appreciated.  I'll let you know how it works out.

Bit of a strange one this, good thing that it has only cost you your time and no financial outlay, if you can spare the time I would try the USB option again.

 

You are welcome and please do keep us posted  :thumbsup:

I downloaded Rufus 2.18 again and received the same error message:  Exception Processing Message c00000a3 Parameters 7c7df5f8 9cc8dcf8 737df5f8 737df58.  The thumb drive is in the USB port and shows up under My Computer.  In the event that Rufus did work, there's no Windows 10 .iso file to put on it.

Had no idea what that error meant so used Google, some suggestions at the link here

 

Have you checked in your downloads folder for the ISO.

I did a search for .iso on all drives and and the results produced 2 .iso files, neither one associated with Windows 10.  Trying to burn an .iso disk/thumb drive was worth a shot and I put a number of hours into it but I'm just going to wait a couple of weeks and buy a Windows 10 DVD. Thanks very much, though.  I'll let you know how it works with my hardware.
