After taking a look at the code, it looks like there's a bug in 1.7.x of the program where it accidentally skips the $Windows.~WS folder if $Windows.~BT is not found.This bug will be fixed in the next version of the program (I've already updated the code), but in the mean time, you can work around the issue by browsing to the root of your system drive (usually C:\) and creating a new folder called $Windows.~BT.Known culprits: There are a bunch of different settings that can potentially trigger this field to indicate Yes, and they're both used and maintained by a variety of operating system components.There are a few known causes for getting this indication.They only exist on your computer if Windows has tried one or more methods of downloading the files to your PC.GWX Control Panel always (as far as I know) deletes the $Windows.~BT folder, but I have heard of some cases where it couldn't delete $Windows.~WS.New versions of GWX Control Panel often include improvements and fixes based on feedback I've gotten from users.
For the Are Windows 10 Upgrades Allowed field, you want to look for the section of the report under Upgrade Flags.
This is a result of various settings on your PC and the program's own internal rules/behaviors.
Trust me, though, if GWX Control Panel says the app is running, it is running.
Some new third party tool or Windows Update patch is altering the registry security settings on some peoples' computers in a way that prevents GWX Control Panel from writing the registry settings that protect you from Windows 10.
: This is happening because some unknown tool or service is changing the default registry security settings on some computers, but I have not yet figured out who the culprit is.
