Title is the question... I've got a laptop that still hasn't received the Creators Update. It possible it has an incompatibility preventing it but I'm also unaware if the update has actually been rolled out to NZ yet? I manually installed the update on my machine 1-2 months ago with no problem.

My HTPC received it on Saturday night while I was watching the Lions test.

 

None of our other computers have received it yet.

few of my machines did it on their own, some took provocation, others I have not got around to yet.

I see,  I take it must be in circulation throughout NZ now then?  If so would this be from region to region or ISP to ISP? Maybe it's on the way our laptop soon...

Is it possible it's only just started circulating NZ?

Skip the wait with Microsoft's media creation tool if you wish.

I manually installed using the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant the weekend before it went live (it was available for manual updates just before it went into Windows Update). Had a Surface Book here that wasn't on Creators Update so manually pushed it too, last month.

Manually installed on my PC also, although I eventually went with a clean installation. Will wait a little longer on arriving for the laptop.

I have my laptop on the 'Release' ring. That pushes the software dl's much faster than otherwise. And the chances of a bug are far less.

Geography has nothing to do with it. The rollout is staggered

As others have pointed out you can run MCT or Upgrade Assistant to install it if you wish

It got pushed automatically to my desktop about 6 weeks ago.

 

The transition was fairly smooth, except for my always uninstalled Cisco VPN client.

Took the update overnight earlier this week. In the morning my PC couldn't boot and I had to reboot into recovery and roll it back.

Manually put it on my Surface pro 4 weeks ago. Just arrived yesterday on our old work laptop which I left to its own to do. Not sure if Hubby's PC has got it yet. Intend to check this morning.
