Windows XP is still in use on a lot of computer systems for many valid reasons. However, it is now well and truly past the time to upgrade those systems!
Unfortunately, Windows 10 does not actually support any form of upgrade from Windows XP or Windows Vista. In fact, if you do try to run Windows 10 Setup from Windows XP, the following not a valid Win32 application error message will be displayed.
It is also not possible to perform an in-place upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, which means our only option is to start with an in-place upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista.
The starting point for our example Windows XP to Windows 10 in-place upgrade is Windows XP with Service Pack 3 plus Office Pro 2003 with Service Pack 3.
