Upgrading Bitdefender after installing Windows 10

If you’re running one of the 2012, 2013, 2014 or 2015 versions of Bitdefender on your computer and you decide to upgrade your Operating System to Windows 10, you will be able to install the latest compatible Bitdefender product.

The applications installed on your previous Operating System are automatically migrated 3 hours after Windows 10 is installed on your system, provided that they are compatible.

NOTE: Should you decide you don’t want to wait this period of time, you can manually install the Bitdefender 2015 Windows 10 compatible version by accessing the upgrade.exe file from this location: C:\Program Files\Bitdefender\Bitdefender 2015.
