    It had to happen sooner or later... I'm running Windows 10 on a separate HD from my trusty Win7 setup. This is not an upgraded setup, it's a new, clean install for evaluating the new OS. Yesterday I got CFS3 installed from scratch on my Windows 10 hard drive and the installation went smoothly. BUT... CFS3 won't run in Windows 10. It doesn't seem to know how to look for the CD to authenticate the install each time it runs. FS9 users have reported the same problem with their CDs. :banghead: The answer is well known to many of us, and it's the no-CD patched version: CFS3 starts and runs with that every time. I don't see any reason ETO, MAW and the rest shouldn't also work that way. As many of us also know, discussion of this patch on SOH is barred as a longstanding policy. Please...

    Hi Mitch, No, I got sucked into ETO, and forgot to finish this. OOOPPS! I am doing a BOB expansion set right now, and as soon as I finish this I will touch up the AVG missions and get them out. Heck, I will have to re-fly all of this and check the reports from my testers (The Hobbit Hole gang) I was planning to delicate these to Talon when released. :engel016: Thanks for reminding me. :applause: :applause: :applause:

    I was raised in a world where personnel privacy , and freedoms were of paramount importance. I realize that maybe out of step for today's thinking. As my Grandmother used to say "If more kelp their noses out of others lives, we all would be better off" That includes any government or businesses too. If MS is going to gather information on my life, then sell it, I think I should get the profit from this, not them. Big Brother, isn't welcomed. No one, or government or Business has a right (in my beliefs) to "watch over me"

    I do assume this, just as I assume my password login on this machine keeps my kids at bay for the moment. It would also surprise me to learn the "spy" features mean the average MS flunkey knows all about me, especially what's hidden behind the garden shed. Oops, that's torn it...

    How fascinating, and how dense can the journos get (answer: very). I've just installed the thing on a separate HD and options to turn off all these "spy" features are presented at installation. Why would I want to leave them on??
