Thread: Windows 10 snafu / content thread

  1. #201
    Thanks Dave. I'll give that a try as soon as I get back on my 10 laptop. I am currently involved in finishing up my MB work on a campaign, but on my Win7 system. I'l give your suggestion a try in a day or 2 and give feedback.

    - Press the Windows key + R (Windows key between Ctrl and Alt).

    - Then, select Programs and Features.
    - Finally, click on Turn Windows Features on or off.
    - Find Legacy Components
    I just check and my Legacy Components tab was already enabled/turned on. Any other suggestions?

    Good morning,

    I was successfully able to upgrade my laptop to Windows 10 without trouble, and Mission Builder is working, so far.

    Question Reply...

    Good morning,

    Okay, not so much. While the program works okay, new saved mission files do not appear in the MISSIONS folder, however, they are accessible in Mission Builder. In other words, they are invisible. How to fix this?

    That's a newie on me Andrew. Sorry for sounding like a complete tyro, but is the Mission Builder you are using pointing to the ETO install. No possibility that it is linked to another install? ( just a wild speculation).

    Michael,

    It essentially boils down to the fact that I can't figure how to turn off write-protection.

    Ravenna,

    Update: I think I've got it. I had to go into the command prompt (making sure to select "run as administrator") and type in this: net user administrator /active:yes

    This enables the "secret" administrator mode in Windows 10.

    Now that is a useful piece of information.

    Are the mission files turning up now?

    Ravenna,

    Cleaning up some odds and ends; I'll let you know soon.

    Ravenna,

    Continuing to have issues as the folders are STILL listed as "read-only," so with administrator privileges, I have right-clicked on each folder, clicked on the security tab, and then "edit," and clicked on "full control." as the Creator Owner, and finally clicked "apply."

    We'll see how this goes...

    Ravenna,

    That didn't work either. I'm ending up having to run CFS2 under a separate login as a local administrator. At this point, it seems to work normally. But what a colossal pain in the arse.

    Rami,

    Are you having this problem with other Mission Builders/ installs?

    Ravenna,

    As long as I am in the Administrator logon, not a one. If I'm in my "normal" logon, every single bloody one is write-protected.

    Ravenna,

    Finally, success. The last step was to make sure to copy all of the start menu shortcuts from one account to another. I used this method, and it worked perfectly: https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/c...her-22289.html

    I'm officially back in business on my laptop.

    Just a thought, maybe if the programs are installed in C: drive and not in Program Files, things, and editing will work better.

    Impressed by the way you methodically worked through this.

    Ravenna,

    Being stubborn has its advantages.

    And yes, I am running it right now in administrator mode with no issues. When I upgrade my desktop, now I know how to slay this mother****ing dragon.

    Good morning,

    I have upgraded my desktop to Windows 10 without any issues; the learning curve from the laptop experience made it much easier, because I knew precisely what to do.

    Thanks Rami. My virgin Win10 stll won't load MB. I'll try your procedure when I talk to you on Skype.

    I tried Rami's solution of building my connection to cfs2 from an administrator log in, transferred the shortcuts from my old desktop to the new one. And lo... MB is now working!
