    My understanding is that W10 uses the same boot mechanism as W7 & 8, and it will, if left to its own devices, find and include the options to boot XP & W7 in its boot sequence. I don't think it...

    OK, I'll bite: typing C:\Program Files\utils\Boot\Grub4DOS takes a bit longer! and switching drives is even more 'effort'.

    I don't know about the updates, but my 2006-era AMD Athlon 64x2-3800 runs W10 fine. My concern before I installed the TP was whether the cpu had the required NX/XD capability, and once I found that...

    Its me again: I forgot that I found a rather nifty work-around, posted by 'try3' here (5th reply to a deleted question, it seems). It works superbly, the menu levels fly out, and you only have to...

    Like you, I prefer to sort my start menu to move the miscellaneous 'stuff' out of the way, so only the main exes are showing (I'm still on XP). W10 only allows this to a limited degree. There are...

    I know its a bit late, but if you copy them from the command line, and direct the output to a text file, you can see the order:

    Are you really using a batch file (and not a vba script)? Either way, we need to see the code to be able to help.

    I think you could call it a feature, but one which irritates, and is not well documented (at least, not by MS, AFAIK). In PP-2000 & 2003, you have to insert a 'package' using Insert>Object>package,...

    I think I know what this is about: "caudrangular" probably means "quadrangular", which is perfectly correct (four sided), but we would likely use "rectangular" to mean the angles are all 90. Goszto...

    You are never going to get good resolution on a standard DVD, to achieve HD (1080x1920) you will need to create a BluRay disc, which then won't play on the bog-standard DVD players you encounter.

    To see if my old hardware (Athlon 64 x2 3800, 2GB DDR2 ram) was up to it, I thought I'd try the TP, installed to a second hard drive, so as to not mess up my XP boot process. This was a mistake (the...
