I am trying to install Mits. AL-PCS/WIN on windows 10, v2.7, but it goes to the install shield, see 99% progress bar, then everything disappears from desktop screen, nothing ?

 

go to programs, nothing is installed ?

 

please can anyone advise how AL-PCS/WIN is installed on windows 10 ?

 

thanks

Any old Windows soft is working under Windows 10 perfectly, while with old releases of Win10 the compatibility should be achieved manually. With  newer releases the old soft is running automatically. I have the last release of Win10 on my PC and have not a problem to run an old Mitsu/Beijer soft.

I have V2.70 running on my windows 10 also without any problems.

But If you do I would try to tun it in compatibility mode for windows 7

thanks for all replies, 

 

I will retry compatibility mode for win 7, pretty sure I tried all modes, including 95/98

 

if you look online, the specs I have seen, state it should run on windows 10

maybe there is something partially blocking install on my PC, I get the splash screen, the first progress bar, then everything disappears off screen, nothing...

Maybe run the setup.exe  as Administrator that sometimes helps

very odd, has now seemed to install ok,

 

I did set compatibility to win7, and run as admin, (although I sure I had already tried this yesterday)

strange thing is, I gave up from last try, everything disappeared again, then must have been at least 15 mins later, the next install progress screen popped up, and I was able to complete install....odd
