After installing W10 I wanted to use 'Computer Management' to change the disk drive allocations. This is easy to find in the Classic Shell, but somewhat obscure in the stand W10 start menu.
But just like with Classic Shell, renaming the executable solves the problem--and the programs install and run! I got the tip for CPU-Z from this thread, btw--tried it, and it worked fine.
It's nigh inexplicable why Microsoft would hardcode the OS not to run certain executables *by name*--but not *explain* it in a note somewhere? That's nuts, imo. Why would Microsoft not want me to run CPU-Z???? Since they are bringing back the start menu, Classic Shell is at least rationally understandable (to a point)--but CPU-Z? Bizarre.
I think that at this point in the testing MS is more interested in finding out what testers think of the new start menu rather than have them just use a tool like Classic Shell and then report back that it works. Well, of course it works but that's not the point of this testing. It's to check out the new start menu and to get feed back on how to change and adjust it for future builds.
I'm still betting that tools like Classic Shell will work fine in the final release of Win10.
CPU-Z issue is a bit bizarre..
