    I was planning to do all upgrade installs (installed 10 on 3 rigs), but all failed at some level. Upgrade itself worked, old app installations OK and so on, but then I got all kind of small annoyances.

    All three now fresh, clean installed, no issues.

    Hi there

    Some streaming apps won't work - SKY GO / NETFLIX etc. These seem to rely on SILVERLIGHT for some sort of DRM validation - the streaming app says Silverlight update required but the Silverlight page reports version is up to date.

    Here's an example for SKY GO (SKY TV on your computer etc over the Internet). (Sory Kari - but when you've seen a Finnish program on TV with Icelandic subtitles - almost ANYTHING ELSE to watch is better !!!!!) SKY GO works fine in W8.1 with VPN of course.

    Here's the W10 problem (running on a REAL machine not a VM).

    Netflix is working fine here, I can't test Sky Go as I've used up all my devices with the ipads.

    Hi there

    I'll try and uninstall both the NETFLIX and SKY GO apps plus clear out data and cache and have another go -- the problem with testing SKY GO is that I don't want to run out of computers - I've got TWO (one on a phone and one on a tablet) and one on another laptop -- you can only have 4 and 1 change per month so I have to test carefully.

    If that doesn't work I'll try a CLEAN W10 install - I did an update for this current install. X-64 version.

    BT sport though works just fine - same VPN.

    Did you try EMET installing it in compatibility mode?
    Running the installation in compatibility mode resulted in more errors in the application event logs:

    Hi there

    Silverlight UNINSTALL, re-boot and then re-logon to SKY GO worked fine. Prompt to install SILVERLIGHT - then worked OK NETFLIX also working again. (Same VPN as previous one).

    Note though SKY GO will re-register your computer again as a NEW DEVICE so be careful you don't exceed the device limit.

    It seems that the "Server not found..." error messages caused by DNS queries.

    Event ID 1014, DNS client events:

    Name resolution for the name wpad timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
    There are a ton of events with this ID in the system log. Is the "wpad" web proxy auto discovery service?

    I changed the proxy settings for Firefox from using system settings to no proxy, just in case...

    Has anybody tried SFC /SCANNOW?

    I have and it find problems and can't fix them.
    Is that because it's a Preview version?

    This is a fresh install; not a upgrade. (ISO)

    You can set the font in Command Prompt bold:
    Yeah right, that's how I always do it. But here it does not do anything for Lucida Console fonts.
