Windows 10: MagicDisc can't run?

    Biggie2k, you just might have to migrate from MagicDisc over to Daemon Tools Ultra in the long run. I have lost several programs that worked well for years and years, however, because of OS updates & changes, updates & changes in security/monitoring programs, tweaking here, tweaking there, changed the Environment for some programs -- that finally caused me to completely remove the old faithfuls and go onto new faithfuls. There are often forks in the road, and there will be more forks in the road -- you will take a tine out of 2 or 3 or 4 tines, which tine you choose carries consequences, sometimes good and sometimes not good.
    addendum: If a complete uninstall and reinstall does not fix the sudden problems -- then consider taking a different tine of the fork.

    To Slartybart:

    Alrighty, thanks again for the effort, I've got some new things to go read up on, thanks to your suggestions. When I click install on the inf file, it gives the following error:

    "Install Error
    The system cannot find the file specified."

    which looks to me like at least some progress! I'll PM you if someone manages to help me solve this.

    To RolandJS:

    I'm not sure you understood my help requests so far. I have the program in question working on one windows 10 pc, but windows is refusing to allow me to install it on another computer. The working version was installed onto computer A while it was running windows 8.1, and stayed in place during the windows 10 upgrade, whereas computer B was completely formatted and windows 10 was installed onto fresh clean drives. Now, when the installer is ran on computer B, windows blocks the installation and offers an alert saying,

    "This app can't run on this PC
    Magic ISO Maker/MagicDisc doesn't
    work on this version of windows. Learn
    More"

    I can replace the program just fine, no big problems transitioning, I just can't stand being told that the clearly possible, is impossible, and having windows dictate what I do or don't do with my computer. Any help bypassing Window's child-locks is very much appreciated!

    Guys, Gals, does Windows 10 allow un-signed drivers? I may not be using the best terminology here.
    I installed MagicDisc/ISO into my desktop running Windows 7, I had to permit my way past a warning that an important driver needed by MagicDisc is un-signed; and it appears MagicDisc/ISO and W7 get along fine. Is the un-signed MagicDisc driver clashing with Windows 10?

    Yes, but it is NOT advised for security reasons.

    Not sure if the Magicdisc driver being unsigned is the issue for Biggie2k , but it is a possibility.
    I don't know if you only have to turn it off to install, or if you have to leave it off.
    Now that I think about it, I think turning it off is a one time event - it reverts to on at next boot.
    Something to confirm !

    "...having windows dictate what I do or don't do with my computer. Any help bypassing Window's child-locks is very much appreciated!" -- Biggie2k
    I have not found real good ways of even bypassing the child-locks within my Windows 7, let alone Windows 10. I'll be watching this thread and learning right alongside of you.

    addendum: I had to Revo-remove MagicDisc/ISO -- during startup, it generated a Can'tDoThis error.

    Biggie2k!

    I think by following this post you can still use MagicDics and MagicIso on your Windows 10 computer.
    Try to do that and let me know if it works.
