    You must copy the file to your desktop first, then "Run as administrator" from your desktop.

    Otherwise, it won't do anything like you're seeing now.
    Doh!

    Ok I got it now. Copied to desktop and run as administrator xml created now copy xml to usb and restart with dvd on drive to boot setup. 10-4?

    Just need to back up first, and write down apps installed, find install disks, lots to do...

    Great news bullfights.

    You might also create a restore point before each item in case you may need to do a system restore for a quick undo if you had issues.

    well better start again, same issues...I know this isn't the place to discuss, but video files (xxxx.ts) are not being thumb nailed, its just a blank file, clicking on it I should get file details but don't.

    That stinks. Do you know when it with south, or what may have been a cause?

    The article at Microsoft below doesn't show that the "Groove Music" app doesn't support .ts files. This would account for no thumbnail previews for these files.

    What file formats can I play with the Groove Music app on Windows 10? - Windows Help -

    I think that may depend on the version you are upgrading from or how the system protections are set up. When trying it out of a folder on one of the storage drives the xml file still showed up. For the recommendation however I keep two new desktop icons available.

    Starting a separate thread would be a good idea since you can also discuss the type of video files you are working with there.

    ok I am back up, with stock 10, no apps installed other than what 10 installed.

    I went thru a clean install, formatting the HD and I just checked to see of Windows is activated and it states yes, I didn't copy over the xml file, and just checked the genuine folder and its empty. Do I still need to copy the xml file over? I skipped adding the key during install
