Installed Win 10 over 8.1 on a laptop.

 

Seemed to install well - but soon got error messages about missing MVSCR100.dll file. Outlook could not send emails - although, strangely it could send test message correctly - but nothing else.

 

Email links would not open in my default FF browser.

In the end, the broken email problem persuaded me to revert to 8.1.

Now everything is working perfectly again.

 

A shame, because it looked very nice and seemed to be quick

Thought I recognised that.

Google it Bankfodder - its been an issue since 64bit implementations of Windows

Thanks for this. I did that. Downloaded the 64bit version and it refused to install because there was a newer version already installed.

You may need to install the 32 bit version Bankfodder - that occurred repeatedly with 64 bit windows 7 and 32 bit apps needing 32 bit runtimes

(I Haven't touched Windows 10 yet and probably won't)

Well I'll wait until Win 10 is more mature and also I'll try it on a spare computer. At the moment I'm away and I'm depending completely on my laptop.

Probably a bit crazy to have tried it anyway before I got back.

lol - partition the lappy HDD if only one drive and dual boot - I do.

 

(to be accurate I multi-boot to separate HDD's in the laptop - which has 3 - it takes 2 and I replaced the DVD with another hdd)

I'll wait until I get back. I have a very solid PC there and I can install win 10 on a virtual drive and check it out

I always set up my installs on memory sticks, although I can drop my bluray back in if needed, but be aware that problems like that Bankfodder is experiencing has happened (and that one specifically) on all 'early release' versions of windows since vista and have often only been resolved by a clean install even when the releases have become 'stable'.

 

I test on my laptop rather than my main machine at home which is a server for a number of things.

 

I always test a clean install of a new OS on a separate partition/drive and migrate apps from my working installation to the new one. Saves the risk of migrating stuff I don't need or want, and usually doesn't end up being any more effort in the longer term - only issue is sometimes drivers which might work if an upgrade is performed, but I'd rather know if there are potential issues early.

You should be getting your copy of Windows 10 from here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

The download tool will automatically set up a usb boot stick, (or dvd), ready for you to upgrade over 8.1

 

Using the above link, you don't have to know the version.

 

You can save it to a stick or a dvd or better still, just click on 'update this computer now' and it will do everything automatically.

 

You can have it wipe everything and just install windows 10 or leave your files and program and install.

 

The best and most sensible way is to let it wipe all and do a nice clean install of just windows and when it is complete, make a recovery USB stick of the OS so should anything go wrong, you can just insert the stick and get back to the original state.

 

Remember it's only free for 12 months, so should anything go wrong after that time, then it's either purchase a copy or reinstall your older OS ie 7 or 8.

The issue of Outlook not sending e-mails is not entirly down to Win10. Open up an Admin CMD prompt and run

 

SFC /Scannow

 

Let it finish and the issue is resolved.

You are The Man!!!

 

Thank you very much. It was exactly the problem and exactly the solution.

 

There are other niggling error messages but as long as the email is working, I can live with it and try to nail the rest one-by-one.

 

I'll post up the other messages later and maybe you or others might come up with a solution.

 

What an amazing forum this is :-D:madgrin:

OK - two more error messages. They seem to be related because they both involve missing MSV??100.dll files

 

One of them relates to ColorUService.exe - missing MSVCP100.dll

 

The second relates to Cs6Servicemanager.exe - missing MSVCR100.dll

 

I don't know what coloruservice is but I'll google it in a minute.

 

CS6 must refer to adobe but as far as I can see, nothing is broken

I didn't. I don't leave photos and things of value on the computer, it's silly, the hard drive can go wrong at any time. I save my precious things to dvd and an external server class hard drive.

 

When I installed Windows 10, I did it as a completely fresh update wiping out everything so I have a computer that is how it would have left the factory. I then made a USB stick with an OS recovery, (all done my Windows 10, no need to know anything), so now should anything go wrong in future, I just recover from the usb stick and am back to square one.

Yes I had to reinstall my Office suite and set up my email again, but that's a small price to pay for a nice fresh and fast computer.

A lot of minor issues with Win10 can be resolved by opening device manager and updating all of the drivers once the install and updates are done. Once you have done all of this then you will need to reinstall some of the patches from your software suppliers or your hardware suppliers.

 

 

Then once you have done all of this go to system then clean up the C: drive to clear up all the nasty left over install, including system restore, the defrag the drive run update once more then once all is sweet as a nut then defrag your registry finally then and only then make your system recovery media for reinstall should you need it. The reason for this method will save you having to re-do all the extra hard-work you have already done...

Is yours a dongle or one of those MIFI devices

 

I have a 3 dongle and works fine, connect using the MIFI device and it keeps dropping to a limited service

 

Seems this is a known problem since windows 8

Well my second attempt at Windows 10 has resulted in huge wifi problems with connections dropping out all over the place. It is almost unusable - so it's back to Windows 8.1 again.

 

Anyone got any suggestions?

With Wi-Fi you will need a good enabled router and have it situated in the right place, this can be done by using a mobile as a guide to the best place to put your router. If you can it may pay your to get hold of a good quality Wi-Fi extender like the WNDA3200 or the Belkin alternative
