Droberts34,

 

Creator 2010 will normally install and run happily under Windows 10. I have it running under the latest version of Windows 10 (Creators version 1703).

It looks as if your machine's innards have become tangled with remnants of an earlier installation. Did you have Creator 2010 working there under Windows 7??

 

Have you done a "Disk cleanup" since you upgraded from Windows 7?

 

There is some pretty powerful software available for cleaning up the hard drive, but one of the safest and easiest methods is the built-in Microsoft cleanup. The Windows 10 upgrade hides around 17 GiB of old files from your previous Windows on your hard drive in case you want to go back to your old Windows. It's worthwhile taking a couple of minutes to toss out that garbage and recover the space, and if we're lucky it might also clean out the remnants of Creator 2008.

 

To run the cleanup, open 'This PC' and right-click on your C: drive. Select Properties, then Disk Cleanup

 

In the resulting window click on Clean Up System Files

Your system will take a minute or two to check, and will then come back with a list of files it can get rid of. Run through the list, and you'll see some large categories which are well worth cleaning out. My screenshot doesn't show them because I cleaned that drive out already.

Tick all the checkboxes on the left - there's nothing you need to keep - and click OK. The system will labor away for several minutes and then come back to you a lot fitter.

 

Hopefully this will also get rid of the Creator 2008 tangle. If it doesn't there are other things we can do, so let me know how you go. In the meantime that cleaning you've done won't be wasted. It will help your computer and free up a lot of space.

 

Regards,

Brendon
