Hi people of the Underverse...
Has anyone had any success in the installation of Freelancer in Windows 10 Home Edition uv11
I got a brand new shiny Rig the other day (AMD FX-6300 6 core processor, 3.5 GHZ,16 GB Ram,Nvidia GTX 950 GPU)
and of course it's got Win 10 Home Edition pre-installed... uv43
I have not installed anything "Freelancer" related yet...was wondering if anyone has had any success...
or is it a no-go period (seeing as how the game is ancient in the software world uv45)
Any and all help would be appreciated.

P.S- I fixed my "log in " problem......damn passwords...too many uv25
P.S.S- Sorry if i posted this in the wrong section...

Wow, nice system!

I'm sure some folks will chime in here about win10, but here are the basics...

Never install to default location, change it to something like c:/Freelancer
This avoids the permission problems that are inherent in the Program Files folder...

Also, install AND run EVERY program (like Mod Manager) as administrator (right click and choose 'run as administrator').

Once you install Mod Manager open it and uncheck the box in Options that says 'make modified files read-only'. Then close Mod Manger to save it.

Place the mod zip in the Mod Manger folder and double-click it. Unzip there. THen double click again and Mod Manger should take over and install it.

heres a good tip dont, get windows 64 bit, and install that lol lol

but seriouesly far as i no as dwn has saidd, change the default folder installations to say c:\games\<program or game>
and on the desktop when it creates the shourtcuts
right click each short cut say mod manager . and do properties, and goto Compatibility tab if it has one, the "Compatibility mode" option "!run this program in Compatibility mode for" say windows 7 or xp or 8 whatever, and also tick at the bottom "run this program as an adminstrator, it might be a little different on windwos 10 but thats some ideas,
hope it helps,

but i no alot of people have had major problems running games on 10 and they gone to 7 for example.
so if all else fails, and if money permits, get windows 7 64 bit which is best, and try that ,

hope it all helps
