    Default OpenRails on Windows 10

    Hi all,

    After many years of faithful service my windows 7 machine is dying a slow death and I will be forced into using windows 10 in the near future.

    Installing MSTS and OR is a fairly simple process. What I am looking for is information on special considerations and issues when installing MSTS and OR on a windows 10 machine.

    I would appreciate any help.

    OR runs and installs fine on Win 10 (I reinstalled the latest version a couple of years ago).

    MSTS could be a different matter. Installation pretty much as per the instructions at steam4me for Win7/8, mainly don't install to any of the Program File areas. Also if installing from CD, Win 10 may not read Disc 2 due to MS blocking anything that uses Securom copy protection. Once installed, runs after a fashion but you must have a Nvidia graphics card and you will probably have to mess about with DPI settings on the launcher. In addition, if you're running to a UHD (4K) monitor that brings further issues again.

    Installing on Windows 10 is no different from installing on Windows 7, other than the Securom protection being blocked by Windows 10. But you can still copy all the MSTS files from both discs into one folder, and then run the installer from there. (Ignore the one file that gets overwritten in copying from the discs.)
