eValid Installation on Windows 10

We have hesitated to upgrade Windows 8 and 8.1 installations to Windows 10, but recently we did a successfully update on Windows 8.1 system to Windows 10.

eValid installed normally and our basic "sanity checks" (a simple record and playback and miscellaneous other tasks) all appeared to run normally.

The only issue was with file permissions.

eValid needs to have full read-write permission to create a script and create log files that result from an eValid playback or site analysis run.

We had to provide "full control and modify" to the appropriate folders and after doing that everything was normal.

Our normal process for checking out a new platform is to perform these "sanity checks" and if they pass then to run the entire multi-day test suite.

We'll report on that later if any issues are found but we think that will be unlikely.
