Incompatibitily with Windows 10

:( I just udgraded to Win 10. Nothing that runs OpenGL is compatible. I guess they at don't like the competition with Direct X. Vegastrike will not run, and neither will Stellarium.

Then a lot of Windows blender users will not be happy at all as all it's GUI is OpenGL :wink: But it maybe that we just need to build our exe's with a newer version of visual studio.Those blender users and users of quite a few of the other commercial 3D modeling apps will be lobbying M$ about no OpenGL support as most of those apps have very heavy licence fees(thousand dollars/seat)most animation studios will not upgrade to 10 which defeats M$' marketing goals completely that is apart from the health care sector that still is using patched XP as most of their core apps don't work on Win 7 even so as I stated this could change with an update in the mean time you might check if there is more bad mouthing on Win 10 about this issue.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Last I checked, a few weeks ago, I was able to run Vega Strike on Windows 10... provided I run it with Administrator privileges, and in Win XP Compatibility Mode. ;-)

Can you run it now, @black hart?

The need to run it as admin is tied to Window's defender after all our configuration app is named vssetup so obviously an app installer :lol:
