    As stated in Title, I do request people having these older Windows 10 Builds 9901/9888/9879 (x86+x64) to share the Calc.exe and Calc.exe.mui files from the install.wim Windows\System32 and Windows\System32\en-US folder.

    The old calculator is so much better and full of features. The new calculator is crap. Thank you!

    That's simply true!

    Most of the peoples today never seen an Abacus and for sure not in action. I know an Math Professor from an Bangkok University who's using the Abacus only and that much much faster than any other person I ever seen using an todays digital or computer calculator! Also in Bangkok's China Town, those Abacus'es could be seen often in use, special by older peoples.
    What many, who use to know an Abacus, didn't know is that there although and kind scientific Abacus exist too!!

    It's still an very useful tool and should be introduced to students at all ages!

    i really wonder if their mission is to destroy everything that works just fine and replace it with sluggish crap for dumb users.
    i dont want to wait 5 seconds before i can use the calculator.
    i hit the win key, type calc, enter, and start calculating immediately

    I don't have Windows 10 running right now, but when I checked out the new calculator (which isn't actually new, it's there since Windows 8.1) it didn't seem to lack any of the features of the old one, you can still change modes to get more functionality, you still got unit conversion and date calculation as far as I remember. Therefore, I'm curious what exactly is missing, functionality-wise?

    The other question is: If you like to have the old one, why would you care what version/build of Windows it comes from? I don't think there have been any fundamental changes to it since Windows 7, and it's very likely that they didn't even change a single line of code for it between 8, 8.1, and the last 10 build where it was still included. It's old, it's done and bug-free, the only thing changing from release to release maybe the version information of the executable. So why don't just take it from 8/8.1?

    No reason to care.
    The apps' code was not changed.
    I feel like the OP is under the NIH effect.
    The calc.exe i packed comes with complete set of MUIs, so you will get it in your native language. In case of "newer" bits, you will not get MUIs other than en-US. There is no single other difference between them.:beee:

    I know there's no difference b/w the old classic calculator and the new metro calculator app, but the only reason i was searching for the old one was to include it with my MSMG ToolKit which provides the option to add windows legacy features like Sidebar, Windows 7 games, DirectX 9.0c etc.. to the Windows Install image.

    Some people don't like the whole metro concept and so they do remove all metro stuffs which is one of the features of my ToolKit and so for them the old classic Windows Calculator is needed.

    The pack u provided does contains MUI's and in the newer builds inside the install.wim wim images there's no calc.exe.mui for even english language but when the os is installed and checked then there will be a calc.exe.mui in Windows\system32\en-US folder. so my guess was it would be the same for rest of the languages when installed.

    Let's see if that's removed in future build then i will use the one from the Windows 8.1
