    For the intel LAN drivers, manually install them via device manager and everything works fine. That's what I did with my ASUS Rampage V Extreme's onboard nic.

    Edit: Add CPU-Z to the list of apps not working :p

    Because apparently Vista+ doesn't actually ship with legacy (legacy being DX9 and lower) DirectX components. Some things may work, but anything relying on non-included dlls will fail.

    At the very least, I noticed GPU-Z would complain of a missing DirectX dll for the PCI-E bandwidth stress thing until I installed the redist on 8.1; not sure what the case is on 10 TP, but I installed the redist anyway.

    NOT working (for now): VirtualBox 4.3.16 running on a W10 HOST (not to be confused with running W10 as a guest with a VirtualBox installed on 8.1--that works fine).

    What happens: any VM throws an almost immediate error "Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully."

    I've uninstalled/reinstalled it and rebooted. Autoruns shows that the Oracle drivers are there....

    Certain games require certain DX runtimes, so that's probably why.

    Ok, that clears it up. I always assumed any given version of DirectX included everything prior.

    BlueStacks didn't survive the upgrade. Will try uninstall and reinstall.

    NVidia GeForce 344.11 64-bit control panel won't open on my system, the taskbar icon is there but the control panel windows won't display. Maybe because I have 2 x 780 ?
