    I'm having the same problem. I installed WMC 10.0.10134.0 and it won't run. I get the message, "This app can't run on your PC." Someone told me that the reason is that 10.0.10134.0 is for 64-bit computers, and the computer I installed it on is 32-bit. Can anyone tell me if that's true? If so, is someone going to create a version of 10.0.10134.0 that will run on 32-bit machines?

    The install will only work on 64-bit. If you're using a 32-bit computer (Windows), you're going to have issues.

    #1 If your w10 was a WMC before the w10 update you have to delete the files inside the folder C:\program data\microsoft ehome

    #2 try to start ehome as administrator

    #3 try to reimport the install.reg as administrator even if you did it as trusted installer

    #4 there is a thread sticky, why open a new one?

    #1 If your w10 was a WMC before the w10 update you have to delete the files inside the folder C:\program data\microsoft ehome

    Just did an uninstall and the "C:\program data\microsoft\ehome folder was removed, so don't think that was it.

    #2 try to start ehome as administrator

    ? start ehome? not sure what that means? Have run the WMC icon as asminstrator and Eshell.exe as ad, but does not help.

    #3 try to reimport the install.reg as administrator even if you did it as trusted installer

    How do you reimport? the install.reg?

    #4 there is a thread sticky, why open a new one?

    Sorry about that - not used to posting on forums. I did copy and paste my request onto the discussion about installing WMC on Windows 10.
