[McIDAS #WZN-876254]: Windows 10 and McIDAS-X

Hi Kwan,

- are you implying that the problem would go away and then return?

  If yes, has this been reported by anyone else?

What are the symptoms?

No one that I know has run into unsolvable problems when upgrading Windows 8.x
to Windows 10.  Again, what are the symptoms you are seeing?

Hmm... I did not see that possibility mentioned anywhere on the net.

I am using McAfee on my Windows 7 laptop, and the upgrade to Windows 10 went
smoothly ** except for Windows 10 not supporting my Bluetooth adapter, and
my inability to uninstall all of the Bluetooth stuff so that I could try
a solution proposed in a post I found via a Google search **.

Like I said in my previous email, I am going to make another run at upgrading
to Windows 10 after I uninstall all Bluetooth support in Windows 10 and then
replace the WiFi and Bluetooth cards with a combined Wifi+Bluetooth adapter
(which, by the way, will also give me 802.11 a/c support in addition to 
b, g and n).
