To install myServer 6 on Windows 10, follow the steps below
1) Ensure your hardware is supported by Windows 10. Most modern motherboards are supported.
2) Download Windows 10 HERE. We used the "Windows 10 Pro" desktop.
3) Follow the Windows installation instructions.
4) Windows should now be installed!
5) We open the default Edge browser and download Chrome. We follow the Chrome installation instructions and select for Chrome to be the default browser. We remove the Edge panel link (right click on the icon) and install Chrome as a link in the panel (right click on Google Chrome from the Apps list).
6) We install TeamViewer for remote management. Once installed, we launch it and go to TeamViewer options. We name the TV instance, and go to the Security tab and change the TV password. We also select for TV to launch on reboot.

Shut off or Turn On myServer Autostart on Windows launch:
Because myServer require elevated rights to run they cannot be started by placing a shortcut to the exe in the PCs startup folder. Instead, they get started as a Scheduled Task that runs on Windows Login. Go into the Control Panel / Admin Tools / Task Scheduler / Task Scheduler Library. You will see the task defined there that starts myServer on login. Delete that task. If you have already installed myServer you will see a task there for starting it too. Leave that one alone.
To start on windows launch...just create the task or reenable it if it's already there from initial installation.
In Windows Scheduled Task manager, create a new task for running an app on Windows startup. Here is the default path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Allonis\myServer6\myServer.exe" for the application to start.
The Windows compile of myServer 6 needs to manual steps for a software update. To do so, select and download the products you want and hit the install button. This will download to files to the Download folder and shut myServer down. A batch file will then expand the downloaded zip files and install to the correct directories. myServer will then launch.
