Question for The_Gear, or anyone else wgo may have an answer for me:
I am really confused right now, and the Windows 10 update is only a day or so away. I currently have Start8 1.5 installed on two desktops running Windows 8.1, and both will be upgraded to Windows10. I have already downloaded the new Start10 file, in order to eventually install on the PCs with the new Windows10 OS in place. Whenever I tried uninstalling Start8 using the native Windows "program uninstall" feature, I was warned that because Start8 was still running, I would be unable to proceed. I am not sure if finding and "stopping the service' would be enough to allow me to proceed. And, I can find no "uninstall" provision on the Start8 Menu box, (or anywhere else, for that matter) only a button to "deactivate license". Now, if I were to select "Deactivate license", would I THEN be prompted to uninstall Start8 in a sure & proper manner, so that I could cleanly install the newer Start10 AFTER I have upgraded these PCs to Windows10?? Thank you in advance, I really don't want to mess anything up here!
