DVD add-on install failures (Just Flight and others?)

Recommended Posts

I tried to install the Just Flight Schweizer from DVD and it silently failed.

The prompt reply from Martin Wright at Just Flight was


"The install has obviously failed. And it always will on Windows 10 I'm afraid

Microsoft in their infinite wisdom have decided to block certain types of DRM in Windows 10
This has caused a large number of older games to stop working and blocked the use of certain types of protected disks
None of our disk product will install in Windows 10"
Not a big problem in this case as this was a cheap second-hand purchase, but looking at my bookshelf I'm glad I did an upgrade install!
I've got a few other DVDs to install - will report on success or failure.
Has anyone else seen this problem with DVDs?
EDIT: Searching the net it looks like Safedisc and Securom are the issue ... and probably wouldn't have worked in W7 either, though W7 can be 'fixed'.
