Bring back some of the games. It was a good way to break things up and practice.

Will any future update not require the installation of QuickTime? I haven't use QuickTime in years.

We require this component for audio and video playback. I can't give you an answer on when this will be changed , but its one for the suggestions book for now.

The conversion to the Windows Media format would be interesting to see as Windows already has these components but licensing fees might be expensive.

I dont have time to past how many times the install fails.

SO EVERYONE USING WINDOWS 10 RIGS MAY NEED TO REFUND

But, I only have 20 years PC experience, and build gaming rigs, ... what would I know.

EDIT
Oh yeah: 50+Gb of SSD space is too small for the 40mb file.
"Run as" `W7/8` does squat.

I've acknowledged your thread I also have the program on Windows 10 and it's working as intended

Maybe we are using different versions of Windows 10.

Its just frustrating to install a simple program. We would have assumed this would have been a lot easier to do.

We will probably quit to refund.
This software reminds me of childhood. My parents had bought it in floppy disk and I simply loved playing Mavis Beacon - I used to play it all the time. In turn, I bought it this week for my children so they'd learn typing in an entertaining way and I was so excited to show them the games, but then I couldn't find any game at all. Only text and text and text. What a great disappointment. They are not excited at all to play Mavis Beacon. I felt like I just threw my money away. I will check the possibility of cancelling the purchase and request refund.
Thanks for trying our product. For this edition ,we used another developer which had a proven success based approach to typing and was used by schools. So there were no typing games in this version.
