as you prob know ive been testing on W7. i found a W10 virtual machine here:

but it requires 4GB RAM just for the image. since i only have 4GB total on my
system the image wont load into virtualbox.

i can see about upgrading my system - but i wont bother if you are intent on
wiping your hands of this anyway

let me know - thanks
