    Default Wrong operating system"

    I tried to start A5V11 today to start work on my friend's problem. I tried to create a database and was told "Alpha 5 is not licensed for this operating system. Contact Alpha ... for upgrade information."

    HUH? I have Windows 10. As I said before, I have used Alpha for more than 20 years always with licensed versions. What gives?

    Ah! Windows 10 crap.
    Right click on the Alpha .exe
    Run as Administrator.
    It should launch.
    If not, right click .exe. Run compatability check. Select last stable version Alpha ran under.
    V11 works on Win10, so does V10, V9
