    Thanks for this and all of your other points. On this one, maybe I am wrong about fileimage.dat. I was sure it was associated with CPM, but I honestly can't even recall why. At any rate, some combination of restarting the service and/or moving fileimage.dat worked for me. Thought I understood why, but maybe this somehow resets the key you mention.

    One minute. I think now that you mention it, I do move fileimage.dat and then uninstall CPM. Then I reinstall CPM and turn off the service, replace fileimage.dat, and restart the service. I really should take notes when I do these things. At any rate, gonna commit all your info to a notepad now, so thx again.

    @roger_m...is the 2.0 beta installer you use available someplace safe? I found it on some Russian or Latvian etc. download sites, but I don't want to install from an unknown site on a clean W10 installation. Can't seem to get .1.2.x to install on W10 Pro, even booting with the driver signatures unmonitored. CPM installer run as admin for W7 compatibility asks me to reboot and try again, which again fails...

    Thanks for this. Think the issue with CPM is that Comodo let the driver expire. Don't know why, but they punted CPM for some unknown reason. It really works though...

    @roger_m...apologies. Missed the link you posted in your first post. Thought it was code:

    Thanks. I'll try again tomorrow. At one point I had CPM installed in W10 but it wouldn't monitor and Windows didn't remove it fully. I'll try removing the key you mentioned and go through the entire process tomorrow to see if the installer will run then. Maybe that will stop the reboot from being requested.[/QUOTE]

    There will be an initial reboot required after installing CPM. But after rebooting, CPM will run, rather than prompting you to reboot again.

    Yes thanks. This message occurs before the installation. When the installer is first run , it loads right up until the installation dialog should show. Then it pops up the reboot message. That's why I plan to remove the key and try again. I think the key is there because CPM was on the PC previously. It never would record, so after setting all the executables to run in W7 mode with no luck, I decided to remove the program several months ago. Looks like a good bit of junk was left behind. Also going to move fileimage.dat (I think it's there) and see if that helps. Doesn't contain any installation data, since the program never monitoried anything, but maybe the installer doesn't like it there idk. Here is a short thread on that file btw:

    fileimage.dat - Help - CPM

    I have some things to try tomorrow. I think remnants from the previous installation could be causing the installation problem I am having.
