Unexpected error - quitting
Occurs before the login screen appears.
The only issue with Windows 10 relates to the requirement to use the 'Run-As-Administrator' option when you are first running SPM/PHM on a workstation for the first time. The elevated privileges of the 'Run-As' option are required to allow files to be written into the Windows Registry.
If you get any errors when you do first try running SPM/PHM, exit out then start the SPM/PHM application again using the Run-As-Administrator option.

Delete the PROGRA file and SPM or PHM will start correctly
SPM/PHM on workstation is running slow but on server is fast
There are a number of things to check
