I bought a new laptop with Windows 10 in S mode. As I understand it, I will have to get out of S mode to download and install FrameMaker 2019. However, I also understand that I will have to upgrade Windows 10 to 64-bit before installing. Has anybody had this experience? If so, any pointers would be helpful. Also, did FrameMaker 2019 run well after you installed it?

 

Thanks,

Allen

There's a 32 bit version of FM 2019 you know. You still should install it as an Admin.

Thanks but I am currently running the 64-bit app and the people I work for are too.

For those that hadn't heard of Windows 10 "S mode", apparently originally "Windows 10S", it's an Apple-like walled garden mode:

  • only allows installs from the MS Windows App Store
  • locks you into Edge browser
  • locks you into Bing as default search engine
  • has other restrictions as well

Since FM is presumably not on the App Store, S Mode has to be disabled to install it, and apparently, once disabled, cannot be re-enabled.

This is all a separate matter from 32- and 64-bit issues. Unless I'm mistaken, FM/32 can run on either Win10/32 or Win10/64, but FM/64 can only run on Win10/64 (and this would apply to any app/64).
