But isn't an installer an .exe file?
With FreeBASIC I download FBIde.4.6r4-FreeBASIC0.23.exe installer. I then download the latest version of FreeBasic and install it in the same folder.
My current understanding is that anything created by a user account can only be modified by that user account or by the Administrator account. Probably that was my delete issue. Anyway I have some work to do learning how Windows 10 handles accounts.
I now have a clean install of window 10 so I can start again.
