Having been forced by MS to upgrade to W10 Creators version, Classic Shell has ceased to work. The last time I did this I rolled back to a previous version of W10 and all was well. However, MS hase forced an upgrade on me, and rather that roll back again I thought that I would do a clean install of Classic Shell Ver 4.3.1 in the hope that this will resolve the problem.

It seems that I cannot just install over the top, and in trying to use Apps and Features to unload my current version, I get an error that says 'Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file' and refers to a path 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe'. Sure enough, that path does not exist on my system, although the Classic Shell folder set does appear in 'C:\Program Files\Classic Shell'

Any suggestions on what I do now? The Control Panel seems to be confused about where the application is.

Please help - I really do not know what to do without Classic Shell

You can use the Classic Shell Utility ( ... tility.exe) to remove your existing version and reinstall the latest.

Links to some general topics:

Compare Start Menus

Read the Search box usage guide.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
