Darius, it sure does. The most obvious one is does in Win10 is kill explorer.exe so no user can bring up OS settings during interaction, but it also does other things like disable the screensaver and going to sleep after a period of inactivity.

I noticed that explorer stopped working. You should warn about those kind of things, though. I was worried a bit about that; was thinking that my machine's OS got messed up :)

And how about the other settings such as updates, cameras, microphones.

You know what else? Initially I had manually set my machines to not ask for passwords when booting-up. All was good, but at some point they all started showing me 2 available users and machines stopped logging-in saying that the password is incorrect. I think the system set my Windows acc user as primary instead the one I have set on the machine before. The password for that user was different and it could not log-in. To fix this in Windows user settings I needed to tell machine to use the user set on this device for logging-in then 'never request password' again at logging-in. Not sure if that was RV update or Windows that messed up this thing up for me :) Not a big deal, though.

2 users... I thought it was not you. I think it started happening after I updated the Windows.

Darius,

The CAP installer would not disable the keyboard, only the native Player installer for Windows and Linux. Are you saying that you installed the native Player on Win 10 and it did not disable the onscreen keyboard?

OK I am tired of all these abbreviation. I just downloaded RV installer from your site I thought it is now called RV CAP installer or something. Anyways, something I just downloaded foo your site did not kill on-screen keyboard. Again, maybe I activated it together with explorer after I ran the task.

Darius,

The CAP Player means the Chrome App Player. This is the player that all Development work is on hold for. This is the one you would install directly in Chrome.

When you download the installer from our Create a Display page , it is called either installer-win-64/32.exe, or installer-lnx-64.sh. Can I ask what page you downloaded that installer called RV CAP from?

Thanks!

Sorry for the confusion. I did not dawnload CP installer then. It was installer-win-32.exe
