When Microsoft offered that free upgrade last year I jumped on it, now I have a problem. With the upgrade I lost my DVD player, I have used 3 different DVD programs but they were all trial versions.


Can anybody suggest a DVD program that will work with my old upgraded computer?


PS: Please don't suggest Corel WinDVD, it just expired.

The only thing I don't like is the stupid traffic cone icon.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VLC_media_player

Quote:
The VideoLan software originated as an academic project in 1996. ... The project name has been changed to VLC media player because there is no longer a client/server infrastructure. The cone icon used in VLC is a reference to the traffic cones collected by École Centrale's Networking Students' Association.

Quote:
One day, people from the VIA association (VIA is a students’ network association with many clubs … amongst those is VideoLAN.) came back drunk with a cone. They then began a cone collection (which is now quite impressive I must say). Some time later, the VideoLAN project began and they decided to use the cone as their logo.

An upgrade should keep all of your files and applications. Unless it wasn't compatible with Win10 and in that case it would tell you and prompt you on how to proceed.
