MindManager and Windows 10

Windows 10 - MindManager 15 Installed

Windows 10 64 bit – MindManager 15 64 bit Installed

It worked for me!  For others there has been some pain but ultimately success (See below).

I did a clean install on a nice new 500gb SSD. My process was roughly this:

  • Install Windows 10 64 bit
  • Install Office 2013 64 bit
  • Install MindManager 15 64 bit
  • It worked.

Note: I didn’t deliberately run any updates but Windows may have done this. I didn’t install any other applications.

Then I installed Project and repaired MindManager to get it to interact with Project.

Hardware Tip

I have an HP2740p Tablet PC but the 250gb SSD 1.8″ micro-SATA had run out of space!  New micro-SATAs of larger capacity don’t seem to be available or cost several hundred pounds. But mSATA drives are available at better prices.

You can buy an adapter and install a mSATA drive. They are cheaper (physically smaller) and higher capacity. This is what I purchased online, prices include delivery:

  • Samsung 850 EVO MZ-M5E500BW – solid state drive – 500 GB – mSATA
    £150.17 inc VAT from www.ballicom.co.uk
  • Lycom ST-170m mSATA SSD to 1.8″ SATA Drive Converter
    £13.22 inc VAT from www.scan.co.uk

Used 250gb SSDs sell for £50-60 on eBay.
