I've been running EPG Collector for years to insert EPG data into WMC and now EMBY, via NextPVR.
I took the plunge and updated to Windows 10 and the Collector still runs on schedule, BUT I cannot open EPG Centre to make changes.
Has anyone else experienced this behaviour?
Any help will be gratefully accepted.

Wow that was quick Steve
When I click on the EPG Centre, either form the Start or from the file in Explorer, absolutely nothing happens. I have tried all the Windows Compatibility options too, to no avail.
NOTE: That I only did the standard Windows upgrade from WIN 7 to 10, so that could be the problem.
I thought I would post here before starting a clean Windows 10 install.

Mine started today with no issues (W10 Pro).  I didn't have any compatibility settings set.  Im using a local account (not microsoft one).

Maybe try reinstalling EPGC first. You won't lose anything doing that (eg ini files, logs).

I've had another user report that it works OK on Win10.

Thanks Guys for your help. :)
I uninstalled it and re-installed and all working now.
On the way I learnt how to set up Local User Account and to switch between Local an M$ accounts.
EPG Centre/Collector is working in both now.
