    The "Eraser6.2.0.2971-NoRuntimes.exe" doesn't work, luckily the "Eraser6.2.0.2970.exe" works just fine in Win10

    Simply open it with 7zip and choose either x86 or x64! I will admit that it was odd it required windows explorer to be closed (windows 10 x64)

    Can not install Eraser on Windows 10. When I clicked on Eraser6.2.0.2971-NoRuntimes.exe, some window just opens for a fraction of second, then closes, and nothing else happens.

    What is this 'NoRuntimes" crap? On 64-bit Windows 10, using either double-click to run the installer or right-click and "Run as Administrator" causes an "Extracting files" window to open for a split second then immediately close. Nothing extracts or installs. I had to download and install with the regular installer (well, I suppose it's 'regular' because it's not named 'NoRuntimes') of 6.2 and it installed fine. Of course you get the "A newer version of .NET is already installed" error, but simply close that window and the installation successfully completes. Are the developers even testing the installer against common, modern OS's? .
