I had to see if windows 10 was a thing and it was. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-iso Also, I have never had the sysinfo.ocx before so first, reinstall with another install (like this one then upgrade), second, if first didn't work try changing back to windows 7.

I'm assuming that it's the same thing people are frequently getting with mscomctl.ocx and recent versions of windows, it's a file that's not included in windows by default and won't be there unless you've installed other stuff that needs it, maybe steve could include it in the installer?
The process for adding the file is to :
1)  find a copy, try http://opendll.net/index.php?file-download=sysinfo.ocx&arch=32bit&version=6.0.81.69&dsc=SysInfo# then:
2) drop it into the appropriate system folder for your version of windows, on my pc it's in windows\syswow64 :
3) open a command prompt by typing cmd into the search box :
4) enter this: Regsvr32 /s c:\windows\syswow64\sysinfo.ocx 

You may have to run windows as an administrator for this to work, also you'll probably get the same problem with mscomctl.ocx , if so you'll find that here: http://www.opendll.net/index.php?file-download=mscomctl.ocx&arch=32bit&version=6.1.97.82&dsc=Windows-Common-Controls-ActiveX-Control-DLL
Good luck.

I'm thinking windows 10 hates visual basic.

Installing to Program Files (of whatever flavor) is usually a bad thing.

Try the non-wrapper install?

I tested my package on Windows 10 - it is working correctly.
