    Oh I'm sure there'd be a lot of people that would be happy about that :)
    I haven't got win10 yet, so I guess you'd do the others a favor. The question is if the program's author would be okay with your translation, or if he wants to keep it Russion on purpose.

    have done 4 computer hope this help someone

    http://support.creative.com/kb/ShowArticle.aspx?sid=126331

    These are the Computer I have updated to Win 10 64 bit with Home or PRO.
    Acer R3700 Win 7 Home, Slate 3 pro WIN 8.1 Pro, and 2 Home builds with Asus Mother Boards ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA Win 7 Ultra and an Asus Maximum V Extreme WIN 8.1 Pro
    Out of the 4 so far the little Acer was the worst it keep getting Black Screen Of Death at 75% and at 84% .I fix the 75% BSOD by waiting at least 1 hour then unplugging it an then plug it back in to have it go to 84% and lock up to Black Screen Of Death one good thing when the load failed it always wend back and recover the old OS tried loading it more the 10 time with the MS download and the MediaCreationToolx64 and all I got was Black Screen Of Death. So I back up the Win 7 I had on it to another drive and used the MediaCreationToolx64 and told it not to save any file. This time it worked and once I got it load it seems to work good. (The edge browsers don’t work for Crap neither dose the mail so I loaded Firefox and thunderbird Mail). All together it took about 3 days to figure it out the.
    Slate Pro 3 I had to load 2 time had to go back to win 8.1 and reload. Win 10 would not activate the first time. It did on the second try it did work keep all my files.
    The ASUS P8Z77-M PRO took all day to load that did it 3 times to BSOD at 84%. Got that one loaded by doing a don’t save any file install that worked and it seems to work alright.
    Did the next computer Asus Maximum V Extreme. Witch it’s my Gaming rig 32 Meg of memory,GTX980 Classified NV video card , Sound blaster Z card and a i7-3770K CPU, this one went good only took 1 try using the MediaCreationToolx64 and it did work keeping all my files. Although it been 2 day now and I found I started having a Blue Screen OF Death with a DPC WatchDog Violation error and the computer
    Would not do a restart it would just lock up in the shut down and would not restart by itself. I found it to be a problem with some of my USB 3 and 2 stuff if I unplugged my USB things except for a Mouse and Keyboard it would reboot correctly soon as I plug a USB external hard drive or a Joystick in it would not restart. It started with the USB 3 first almost could not get it to reboot at all did a safety mode start and got it back to at least to booting normal but still had a lot of WatchDog error and BSOD.
    So I pulled all the USB stuff and uninstalled all the USB software and drivers and reloaded the MOBO USB drivers. And then reloaded all the USB hardware drivers and software. That has seemed to fix it no BSOD for a Day now.
    Some of the MFG. are out with Win 10 Drivers Sound Blaster Has the Z card and the Sound Blaster Recon3D PCIe Series and a couple of other drivers on their site go to page where the Windows® 10 - Software Availability Charts are the link to then are there . NV has got there’s out to but the 8.1 drivers seem to be working for everything I have Some of the setting would not work or the control panels would not come up in the sound cards but there working now with these new Win 10 drivers no problem yet .
    Don’t know if this will help anybody. This was almost 10 days to update 4 computers what a pain at lease the Gaming rig I did not have to reload any games they all seem to work steam seem to work Uplay works , Origin works it would have been longer if I had to reload Steam have about 45 game in it

    Do you need quick access to any of the applications there? If yes, then yes :)
