Thanks again for your help. I was trying to open it from within the zip. I had to extract the .bat, then it allowed the choice to "runs as administrator".
This got the Microsoft Developer package only. Still not Project Spark. I guess I have a lot more reading to do, but not tonight. Also tried the link in the thread called "Download Project Spark" ... both as english and french, but got no link to Project Spark ... just some stuff I have no interest in. I'll read more in here some other day.
Once again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for all the effort you put into this.
