According to this ... st-1516276

The last official package won't work on Windows 10 - i.e it will blow up when applying a theme - for mainly two reasons:

- It internally uses WMI to retrieve the installed games, a feature that used to be provided by the games explorer on Windows 7 but that no longer exists on 10 (which sucks, because it was a very cool thing).
- It does platform detection to handle differences that exist between WMC for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Sadly, it doesn't recognize Windows 10 and crashes.

Luckily, it's a .NET application so it was very easy to patch it to make it work on Windows 10 (and trust me, I had to patch a bunch of bugs to make it work!).
