I don't think you posted this at the right spot.

Beside that - did it use to work before the update?

I never tried, the last update before the current one was from 2012, which did not have native support for WinX. Being an Insider Preview user, I've been on WinX for over 1.5 years, including pre-releases, so I have not used BC in a while.

In fact, I had started using the fork called BC2, but when I saw you had updated BC with WinX support plus edge support, I gave it a shot again.

BC has Edge listed, and a path there, but when I click the icon nothing actually loads.

Ohh! I didn't know there had been a new release.

I am the author of BC2 and thought you had posted this here by accident.

To the author of this BC: you cannot start Edge by calling it's exe directly. You need to call explorer.exe with an argument of 'microsoft-edge:'.
