    the operating system first, obvisously
    then drivers
    then apps.

    because....

    OS is the first because everything else needs this....
    drivers to get all the hardware working
    and then the apps, which needs the drivers.

    I just wondered if there were any particular order for e.g. the apps - do any of them write to the same files/conflict with anything/refer to anything that would create a best order.

    If not - fair enough - it's just that everything else about HCPC seems to be very picky!
