Got it installed and running on a Windows 10 VM on my MacBook. Pretty 
interesting, but I haven't used MCP since '89 and seldom used the ODT 
(console) on A Series systems when I did, so lots of trying to recall 
how to do stuff.

The disk image and machine config file are stored separately from 
ClearPath MCP Express, so I should be able to just point the new package 
to it when renewal time comes up.
