I'm going to buy a Windows 10 laptop just to run SHD Plugin and Dirac.

Can this software run on a Windows 10 S machine?

Um... Windows 10 S is the one that only allows apps from the Microsoft Store?
I am not miniDSP support.

Only if you switch out of S mode, then you won't be able to switch back to S mode.

Thanks. Excuse my ignorance of all things Windows. My last Windows machine was running XP. I thought the S version was unchangeable by the end consumer. Seems pretty straightforward to switch to 10. I don't ever see myself switching back to the S version, so that's not a problem.

Another question:

I am getting a free one year subscription for a product called bitdefender total security 2020 with my laptop.

Is this something I should download and install, if all I will be using the laptop for is SHD plugin and Dirac?

I never install any 3rd party antivirus/security stuff on any Windows 10 PC.
Over the years they have all turned to bloatware and often have more security holes than without.
Windows 10 has builtin security tools which should be good enough for your use case.
