game works out of the box with no alterations other than whats shown above and works full screen with my default of 1920x1080 in windows 10 home or pro, with nothing else needed, everything that comes with the game is all that's needed (with a minor file for dxr 7), just follow install instructions above..

alt tab isn't supported in game and will or could cause error's once or if used in game as shown, tried all version of compatibility mode to remove this and none worked so just used standard windows 10 settings shown

and paste same file to windows\sysytem32 folder as well, both are needed...

with both being done, the game won't work and is needed, it's the only thing that's needed to make fully windows 10 compatible and it's a successful windows 10 work around, from a vista and others fix / solution

Many thanks, zak.

This fix is also needed for good old Windows 7

Does this apply to Ctrl Esc too ? Both get the game to and from the Taskbar usually.

[ I know Ctrl Esc works in Vista for this game ( Spartan ). ]

Answering my own question :

Yes : Ctrl + Esc causes errors also, ( in both Vista and Win 7 ).

Noted to date ( on both ) :

1. This causes problems with Trade ( Buys and Sales ), that are linked to the games Trade Limit Function.

2. This causes problems with Unit Selection and Deployment, on the Pre Battle Deployment Screen.

3. This causes visual problems in the actual Battles, re the Unit and Greek Fire Graphics, and the ( Mouse ) Pointer.

However, there is a simple solution re 1. and 2. : Press the Ctrl key after you restore the game !!!

[ NB : If you forget to apply the solution after you restore the game ; the Trade Screen problem and the Pre Battle Deployment Screen problem, can still both be solved, by pressing the Ctrl key, as and when you realise the error. Possible exception : if used during an actual Battle... ]

Re 3. : There is no apparent solution. Therefore, do NOT use Ctrl + Esc whilst in an actual Battle * !

[ * : The use of Ctrl + Esc and then Ctrl again, other than in an actual Battle, does NOT create the in Battle Graphics errors. These only occur if Ctrl + Esc is used during an actual Battle ! ]
