So I just bought this game during the sale. When I try to run it the mouse pointer disappears and I get a blank box. I'm running Windows 10. Is there a way to get this to work, or did I waste my money?
I've tried running in compatibility mode for Vista, Windows XP and Win 7. With Vista and XP mode I get an active x can't create object error.

Well, I'm a bit hesitant about running a program that right from the git go says it a is a Windows breaker. So I buy this game from Matrix and have to risk my whole operating system to run it? That isn't really acceptable. I'd rather just get my money back or a fix that allows me to run this program without risking my whole set up. As far as Nvidia drivers...well, I keep them updated regularly and have not problems with any other programs...which well, I'm addicted to buying computer games and have hundreds. I'd really rather have a fix for this game as I've eyed it for years. If this game doesn't work on Windows 10, then it should be advertised. I do understand that what caused problems on one setup might not cause a problem on another. I'm looking for an answer that doesn't risk me having to reinstall my whole system. Thanks for your suggestions though.

not sure you understand my post, most games, like 99% will work with windows 10 fine, with no issues, but again maybe 50% will need parts that are either missing or included with windows 10, but not installed by default,

take it this way, windows 10 is the best supported gaming platform ever released from M/S so far, and includes almost everything to make it backwards compatible with games which weren't out when windows 10 was made, it's easier to add in the parts that's missing which are mostly included with windows 10 btw, so my guide already says, your not adding 3rd party stuff, just stuff that's already in windows 10, and made for and fully supported and works with windows 10, just not included or installed by default

so you have to install them manually

if you wish to not do this, then that's your call, but as most games will ow install stuff that does't come with windows 10 and are called pre requisites etc, and most install them with not a second thought, i find your reply somewhat odd, but like i said, again it's your call and i'm happy to offer my advice if you wish, or if you don't wish to buy also, i'm fine with that also, there are no risks to doing as i suggest, as there windows 10 own files, which come pre installed on windows 10, but not configured to run etc

hey, well I appreciate your comments. I probably need to look over your third suggestion more carefully. The window resizing program right up front says it has a reputation as a Windows breaker. The other suggestions seem much more tame. Anyway, I'll look into them and I do appreciate your advice!
