FWIW
I have 2 laptops, relatively new, 1 brand new. I struggled getting the game to work. I got the best result with my newest, cheap computer (AMD A6 w/Radeon R4). Only Windows 7 Compatibility Mode worked.

I used the following switches:
-w (full screen was glitchy no matter what I did)
-altFont (I am getting older)
-SingleCpuOrders (it worked)
-cpu2
-multiaudio (not sure why, but it was glitchy without it)
-deepColor
-dd_sw

You don't say what problems you are having.
As I recently posted, with Win 10 I had to change from -cpu2 to -cpu3 to cure a long hesitation on mouse clicks and other inputs
I also had to ditch the -dd_sw switch to stop the graphic images on unit screens from jumping up and down.
I could not get Full Screen to work because the Windows Command Bar wouldn't go behind it. There may be a way to do this but I haven't found it yet. I just put the Command Bar on the right side of the screen and adjusted my window by dragging borders to fit within the available space remaining.

EDIT: forgot to add that I remember seeing something about laptops needing different switches than desktop systems, so what worked for me may not apply in your case.

The -dd_sw switch caused the same thing in full screen, but not in window mode.
