possible solution for windows 10 issues

[Post New]by bestmommat on Apr 21, 16 6:30 AM
a friend of mine sent me this...I haven't tried it as I'm still using xp

Hope this helps as it did for her!

The following steps have also been tested to resolve the problem:

Right-click on the game icon from the desktop ( or game icon in game file location on computer) and choose 'Properties'.

Select the 'Compatibility' tab.
Check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for: 'Windows XP (Service Pack 3)'. Please also try this by choosing the 'Windows 7' option if Windows XP does not work.
Importantly, make sure you check the box "run this as an administrator"
Click 'Apply' and then OK.
Start a game. You should now be able to play this game.

I am running Windows 10 64 bit OS. By turning off the special effects in the settings the game stopped giving me the error code and throwing me out to desktop. I really didn't miss the special effects and really enjoyed the game. Domini has given us another great game to enjoy.

Am running Windows 10. Had the same error.
The link to the troubleshooting for Win 10 brought me to adjusting the DPI to 100% and the game now works fine.
Thanks for that info, going to enjoy the game now.
