    Windows 10 Won’t Run Games Using SafeDisc Or Securom DRM

    Just posting this as apparently it was intentional for security reasons that Windows 10 does not support disc based games that used these old DRM methods.

    People are going to complain about it, but it's actually a good thing. Both of those DRM schemes opened up security holes.

    The good news is that most games that used to use them have either had them patched out or are available in alternate versions (Steam/GOG etc) that don't use those DRM schemes.
