i have tried installing my dh5 game from my retail cd on my windows 10 pc but when i click install on the autoplay it does nothing and i have to end the task. i have tried comparability mode and run as admin but still nothing. i have also contacted atari and they said they no longer support the game.
i really want to play this game because i want to play the virtual season mode again and raise my own deer farm from year to year. do you know of any way. other possibilities i thot of are putting xp on another hdd and hooking it up by sata but it would be a pain to have to switch it all the time in the bios when i restart. would an external hdd be something i could try?

Does the game have securom or safedisc attached to it? In their infinite wisdom MS has disabled secdrv.sys which has stopped a lot of games from running. On a clean install of Windows 10 there is no way round this but if it's been upgraded from 7/8/8.1 then the driver can be re enabled
