    Try it in compatibility mode or whatever it is called.

    I have found several older games don't work with Win 10. I dual boot Win 7 and play all older games in Win 7.

    The game is designed to work on Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7. You could try running it in VIrtualBox with an earlier OS but doing so is not ideal as virtualisation wasn't designed for gaming.
