    Installing POP the two thrones

    I have tried installing this game and it keeps coming up 're boot to complete the install' when I have I've got to go to a restore point and have it uninstalled. Is it fixable or this game not compatible with windows 10 64bit

    Try running the setup in Windows 8 or 7 compatibility mode with admin rights. Right-click on the file and select Properties, then click the Compatibility tab. Check the box to enable the menu and select Windows 8 or 7 (try both to see which works). Also check the Run as Administrator box to make sure the installation doesn't fail due to access rights. Some games are looking for DirectX 9 files, try installing latest DirectX 9.0x runtime. It doesn't matter that Windows 10 include DirectX 12, some older DirectX 9 files are not present and any game looking for them may fail running properly. Install latest runtime to get these files.

    I have tried both and it comes up with 'protection system' even though the application installed successfully, what am I doing wrong?

    If the "protection system" is some application that checks for genuine before starting the game, you could try finding the relevant executable (look in Task Manager) and then set it at Windows 7 Compatibility mode with admin rights. I would browse to the folder of the game and then search for EXE This will give you all the executables. No matter how many they are, I would right-click on them one-by-one and set Windows 7 compatibility with admin rights. I would do it for all users (not only current user) just in case. Then the game could work. If it doesn't the only way to play it is dual-boot with older Windows or wait for a Windows 10 patch from programmers (check their site, they may have it already).
