After the last Windows 10 update one of my computer games doesn't work properly. It's Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's blade. It starts without initial promotion video and without sounds. It's like all values are set to zero including sound. In the agme I have to set sound from minimal level to my custom. Autopilot moves also disabled. I have to select flags again. After each strategical move the game is not automatically saved. The game often is turned off by the system because of some crash. What have you done to W10? What essential improvement turned to disapprovement to this game? This also is happening when I reinstall the Heroes3.
Before latest Windows 10 update the game worked normally (with autosaving (by default) and latest sound levels). Of coarse unlike in Windows 98 in W10 heroes3.exe is often closing by OS. Something abnormal is happening during game execution. So I must start the game again and continue from autosaved place.
Not only Heroes are closed but many more older games after some time of playing are closed by the system, for example S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Chernobyl.
The latest abnormal exit (Quit) from STALKER came up with Windows alert sound. That indicated that something went wrong. At the log at the very end there were these messages:
0023:72FDD815 dxgi.dll, DXGIGetDebugInterface1()
0023:72FDD004 dxgi.dll, DXGIGetDebugInterface1()
0023:74C262C4 KERNEL32.DLL, BaseThreadInitThunk()
0023:77BD0609 ntdll.dll, RtlSubscribeWnfStateChangeNotification()
0023:77BD05D4 ntdll.dll, RtlSubscribeWnfStateChangeNotification()
Looks like W10 is not friendly with older programs.
What can you or me do to prevent lack of system compatibility to those programs?
