I reinstalled DH05 on my new install of Win10 and patched it using the 1.2 patch from here. I've set it to run in WinXP SP3 compatibility mode and also to run as administrator. When I click on the application to launch it, I get the spinning blue circle and then nothing. The game isn't launching at all.
I can't remember if there's something special I need to do or.... Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

You may have to download a cd/dvd player (software) off the net as some win 10 versions do not have the cd/dvd player software as part of the operating system.
The VLC Media player by video lan is a good option.
A lot of new win 10 computers no longer even have a dvd player. Most modern games are now web based and movies are rented and watched online. CDs and DVDs are obsolete for most new computers.
The reason I loaded the game to a flash drive for my grandson ... is because his win10 computer does not have a Cd/Dvd player.
Did you install directly from the win 10 OS system or did you use another OS and direct it to your win 10 hard drive during the install.
Did you use a cd for the install or a download version from the net.
I suspect that your win 10 OS is not seeing your CD/DVD player.
You could try going to 'My computer" from the win 10 OS and see if the dvd player is showing, if it is try opening the files and starting the game from the dh2005 exe on the cd.

I wiped my drive and did a clean install of Win10. My win7 was corrupted and was giving me a lot of headaches. I backed up my profile and my custom maps and maps I was working on as well as the editor and I still had the installer from when I bought the game initially.
I'm still using my custom PC that I built a few years ago which has a dvd rom drive but I'm using the downloaded installer version. I may have to boot into my XP drive and just copy the game to a drive and then bring it over. Not sure what else to do.
