Windows 10 compatibility problem for Heroes of Might and Magic IV

by santyclause   Last Updated April 16, 2018 07:14 AM

I've been a big fan of the older Heroes of Might and Magic games or more specifically, the fourth one. However, ever since I've updated to Windows 10, I have failed to get the game to run and my previous compatibility solution no longer works.

At the moment, it allows me to fully install it (from a copy I've been using for years) and will open a launcher window but, if I hit play from there or try to run the actual game some other way, it will simply close the launcher andnot do anything.

What I've tried:

  • Setting compatibility mode to every option below Windows 10.
  • Running as administrator
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling
  • Installing and trying to run on two different computers (both Windows 10)

The first two list items allowed me to easily get it running on Windows 8 but have not been cutting it for Windows 10.

So I was wondering, is there a way to get HOMM4 running on my Windows 10 computer?

same problem here. would love to hear a solution that works. there's no issue with the cd copy protection for me, just actually getting it to run after installation.
