Has anyone gotten this game to work on Windows 10? I know I got it working with Win 8.1, when I go to launch the .exe (it's run as admin and under win xp serv pak 2) with the .dll file and patch, the little H&S logo appears and then nothing. Checked task manager and it's not running in the background, it simply closes.

Anyone?

Are you trying to run the game which was installed from the disk or is your copy from somewhere else (like Steam)?

Yeah it's off the disk, shame though it's not on Steam or GOG.

It certainly is on Steam and GOG, I think I have it from both of them in fact (can never be too safe with this classic game). ;) Haven't heard about anybody having trouble running these versions from Steam or GOG under Win 10.

My fault, I didn't mean Silent Storm, I meant Hammer & Sickle.

Partially my fault as well, didn't see you mentioned H&S a couple posts back. Posted Image

Anyhow, I'm not too sure about H&S. I might have it somewhere on disk but can't find it right now. If you want, head on over to GOG and vote if you want them to release H&S - I did. :)
