Can't start desperate housewives game - original disk error
The rest of the Internet wouldn't help me, so I'm asking here:
I have the PC game of desperate housewives, already played it on Win XP long time ago, and I was hoping to play it on Windows 10.
Installation worked fine but I can't start the game. It keeps telling me that I need the "original disk" which I obviously have. I tried starting it in compability mode and as an administrator, there is no error message but it still doesn't start.
I found a few posts about it online (mostly 2009 or earlier), seems to be a common problem, and tried two patches by the developers but that is also just giving me error messages (file couldn't be found?).
Someone wrote somewhere that it is impossible to start it on a newer PC but I don't accept that. Is there anyone in this forum who plays this game sucessfully on a new PC?
I would be very happy if someone had a solution
