Im still able to play CC5 installed from the CCS .iso on a Win10 32bit install w/o any compatibility tweaks (Run as Admin or emulate XP SP3). You do have to mount the .iso as a virtual CD/DVD and select that drive location after launching the game as the original CCs required the game disk.

Windows 10 Home 64bit.
Tried reinstalling and using an ISO. Still not working. The Event Log gives no useful information, just states that the app crashed. Thought it may be something with how the copy protection in the cc5.exe functions so I tried the cracked cc5.exe, still a no go.
This problem has really got me. No compatibility options work. Event Log is no help. Windows 10 troubleshooter (which is just an automated way to set compatibility settings) doesn't help.
I am hoping for some easier fix than running a virtual instance of XP. Virtual is probably the future but that will knock out the vast majority of the remainder of players.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
I can confirm this solution works, and I am able to play in high resolution.
PS for those who may be asking, I have a clean install of Win 10 on a new machine and ran the install as normal. I did not select a different program folder to do the install.
For those who don't even make it to the errors...like it just doesn't "launch" at all...
Do the install...don't launch yet...go to the ISO image/cdrom (open it up) and manually copy the CCE.exe that is in the 'crack' folder and REPLACE the one that just installed onto your computer.
Issue#2 the 00000...x22 error.
Go search in your search box or go to control panel and find: Windows Features On or Off (or something similar).
----> Make sure "Legacy Components" is checked AS WELL AS 'DirectPlay' (which is tucked under it).
This will eliminate the 0x22 issue.
Issue #3 However, when you run it, you might find yourself with some BS error about how your graphic card can't support 800x600 16 bit....
Right click on your shortcut for CC5 and try these settings (or similar to taste): Run in compatibility mode for win98 sp2 (try '2' if 3 doesn't work).
Run in Reduced color mode (use pull down and select 16-bit (65536) color)
Run this program as an admnistrator
THIS WILL WORK. I'm positive of it.
So, that is how you make two stupid errors go away.
Unfortunately I dont see our favorite CC5 in the list yet, but the GoG forum says they're working on it.
They managed to get 2-4 working but are having issues with 1 and 5. We hope they'll be able to resolve them and add them to the list too at some point. Then there's the other 5 games we released. We don't have a firm date for when any of these will be available"
Also an interesting comment..."The GoG team had to go back to old retail masters and try and make them windows compatible as the source code for the original 5 games was lost many years ago before we acquired it."
