3 - Copy the 4 DDL files from the IPX Wrapper folder to the Close Combat III folder (adjust to wherever Close Combat III files are installed to - below is default for my Desktop Close Combat III Install)
G:\Close Combat III
4 - Go back to IPX Wrapper extracted zip folder
5 - Run ipxconfig.exe program

11 - Double-Click the appropriate reg file that applies to your OS
"Directplay-win32.reg" for 32-bit Windows
"Directplay-win64.reg" for 64-bit Windows (I run Win 10 x64 so this is what I used)
12. Click through the prompts to allow the Registry file to add the contents to your system.

At this point you should be able to start the game and find a new entry for IPX in Close Combat III Multiplayer. You Should be able to create a Multiplayer game under IPX. Should you do the exact same process on another PC that is on your home Local Area Network (LAN), your 2nd PC should see the host game on Close combat III IPX Multiplayer. Granted you followed the instructions properly and have the 2nd PC already showing on your win 10 network with file sharing enabled.
