Trying to start any of these games -- from their original CDs! -- stopped working when I upgraded to Windows 10. I get a black screen and can't even get the desktop back except by hitting CTRL-ALT-DEL, starting Task Manager, having it log me out, and then logging back in again.
- Heroes of Might and Magic II and III
- You Don't Know Jack 1, 2, and 3
- History of the World
The only clue I've found is a mention in TechDirt, which says they've disabled some kinds of copy protection and that patches exist (but not a word about where to get them).
Any help to get these games to work again would be appreciated. If there isn't any I may have to roll the system back to Windows 7, if I still can.
