EHM 2004/2005/2007 On Windows 10 - How to run

Just noticed a few people, old posts, asking how to get it working.

I felt your pain, I had some messages to Riz and he really tried and tried and now it works after trying everything this is what I did...

Install the games (I have all on disc) + update them (download.com seems to still have the files and some are on here)

Run in ADMIN mode is set in my properties

Go to game copy world website, get the NO CD FIX for the latest update, copy and paste into your EHM folder containing the .exe of the game - it will work. OBVIOUSLY make sure you own the game before getting a NO CD FIX or that's kinda bad. [-X

Thanks for sharing. We don't allow discussion of piracy on here but I think it's fair to make an exception for a game which is so old and can otherwise no longer run on modern Windows. I have been running EHM 2004 via an Windows XP installation running in VirtualBox - but that's arguably a bit more faff than running it natively in Windows 10.

No problem, I was a bit wary if to post it or not but being in the situation where you just want to play one of the old versions again, then you get blank screen or error it was killing me. So I don't even know why I decided to try the NO CD I'd just ran out of every other option!

Appreciate you understanding!
