NW2 fails to start on Win10

I haven't found similar problem yet so I decided to ask you to help. For some reason, NW2 fails to start on my computer. When "Mask of the Betrayer" installed, it shows that I need to upgrade an operating system (it probably thinks that I've 98 or 2000). I remember it worked on the same laptop year ago so it's probably something with updates, but I don't want to uninstall every single Windows patch.

Please, help me if you know how. I love this game.

And sorry for my grammar.

Do you get any message? Has it run before and no more after the Fall update?

Check that DirectX 9.0c is properly installed. You can reinstall it from your CDs or from the Microsoft site. Put the executables in XP SP3 compatibility mode.

Preferably do not install the game in the C:\Program Files (X86) folder which is heavily protected.

Anyway the more info you give, the more likely someone will help.
