Successfully Installed AOE2 on Windows 10 using DXWND to run the game in a resize-able window and tweak the settings for running. Need to install Direct Play as patches and installed executable for AOE will not run without it. I had problems installing Direct Play, Windows 10 does not want to install the Legacy version from the Programs and Features > “Turn Windows Features on and off”. So run DirectPlay Setup in the AOE Program Files Directory (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Dplay61a.exe), before installing any patches (http://aok.heavengames.com/patches/). If necessary, google and download the more recent Dplayx.dll to the AOE Folders. (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II) and the (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\age2_x1). If no Direct Play version will install, putting the Dplayx.dll in the directories will still enable you to run the executable. Windows will still prompt for you to add the Direct Play feature, just skip the install when prompted.
