HELP: RTW Windows issue?

Hi everyone

Ok I am sure members have had similar issues but I needed to create a new post so I can get some direction and solutions. I have spent practically all day reading going through blogs, faq's, forums youtube and still I dont know what the issue is. Is it simply a compatibility problem??

I have installed RTW DVD-ROM disc version however I am running into all sorts of problems and do not know what to do. I have searched the internet and realized I am not the only one but aswell there are many different issues regarding this version of Windows and this game.

Operating system: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
DirectX Version: 11.2

> Installed game > installation successful.
> Launch game > Run as administrator> click "yes" > Nothing happens.
> Properties > Selected Windows XP (SP3) > Still nothing

I have read about this "-ne" next to .exe in the shortcut but am unsure how to do it as when I do it states its invalid and wont let me edit.

Please give me some solutions and explanations as to why it is so complicated I mean all this time I have wasted just to get this game up and running. I ask to if you can explain in simple terms
