Please check images link, I've uploaded two more. Im not entirely sure about compatibility if I did everything needed. I tried with compatibility for Vista, XP sp2, without it, always the same error.

The Registry settings look ok but please screenshot inside the Options folder. Also did you use a UK version of the CD to install?

Try disabling your Antivirus and Windows Defender services, via Control Panel -> Administrative Tools ->Services as it might be preventing our mod fix .dlls to run.

Updated images link with new images.

This is the link I've downloaded from - http://www.myabandonware.com/game/warhammer-dark-omen-457#download
I guess its UK.

Tried disabling windows defender, didn't help (have no other antivirus)

It's probably due to that downloaded version you have - check your messages

I analyzed this error two weeks ago because I had no setup available and the same issue.

Go to "Programs and Features" and click "Add/Remove Windows Features".
And under "Outdated/Inherited components" (No idea how it is called in English) tick "DirectPlay".

Accept the changes and DO should start.

I once had the same error at my bro's laptop operating under Win8. I failed to fix that problem using instructions.
Probably, Ghabry's solution would have helped. I cannot verify it atm though. Probably, the solution is worth mentioning at troubleshooting steps in Olly's instructions.

Hey guys, great news! I can confirm that the game started after enabling DirectPlay (needed to reinstall the game tho).
Thank you all for your help!

I got hacked last week just a day before the hacking your probably heard about it the news.... had to rebuild the laptop and enable DirectPlay, reinstall the game and mods, add reg files etc but surprisingly I don't need to do anything regarding compatibility mode and Windows 10 keeps trying to expand my 640 x 480 screen to much larger. Haven't tested that out just yet because the game is working now but yeh, just surprised I didn't need to enable compatibility mode for once.

Ghabry could you advise on the following dark omen start exception:

Windows8
Original dark omen starts properly and runs original campaign. So game installation is OK.

Olly's Modded version with mod selector and updated ddraw.dll and darkpatch.dll returns  this exception number:
0xc0000142.

First isolate if it's ddraw.dll or darkpatch.dll. Does original PRG_ENG start with ddraw.dll in the folder?

Does modded PRG_ENG work without ddraw.dll in the folder?

Otherwise it must be darkpatch.dll. Though no idea what the problem is then, have no Windows 8 :/
