skymt: I got Incubation running on Windows 10 after staying up way too late last night. Here's how: GOG uses a library called for some games to play back music from .ogg files instead of CD audio. A change in Windows 10 [url=http://www.gog.com/forum/star_wars_xwing_and_tie_fighter_series/working_with_windows_10]broke the library, and GOG hasn't shipped an updated version for Incubation. So I replaced its "sound.dll" with the "winmm.dll" from a GOG installation of Jedi Knight.

After that, it would display a black screen and immediately crash. That I fixed by running Incubation's GOG "Settings.exe" and switching from DirectX to 3Dfx mode, which uses the nGlide wrapper. Then I was able to launch the game and load into a mission without any apparent problems.
I have lost music and voices from 3rd cutscenes (briefing at office with "blue woman") - on the intro and first cutscens in game I heard the voices.. I haven't also music during exit from game (scores).

I read the post from other topic and change that sound.dll and now it works perfect.

I am using windows 7.

Thanks a lot !!!

Sadly all suggested solutions didnt work for me, I still got the same I/O Error. even after replacing the dlls, making sure the legacy component in Win 10 is active, 3dfx mode, etc.
Any advise?
I have (after many days) managed to get Battle Isle 3 to work on my 64-bit Windows 10 PC and I thought I would share how I did it in one place:

1) Obtain a copy of Oracle VirtualBox online (FREE)
2) Obtain an ISO of Windows XP SP3 easily found online with a websearch
3) Run virtuaBox and create a Windows XP machine; load the ISO in as an optical drive (CHeck the boot order) in the VirtualBox dialogue
4) Create the XP machine
5) Load the BI3 ISO in the VirtualBox drive and install BI3 on the Virtual XP machine
6) Copy the data of the CD 1 onto the hard disk into the path: C\BLUEBYTE\SDI - NOTE THAT THIS MAY DIFFER, it is where the game installed
7) Copy the files from the folder C:\BLUEBYTE\SDI\BIN to the folder C:\BLUEBYTE\SDI
8) Copy all DLL files from the folder C:\BLUEBYTE\SDI into C:\ Windows\system32
9) Create a link to the desktop from the startup file "SDI_1R" in the folder C:\BLUEBYTE\SDI

click with the right mouse button on the link, select properties and the add /0 after the target address
OPTIONAL - in the Compatibility tab you set the following: Start Windows SP XP 3 + as administrator (DEPENDS on whether you are already set as ADMIN)

10) Find SDI.INI in the windows directory and edit it to only read the following: (NOTE to check your drive letter for the ISO on the PATH3 line)

[FILES]
PATH0 =
PATH1 =
PATH2 = C:\BLUEBYTE\SDI
PATH3 = D:\
PATH4 =
PATH5 =
PATH6 =
PATH7 =
PATH8 =
PATH9 =
SDIPATH = C: \ Games \ BI3
COUNTRY = / 0
[ADVANCED]
remotePath =
FIRST TIME = YES
[STARTUP]
VFW_SETUP_PATH = D\V4W\SETUP.EXE
[WIN32]
WIN32 = YES

Make sure there is a SAV directory in the SDI directory - if not create one (Right click)

Finally, check that the screen resolution on the main screen is set to the correct resolution or the game crashes after it starts (right click on windows background, click properties, click settings and then select the screen dimensions to 1024x768)
