nadascha: I have managed to start the game with the following settings - no modified dll needed:

Windows XP Service Pack 3
Fullscreen disabled

I used the win 10 build in "problem solver" - sorry I don't know the english word for it. But as far as I can tell it works.
This works! Thanks!

seeker010: Found this thread by accident. If anyone still cares, this problem is easily solved by deleting winmm.dll; or download the modified dlls from this thread https://steamcommunity.com/app/354430/discussions/0/490123938438643804/

the ancient version of winmm.dll bundled with EU1 does not work in Windows 10.
yep rennaming WINMM.DLL to BCP WINMM.DLL (because you want to have backups) works : game now starts (i use XP SP 3, Admin rights in compatibility options for Europa.exe) and i am able to get into tutorial.

Spot on! EU1 is running
It's weird that people are saying that EU1 isn't working on W10. 3 days ago I install W10 Enterprise 21H2 on my Sager gaming laptop.

My hardware:
i7-7700K
Nvidia GTX 1080
64GB Corsair Vengeance RAM

Surprisingly, the game launches just fine with no compatibility settings applied. Which is different from my previous results the last time I tested it. But the music doesn't work, which I expected. So I applied my own fix that I posted about some time ago:

https://www.gog.com/forum/europa_universalis_series/fix_for_music_not_working_and_widescreen_in_europa_universalis_1original

I do believe that using dgVoodoo with EU1 is optional, but in my opinion it helps. DxWnd would probably also work. The main reason that alot of old games don't work on W10, is because of graphics issues. 3rd party programs like these help to mitigate that.

Here is a proper fix to get the GOG version of Europa Universalis working on Windows 10:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h7J7yE_EOJaSBD7JHXASfQMgrEf05F7w/

1) Run the GOG installer using default path of C:\GOG Games\Europa Universalis

2) Execute "Europa Universalis (GOG) - compatibility settings for native Win10 GOG install.reg" to set required application compatibility flags in Windows 10 registry

3) Execute "Europa Universalis fixed Music (ogg vorbis from CDDA) for GOG install.exe" self-extracting archive and leave default destination of "c:\", overwriting existing files. This replaces the winmm.dll with the ogg-winmm-1.3.0.0 version and replaces the ogg audio track with an improved rip taken from the CD version of the game and includes additional tracks that aren't actually played but their presence is needed for the music to work (all the tracks play from track02.ogg so that file includes all 5 tracks back-to-back).

That's all, folks. Enjoy!

Bump

Well, I don't know what happened from january to this day, but the archive is broken. It downloads all 53MBs but I get an error dialog saying the archive is damaged or in an unknown format.

However, I no longer need it. After reading various threads on this forum about the issue, I made some tests by using the compatibility mode tab. The only option you guys have to check is "Disable fullscreen optimizations"*, no need to set Windows XP SP 2 or 3. It works even if you don't delete winmm, the game will launch correctly both from the original exe in its folder and the Play button in GOG Galaxy. I'm on Windows 10 Pro x64. The only drawback is that you still have no music.

*Please note that in another thread somrebody wrote "Disable fullscreen" only, so I misunderstood the first time I have read it because other people was mentioning DxWnd as well. But when I applied that fullscreen optimizations thing in europa.exe properties, the game finally launched with its original files. Hope this helps.
