Tried running GK3 both under GOG Galaxy (launched as Administrator) and from the start menu link (as Administrator) - in all cases, the only thing I ever see is "Insert CD 1". I also tried running it the same ways after installing Virtual CloneDrive to make it think I have a CD player. Same error.

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Pro 4. Everything installed to default location. Other GK games run fine - but not GK3.

Suggestions?
Just wondering if you ever got this resolved. I'm having the same issue on the same device.

Try grabbing the patched .exe from the GoG Support FTP Server:

http://files.gog.com/support/GK3.zip

This did not entirely fix the problem for me. I still had to have a CD-ROM drive present. With modern versions of Windows, I've taken to just right clicking a valid .iso file and choosing Mount from the menu instead of installing 3rd party software. Once I had ANY iso mounted, I was able to run the game.

I am doing this on a Dell XPS 13, not Surface Pro, so your mileage may vary, but I think it should get you up and running.

Any .iso file will work (you can download all kinds of cd-rom images from the internet).

Unfortunately in my case it does't work. I tried with an iso file from the web (see attachment) and I also tried with a physical iso cd win, but it still does not run... every time "insert cd1" ;(

You mounted that iso in Windows (only so that you had a "cd-rom" drive mounted that the OS could see) and installed the "new" GK3.exe from the GOG ftp site, and then ran GK3, and are still seeing the issue?

If so, might be best to open a GOG ticket.. remnants of copy protection that are clearly behaving differently based on variables of computer, operating system, drives attached, etc.
Ty for support my friend. However i contacted the support and they send me a new file .exe
After replaced the file in folder, the game started correctly. Remains a question: why they don't insert the right file directly in the first link of download? ty bye
GOG told me this game simply doesn't work on Windows 10. At least their version doesn't. I had to get my version of GK3 from old-games.com. That version of the game freezes constantly on Windows 10, but at least it's playable.

I had this same issue, ie, Insert CD 1. I already a CD-Rom drive on my Win 8 laptop. Using the patched .exe file solved the problem for me and game runs fine
