WithinRafael: Plop that baby in the \bin folder and should resolve that issue, from 1.0 to 1.3 with/without NoCD.

Thanks WithinRafael. Game will now run with the Binatone headset which has a much better tonal quality than my other Logitech headset has. Not nocking Logitech...just the model I have. Your fix will improve my experience.

Thank you so much! Works as advertised!
For those having the issue win Windows 10 where the game launches, plays in fullscreen for a split second, then shifts back to the previous desktop, with the game still "running" in the taskbar, and repeats this if clicked on to reactivate it, I found a fix that worked for me.

Dig into the install folder, bin subfolder, right-click on Myst4.exe and open properties. Under the Compatibility tab, check "Override high DPI scaling behavior", then set the "Scaling performed by" to "System".

I suspect that with some (mine is an Nvidia) graphics cards, the card and the app fight over who controls the DPI, resulting in this problem.

Hope that helps some of the people wanting to play the game.

Just saw, thank you very much. This helps also for other games, for example Star Wars Episode 1 Racer.

I have to say, WithinRafael, I didn't think it would be possible to run Myst IV on my gaming PC. Thanks to you, it started without any problem. Thanks so much!
Runs perfectly @ 1024x768, Windows 10x64, version 1903, build 18343.1 (Insider's), RX-590 8GB/480 Crossfire, Adrenalin 19.2.2 GPU drivers. Game build 1.03, GOG.

Thank you very much! Works flawlessly and couldn't have been easier to implement.
So far haven't been able to run this on any Windows 10 systems other than ONE time in the beginning and then nothing.

Most everybody said that it was my Alienware Area 51 alx, but now I also have a new HP Omen and have the same issue.

I look back through all of the posts and tried everything suggested and nothing helped. Then I saw where somebody said to check the Windows Event Log to see what is causing this and every time time it is "ntdll.dll".

Not sure just yet what to do to fix this, but just thought I would mention it.

FYI: GOG and Cyan both have given up on my case......

Hey there, just saw this (late, sorry). I'm interested, are you still having this issue? I'd be interested in getting a dump from you to dig deeper.

Yes, still cannot run this game (all of the other MYST games work).
what is it that you would like to see?

Did you ever get this to work? Tried for the first time today and the same problems as everyone else. Sadly WithinRafael's fix didn't work for me
PLEASE help fix this. Recommended fixes didn't work. I paid for this game. Please GOG make it work for Windows 10.
