I recently bought 5 Sherlock Holmes games via GOG. I wanted to start playing them in chronological order so I started with Sherlock Holmes: The Silver Earring, after I downloaded it with GOG Galaxy, I sadly discovered that the game simply won't start. After I press the "Play" button on GOG Galaxy, the window flashes for a brief moment but then..nothing.
I've checked my task manager and "game.exe" pops up just for a split seccond before disappearing again. There were not many tips online, here are the things I tried so far:

1. Running the game as administrator + using compatability mode
2. I deactivated the Data Execution Prevention

Could someone help me please? I really want to start playing but somthing apparently doesn't want me to..
