Wizardry 8 - Game Crashing with Win 10 Fix

Quick Guide on getting the game to run if you are using Windows 10.

The Fix

  • Click Install.
  • Click on the cog wheel to the right.
  • Go to manage and Browse local files.
  • Scroll down to - Wiz8 - Application - 3,497 KB.
  • Right click on it till you see Run as Administrator show up.
  • Click on Properties at the bottom.
  • Click on the tab called Compatibility.
  • Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows 7 (may be able to skip, mine unchecked itself, after I set it).
  • Make sure Run this program as an administrator is checked. Note: Don't skip this step.
  • Hit Apply.
  • Go back to Steam page - Click Play game (no need to delete files, or install other programs, game works perfectly, with all sounds, and cut scenes in tact).
  • Enjoy!

Note: This also works for a ton of other older games who hate running with Windows 10.
