MM6 memory check error in Win10

    upgraded to Win10 a month ago. Installed MM6 (as admin) and been playing through. Got all four Memory Crystals for the Oracle by now, off to clear Paradise Valley and Dragonsands so I'm well into the game.

    But.....

    Occasionally, I click on the CD drive and get the start game screen (the golden plate armor)....and it throws an error trying to check the available memory in the system.

    (Like you need a minimum of 300MB to play.... so my system returns thousands of MBs and the game craps out).

    This was happening once in a blue moon at first, but today is happening every single time I try to launch the game.

    I realize the original code probably checks MBs instead of GBs for memory, and might have an issue with digits/decimal points, but it was working fine up to now (with occasional glitches).

    Any workaround known out there?

    1: Running the game in Compatibility Mode (95, 98 or XP SP3 work good for me with older games)

    2: Set up a virtual machine to run Win98

    3. Set up Linux on a partition, USB or Live Disk and run the game through WINE, still can use your save files

    4. Run from the MM6.exe in the game folder directly, I have never had an issue with MM6 on Win10 but I've never loaded it from the splash auto-run screen either.

    I got that error when installing from my original game disks and ended up getting the GOG version anyway to preserve the original CDs (I've lost the map though /cry ). So you could try a copy of the GOG version if you haven't already.

    Good Luck!
