GO INTO YOUR MEMBERS ACCOUNT HERE AND WHERE YOU SEE YOUR REGISTERED GAMES, YOU WILL SEE WHERE TO DOWNLOAD THEM ONTO YOUR PC, SO THE DISK ISN'T NEEDED, JUST RIGHT CLICK ON THE DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL AS ADMIN, AFTER YOU HAVE RIGHT CLICKED AND CLICKED RUN AS ADMIN, GOOD LUCK

most game of any age, need to be given the pre requites which come with a given game, to be able to run, as windows 10 doesn't already come with them, not the right age of anyway but later version, the previous versions need to be installed, same as some other items for some games, that aren't enabled on windows 10 by default but which does come with it,

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4454024

and then some part of the drivers, which aren't need, upset part of the game at given times, so getting rid of these, also helps some games become more stable with windows 10,

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4491486

how you install and run some games on windows 10 also effect how good or if it runs at all,

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4387060

just as an example, as not done a game install guide for every game for windows 10, most work fine out of the box with nothing needed, but once done, so far all have worked fine with no issues on all 3 sites from my tests

ok, uninstall and make sure the folder is gone, and the one it makes with the setting in, in my docs etc

then if you have the latest download version from your account on here

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4599578

downloaded to your pc, but not on the desktop, as windows 10 can be fussy unpacking and installing from desktop

and your running a fully admin version of windows 10, eg your the main user, not a works pc etc

right click on the installer of the game and then left click on the run as admin button

once it's installed, run the updater to make sure your fully up to date, then follow the links to setup the DLC as shown in the link

Try this if your still on windows 10, when you have a clean install of game make sure you have latest patch installed, then open up properties of panzer corps exe. and click on compatibility mode and check the windows 7 mode then hit apply....I had to figure out what mode ran the best and for me I had no issues running the game under windows 7 mode. I hope this helps :)

the reason the disk version may or may not work, is the game has been updated, and the download version from the site will be better and easier to install than a out of date disk version, but tbh either should work fine, but as you have already tried and failed on the one way, i was just giving you another

the game works perfectly well for most without any alteration needed or compatibility settings used with the site version or steam, with steam being the easier one to download and setup as it does it all for you and is free if you bought the site version, just goto your account here and grab a steam key, again your choice, i'm just giving you options

Could you please attach a DxDiag report file to your message?
How to get a DxDiag report file:

1. Click on "START" (on Windows 8/10 press “Windows key” and the “R” key at the same time)
2. Click "run" (skip this step on Windows 8/10)
3. Type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. Check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. Click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice
6. Attach the file to your message
