run as admin from a admin account, this sets it up in a protected space and add's exe to firewall and AV privileges etc

windows 10 protection kicks in, allow it to run, or disable this feature, imo let it do it's job as it's protecting windows from harm using it...

as soon as you try and play the game using the menu button, windows will ask you for some files to be installed and added to make the game work in this version, this is normal on a new pc install, just let it.

not full screen as my default is 1920x1080, so may or may not support all resolutions on modern cards and screens, but works well windowed or full screened with a boarder anyway
