RBR Won't Run in Windows 10

    Hope you can help me.

    I have an original DVD copy of Richard Burns Rally which ran OK in Windows 7, but I can't get it to run in Windows 10.

    Things I have tried:-

    1. Load the files in a separate folder C:/Richard Burns Rally.

    2. Run in compatability modes for both Windows 7 and Windows XP.

    3. Set the game screen resolution to match my monitor (1920 x 1080).

    I got an error message "Access Denied - Log in as administrator and try again." (even though my user account already has administrator privileges).

    So then I enabled the real Administrator account, logged into it and tried to run RBR. Now I got no error message, but just the Busy icon for a couple of seconds, then it reverted to the normal desktop wallpaper. I logged in again as myself and got the same result - no error message, no anything.

    Can anyone tell me what I should try now?
