Default DW crashing on start up

I have a DVD of DW I tried running it through a program called dxwnd. I had this working once before so I know it works, but I forget what I did to fix it. I had to reinstall it. I have a windows 10 PC with I7 5820K CPU with 16 gigs of ram, a GeForce gtx 1080 ti graphics card, and an SSD hard drive. I found two different videos on youtube both looked like they worked, but both settings give me the same error message. failed to initialize graphics display" "Context Create Error: -2147467259" I think a year or two ago when I had DW installed I had to adjust my color settings on windows 10 to 16 bit and that got it to work, but I don't remember how I did that now. I was wondering if anyone has seen this error and knew how to fix it?

DW should work under windows 10 only with wrapper:

wrapper link

Other method is to use dgvoodoo2 - if you wanna play in windowed mode.
