EDIT: Looks like I got it running! It looks like moving "d3d9.dll" and "d3d9on12.dll" from SysWOW64 to the SH4 root directory worked! Would like to hear if this fix works for anyone else with Windows 10/Dx9 related issues. Let me know if you want more details and I can post. No compatibility settings of any kind are enabled on my SH4.exe file, by the way. This is a raw Steam installation of SH4 + SH4 UBoats.

Reporting in that Silent Hunter IV does not appear to run on my Windows 10.0.18362 Build 18362 PC. The window opens with a black screen, then closes after a second or two.

Tried the following:
-DirectX web updater and the DirectX redist in the game folder
-Disable full screen optimizations
-Override High DPI Scaling
-Compatibility Modes (XP, Vista, 7, etc)
-Launching in windowed mode (via Main.Cfg)
-Setting display monitor res = 1024 x 768

None of these have worked for me so far. Odd thing is that the game DID work when I last tried launching it 3-6 months ago, so looks like some update to Windows or my graphics drivers has broken it, since.

Anyone know if there have been any major Windows updates in the last few months that have broken compatibility?
