I had the game running on windows 10 fine, then a few hours ago I installed new versions 1.48 and the patch 3 for it.

NOW, the game won't run, loading screen stays on and the menu flashes in the background, cant change display to 1200's (which worked yesterday), every option I try and change is changed back after game exits.

This patch really messed up the game and this is on a brand new download of the original game from steam.

Icon9 DW Windows 10

For some reason, I'm getting an error where the base game and RA both launch fine, and I get loaded and through to the main menu, but my cursor is stuck mid screen at the menu. I can still move the mouse and things get highlighted and are clickable, but the cursor won't move on screen, Any ideas?

Default DXWND works!

Here is a link to FPSchazly's instructions on how to get DW working in a window for Windows 10.
I've got mine set up to run at Mode 3 1280x1024 in a 4x3 window. You can either run it in a window or full screen. Since I have multiple monitors I'm running DW windowed in full screen mode and using the other monitor to display other useful files such as Platform Reference and Sonar Profiles.
I'm also currently using the LWAMI 3.11 modset.
Dangerous Waters is playable again!
***IMPORTANT*** Do NOT use the d3d8.dll fix with this, it will not let you run in a window!
