Error 0xc0000022 while starting Stronghold Crusader on Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys! First of all, this is not a question, this is a solution. I believe this will be useful for many people.

 

I have installed Steam version of Stronghold Crusader on my new laptop which runs Windows 10. When I tried to start the game, it just wouldn't work. No error, no nothing. When I tried to run Stronghold Crusader from the Steam folder:

D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stronghold Crusader Extreme

then I got the error code 0xc0000022. I tried with changing compatibility settings, and it didn't work. It wasn't about that.

 

You need to enable Direct Play, because having it off is what's causing the issue.

 

Go to Control Panel, then find Turn Windows features on or off, and under Legacy Components check DirectPlay, and then hit OK. Wait for a while for your PC to finish with everything, and the PC will need to reboot as well. It's all done in few minutes.

Good to know, EaglePrince.

 

I have read somewhere that Windows 10 is incompatible with some of the older SH games and that is exactly the reason why I am still holding off on upgrading my system.

 

Do you know how it works with the other games? SH2 and SHL?

Well, yes, this might be what they were speaking about, but luckily it wasn't actually about compatibility, but about one necessary option being disabled at Windows 10 by default.

 

I don't know about Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends, but I will hopefully check that tomorrow. I'll be busy, but if I forget, please remind me to do it. :) Now it's late, but tomorrow when I come home I can try to install them, and see how they work.

    • Need Help Running Stronghold 2: Deluxe Version 1.31

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls

    • Microsoft Just Killed the Crusader Ai Village Editor

      Microsoft changed what the F1 key does: it pulls open the Bing browser (eww) and opens a useless help file. (why????) In the Stronghold Crusader AIV editor, F1 did a critical function: SAVING the file in progress. I believe Firefly was a bit lazy when they designed the AIV editor because they didn't think that anyone would be using it nearly 20 years later - the AIV editor does not have a save file button! Anyone know a way around this issue? Do I need to install Windows XP on my compu

      Stronghold Legends has an exclusive bonus trail (Arthur's Challenge) that was originally only released with the Gold disk version of the game. This means that without this version, you had no way of being able to collect all the awards or completely finish the game. However, Firefly have since released the 4th exclusive bonus trail as an addon application, which I have sourced and uploaded to our downloads section, available here. You only need to use this application if you are still using
