I've noticed that user is not allowed to rename Alcohol's virtual drive on Windows 10, it's stuck with "Alcohol V-SATA CD/DVD" name - this is different from Windows 7 where each new drive is assigned a randomly generated name and user can always change it later. Why is it like that? This notably poses a problem with SecuROM (some versions) as it checks the drive name with IOCTL_STORAGE_QUERY_PROPERTY function and appears to reject the drive if it has "Alcohol" in vendor name, showing "Conflict with emulation software detected" error.

 

The test disc image has been checked and it has valid DPM graph as it works on Windows 7 with no issues. Furthermore, intercepting IOCTL_STORAGE_QUERY_PROPERTY and overwriting drive name with something else makes the game consistently boot on Windows 10.

Try to uninstall Alcohol and then reinstall after a reboot. If the problem persists PM Robbo (he is an administrator, you can find his name in The Moderating Team section right down the forum's main page) about this.

Yeah, this is not a bad installation issue as the settings box for renaming the virtual drive is just consistently not there on Windows 10.

Then perhaps it is not possible to do it on Windows 10 (I have Windows 8). There are differences on how Alcohol works on Windows 10 which are due to the OS itself.
