GZDooM 4.5.0 and Emile B's versions (as expected) still won't run unless I disable the OpenGL option.

I wished for the rest of us, remaining on Windows 7 (or even Windows 8.1) was still a viable option. It sounds like Windows 10 just keeps getting worse and worse. Especially for anyone on old hardware. Having to constantly fight with and kludge things in Windows 10 is such a annoying prospect.
