    A new post that claims dropping these DLL's into the game folder do work for DX9 problems on Windows 10:

    "Update: S3r1ous over at Guru3D forums has managed to find something that could also be the cause.

    Apparently, The Windows 10 OS Update, KB4051963 (OS Build 16299.98) brings the following changes/fixes:

    So it might be worthwhile to update your Windows 10 installation if you're facing issues. Though that still doesn't change the fact that the crashes go away when you switch to an older driver, and the appalling response from AMD's rep"

    "Happy 2018 everyone!! I am seeing some stories pop up about AMD not supporting some old games. That is absolutely not true, we are identifying the bug and working on a fix asap. C&C, Witcher, BfME, etc will be working again."

    Nvidia's senior engineer with senior marketologist on Friday afterwork in the bar be like:
    - Hey, why wouldn't we spoil something important for small part of gaming community on purpose so that later we'd fix it and get good PR?
    - Hey, that's a great idea! LET'S DO IT!
    And then after they spoil drivers they go see their friend from MIB who out of laugh uses memory erazing pen on them... each time they visit him.
    That's how those driver bugs stuck up. Mystery Solved!
