Topic Subject:Issues installing Age of Empires 1 Gold Edition

Hello, sorry to bother you with a troubleshooting post, but I'm desperate.
I'm attempting to install AOE 1 Gold Edition on Windows 10 from an ISO. I successfully installed the game in Safe Mode, restarted my computer in normal mode, and successfully ran UPatch (aoe1 unofficial patch).
The problem: When I try to run Launcher.exe (patch) or EmpiresX.exe (original) I get these error codes: 0x800700022 0xc0000022
Has anyone run into this before? Is there a solution? I'd rather avoid the Definitive Edition because they changed the graphics.

Welcome. Why did you install in safe mode? Is DirectDraw enabled and DirectX installed? Did you try running as administrator/compatibility options?
