Find Drakensang in your game list.
Right click and go into properties.
Go to "set launch options" and paste this in there:
-d3d9 -windowed

That seemed to work for me to (Windows 10), but the video is very buggy even in window mode and wont show in full screen mode.
Is there a lot of videos in the game ?

I didn't change anything, but I started the game and press ALT+Enter, and it showed my game.

This helkped me, too. After starting the game without changing anything after the installation press ALT + ENTER. This switches between fullscreen and windows mode of the game. Works fine on a laptop with WIN 10.

I had the same Problem, and found a fix for that:
You need to download the Windows ADK for Windows 10[developer.microsoft.com] and install it. (version 1703 is for the Creators Update)
then start "Compability Administrator 32 bit" program
Right Click on New Database(1) -> Rename it to "Drakensang"
Right Click on New Drakensang Database entry and choose Create New -> Aplication Fix...
Name of the programm to be fixed: -> "Drakensang"
Name of the vendor for this program: -> "Radon Labs"
Program file location: -> click on Browse... and choose the path of the Drakensang exe file.
click on next 2 times
under compability fixes select "ForceSimpleWindow"
click on Test Run... to check if the Game runns correct then end the Game.
click on next -> under Main Executable select "SIZE="
click on Finish
right click on Custom Databases -> Drakensang and choose install.

Drakensang now should work fullscreen again without errors.
This also applies to "Drakensang the River of Time".

Fantastic. This is the only thing that worked for me. BTW - When installing the ADK (v1709 now) you can uncheck everything but the first item (Application Compatibility Tools) so the install is only 8Meg instead of like 6Gig.

Man this is frustrating. I got my resolution right to run in windowed mode but the game crashes on the ARDO screen intro with the following message: Failed to load 2D textures OUTOFMEMORY

I play off of my old CD disk, but I have RoT from Steam. Would it be in here: this Pc > Windows C > program files (x86) > steam > steamapps > common > drakensang ?
