After upgrading to Windows 10 today, I realized that Driver was unplayable. Since I was running Windows 8.1 previously, I was using the DDraw.dll and Sound fix for all my stability/usability issues from the other post in this part of the forum. When I booted up with game with the DDraw.dll in the root folder, I only got a black screen, if I removed it, video worked. So remove DDraw.dll if you want video to work! Secondly, the game music continued to work from the sound fix, but no effects were playing (car sounds, sirens, horns, menu click, etc). Somehow the game got automatically muted in the Windows Volume Mixer panel, so if you have no sound, go there and unmute it! That should be all that is needed to get the game running on W10.
SIDENOTE: The game works amazing even without the DDraw.dll on Windows 10. I don't know if it is DirectX 12 or what. But if you're on W8/8.1 you NEED the dll to fix the performance issues.
