    Hello everyone :)

    Today I tried to install Donald Duck Quack Attack. (It is called Goin' Quackers in the US)
    The installation was easy, everything worked like it should, but then I tried to start the game and I just got a white screen with "Donald Duck" in the upper left corner.

    The game worked just fine on Windows XP.

    Someone asked the same question in a German forum, but for Windows 7. They told him/her that you have to turn on a Compability Mode. Does anyone know how this works for Windows 10?

    EDIT: I have tried the compability mode for Windows 98, XP (Pack 2) and XP (Pack 3) and none of them worked :(

    It didn't work, but thanks for replying.

    I have checked the cd-rom box and my laptop fits all system requirements. It should work in one way or another.

    A Russian YouTuber told me I had to download DirectX 12. I couldn't find any legal dowloads but I did find this on Microsoft's website. It's for DirectX 9.

    It works now :) Yeey!
