Hey, guys! First of all, this is not a question, this is a solution. I believe this will be useful for many people.

I have installed Steam version of Stronghold Crusader on my new laptop which runs Windows 10. When I tried to start the game, it just wouldn't work. No error, no nothing. When I tried to run Stronghold Crusader from the Steam folder:
D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stronghold Crusader Extreme
then I got the error code 0xc0000022. I tried with changing compatibility settings, and it didn't work. It wasn't about that.

You need to enable Direct Play, because having it off is what's causing the issue.

Go to Control Panel, then find Turn Windows features on or off, and under Legacy Components check DirectPlay, and then hit OK. Wait for a while for your PC to finish with everything, and the PC will need to reboot as well. It's all done in few minutes.
