Verify your game files in Uplay.
Check if you have DirectX.
Check if you have installed the newest graphic card drivers.
Try to run as admin or with W7 compatibility.

And hope it'll keep crashing, as you peruse a new, temptress avenue of really good alternatives. YAY!

But my white panda side will say: "Try what Antalyan said, if it's important to you."

Have you installed the game files from Microsoft?

Visual Studio C++ redistributable 2015 has to be downloaded from the Microsoft Downloads web page and installed a.s.a.p(both x86 and x64).

From the same web page, make a search for the DirectX end user file from 2010. In other words the good ole' DX 9.0c but, updated to DX 9.29xxxx(9.0d).

You might have to make your own little investigation as to see if your new PC's video card can compensate for DX11 games. Because, the newest video cards might be stuck in DX12 as for graphics decoding.

Sorry to intervene like this but, have you considered...

waiting for the game to load itself before freaking out and, lash out at it.

Because, for me it does, actually, load and start but, at a very slow pace. It's the O.S.'s fault. Has a serious problem at accepting the much older Direct X file's graphical decoding matrix. The exact same problem happens to every other game that does not agree on using the minimum requirement of Win. 10 Home/Pro Editions' Direct X 11 or 12 or, bust.

Thx for the answers.

I didnt upgrade the video card(RX 480). I've done everything I guess.

Before the pc-upg, steam always asked 32 or 64-bit on launch. Not anymore..

YES the game is not so good but what else I could play..?

HOMM6 is the worst one and I have been played V like a decade and it's enough.

There's other games with which you can scratch that TBS itch. For example Age of Wonders 3, Civilization 5/6, Endless Legend, or if you're into space strategy then Stellaris. There's no reason to limit yourself to just the Heroes franchise, especially not with the latest games being the way they are, you're missing out.

Yes, h7 is a universal success and so is Win10. Seriously now, can't you just face reality?
