Since my old computer decided to die, I now have a new one. One that has Windows 10 eek . I'm currently getting everything back to running, but I now have an issue with JA2.

The game requires a colour depth of 16bpp. On the old machine, I simply set that for my system, which worked fine (apart from Origin deciding to not accept that without even a hint, which made tracking that bug a tad harder than it had to be). It seems I can no longer do that in Win10. I can solve that by setting the compatibility option on the exe, but that does not work when I try to start a new instance from VS2017. I can start the exe by hand and then attach the debugger to it, but that is not only unwieldy, it would mean I would be unable to debug stuff happening at the very beginning of an exe start... like reading xmls.

So my question is: how can I start a fresh compiled debug exe from VS on Windows 10?

Edit: To clarify, I am not talking about applying the win10 fix .dlls (they don't affect this issue, and make airspace look weird) or the registry fix, which has to be run for every exe, which is unreasonable if one builds different exes for several build locations.
I am also not referring to the 'set cpu affinity fix', as this isn't the issue here.

Saren threw his head back and screamed in impotent fury, before falling to his throne, head in his claws, trembling in horrified disbelief.

Then he heard a faint chime as Sovereign subscribed to her ECHO channel.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.
