Tutorial: Running LEGO Creator: Harry Potter on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10

Hi everyone. This is my first tutorial so you'll have to bear with. I recently managed to get LEGO Creator: Harry Potter fully running on my Windows 10 laptop. I've recorded what I did and I have attached the video below. I have also provided screenshots to help with those who can't get through my confusing video I recorded. Hope this helps those who couldn't get it running. You will need a Microsoft Agent simulation device. I used Double Agent, a freeware that works well. I've linked it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/doubleagent/.  It'll update as and when.


1. Install LEGO Creator: Harry Potter using these compatibility settings:



2. Download and install Double Agent:




You need to ensure that the bottom 2 have installed. If the 64 bit exe didn't work try the 86 bit exe.


3. Finally change your compatibility settings to match this on your desktop shortcut for the game:



I also used dgvoodoo to make it 1920x1080 but didn't make any config changes. You should find it all works.


A video will be coming soon.

I remember having a similar problem as this when I first installed. Run your lchp setup in XP compatibility. Uninstall Double Agent then run that in normal compatibility. Make sure that everything on that options screen is installed.

I have a question.


I have double agent installed, LC Harry Potter launches, however the game stays constantly on a black screen that says "Lego Creator Harry Potter" and doesn't go further. Any advice how to fix that?
