    Last week I downloaded the old spider man 2 game that used to work quite perfectly in my Windows XP but now its showing LockRect failed and device lost errors. Screenshot included Screenshot (1).png . I tried changing the compatability mode to XP. But it still shows the same error. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?

    Is this a fresh installation of Windows? Windows 10 is less compatible with older games. Also you can try installing Direct X i think sometimes this can solve.
