Myst Online works fine on W10, but you have to install d3dx9_27.dll manually, which is a bit trickier than it needs to be. The best solution would be for the maintainers to add it to the install package, but it works OK to do it by hand. As far as I can make out Microsoft's enthusiasm for Win10 has broken the download page that's generally referred to in this regard (turning it into a Win10 download page), but you can find it elsewhere on the MS downloads site. You need to download directx_Jun2010_redist.exe from there. (Try https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... px?id=8109, but given history that could change) . Then run the .exe to unpack it into a long list of .cab files. The .cab you want is Aug2005_d3dx9_27_x86.cab. Note that the spelling of the .cab names is inconsistent, so it sorts to the middle of the list but not where you'd immediately expect it. You can open the .cab in File Explorer and copy the one DLL to where you installed the game. At that point it will launch (and probably immediately download and install PhysX).

There is a working DirectX installer that suits Win10 linked from this earlier post: viewtopic.php?p=420405#p420405

Thanks, you are correct that there is a DX installer, and I had missed it. That addressed the jumping problem in the other thread. The posting you refer to links to the same site I mentioned.
