Stop the presses! I managed to get it to work eventually. Apparently, I thought that I had turned off the firewall. As it turned out, not completely. :-)

Huh, this fix is still not working for me. I've turned off my Windows firewall completely and still all I get is the little think circle for about 3 seconds then nothing.

1- Have you disabled DEP compatibility mode for Magic.exe?
Note: You must have administrator access to do this

Go to My computer > Right click it and click Properties
At the left part of your window click > remote setttings
Click the Advanced Tab
Under Performance > Click Settings (the uppermost most button)
Now Click the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) tab
Select
o Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select

click add, and browse your Magic Folder(Game installation folder) and select Magic.exe.


2- If the above doesn't work try to deactivate your anti-virus, too or better before that put in the exception list of your anti-virus ManalinkEh.dll, ManalinkEx.dll and CSV2dat.exe and see if that will work.

Have you also switched off the Windows Defender Smartscreen? My mistake was to kill the firewall, thinking it was the only thing the doctor ordered.

If you go to the Windows Defender Security Center, there are five links to click. The one second from the right is called App & webreader control (roughly translated from Swedish). If you enter, the first function you will find is Check apps & files (again loosely translated). Switching that one off, did the trick for me.

Hope it helps!

Still nothing. I've done all of the above and still Magic.exe doesn't want to run. I have no clue what else to do. Shandalar and the deckbuilder run fine, I just can't get anywhere to use the new cards. So frustrating.

Alas, I too have the Win10 problem on my new laptop.
I copied the (working) game folder from my old Win7 desktop - didn't work. Downloaded this version - didn't work. Tried all the fixes I could find here in SM - didn't work. Every time I get the 'thinking circle', then nothing.

Didn't realise how much I'd miss it :/

Maybe turn off DEP for all programs and select DEP only for windows programs?
