The Wine .dll files work very well indeed. But not with integrated Intel graphics.
I had the same issue with DH 1.3 in Windows 10 after the registry fix. I've solved this problem by right clicking on Darkest Hour.exe, then under Properties choose "Disable DPI Scaling". I did the same with the Launcher, just to be sure. Then i start the game via the Launcher as Administrator and it runs. However, it's still pretty laggy.I'm getting problems from Windows 10 also (Win 7 worked perfectly), when first started resolution seems to be messed up and doesn't load properly plus game somehow ends up in lower right corner with part of the interface being unavailable:

Doing regedit method (other made things even worse) solves resolution problems and game is back to 1920x1080 and in upper left corner BUT parts of the screens at bottom and right are missing and showing desktop instead also it is impossible to scroll down (and again part of UI is unavailable).

But at lest in game screenshot with F11 works fine.

Attempting to use windowed results in a crash:
I did manage to make game run windowed in low resolution but that is hardly playable.

When I open Darkest Hour in windows 10 it prompts me to install soething called DirectPlay, if I try to do so it fails, and if I cancel the game gets stuck in the loadscreen with the main menu music playing... any tips?
thanks, this fixed the problem!I found a way with WineD3D for AMD users.
This is the latest version and it seemed to have worked with my AMD graphics card. Just place them in the Darkest Hour folder. No need to chance the color or anything else. It should boot up after a few seconds and it seems to be working just like the original
EDIT: you can launch it from the launcher as well.
Problems so far:
-Mouse lag ONLY IN MENU but it works fine in-game
-Text in diplomacy tab is shaking
-The mouse lag returns when using the economy tab (I haven't seen it on any other tab) but once you exit the tab it goes back to normal

I used the "staging version"
Nooo, you must wait a little bit. I know it sounds ridiculous but you must wait and then it works.
EDIT: Roughly ~15 seconds then it should work.
EDIT 2: With this package http://www.mediafire.com/download/wloe1fjsbboojko/WineD3D+184.108.40.206z (also copy and paste it into the Darkest Hour library, just delete the dxgi.dll) you can fully enjoy the game and also alt-tab out of the game
