Bejeweled 3 is incompatible with Windows 10. It works fine in Windows 7, and work fine in Windows 10 if installed on Windows 7 before upgrading. Noticed that Netflix doesn't work with Edge, either: I get error H7361-1253-80070005. Netflix works fine in Chrome with Windows 10. I can't edit comments in Facebook with Edge, but can in Chrome, as well. Any images in Facebook chat come up as black boxes in high contrast mode, too. Bejeweled 2 works fine in Windows 10. Aside from these minor annoyances, I like Windows 10, much better cmd and shell.

Now it isn't allowed to open on the upgrade. I paid cash to Popcap to buy the game years ago, and have had it ever since, with the original eula. It's annoying for Windows to say we don't own it any more, because they want us to pay for it again to play online. I got the game to play without needing the internet to do so, like while waiting fof a big update or download. Isn't Windows 10 an upgrade? It acts like more of a sales tool, or in this case, manipulation tool.

I think it will probably more to do with DRM (digital rights management). I seem to remember an article from a while ago about windows 10 and older games.. Oh I even posted about it ..lol
Why some older games won't run on Windows 10

No, not the problem either. I even went as far as trying to repurchase the silly game just to get rid of the issue, at MSN.com where it is for sale. (aha) and it wouldn't let me BUY it. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

It's listed on the official list as 'playable.' I bought Bejeweled(R) 3GH 1.0 - gh_20101119143650
I initially downloaded Bejeweled from Popcap, Bejeweled 2 is the earlier version, it works fine in Windows 10, I bought Bejeweled 2 on disk. Windows 10 Games Compatibility List

I noted on Steam forums that Bejeweled 3 works fine on Windows 10 if it's installed from a CD. I just dragged and dropped the game folder, as I downloaded it years ago. Works great on Windows 7.

2017 Bejewel 3 was running fine under Windows 10 until about a week ago. Now it is slow to boot and slow in between levels.

Try either re-installing Bejeweled or running something like Malwarebytes to see any malware has crept in.

This is a free version that I have used for years. No problems with Malwarebyts. Same issue with Chrom or Firefax.

8/10/2017 -Was runningn fine 2 days ago, in Windows 10, could be another bug in another Windows 10 update. Things like this have happened before.
