I first tried to make it work directly on windows 10, without success. First, I had the same problem of freezing when installing fonts, that I could fix by going to task manager and stopping several tasks until it worked (razer synapse, overwolf, etc...). It seems that these tasks are in conflict with the font installation. However, even after the game was installed, it instantly crashed, no matter which compatibility parameters or which directX version I used. Maybe changing my GPU driver to a much older version could work, but I don't want to mess with my computer too much.
I therefore tried to install a windows XP virtual machine, first with VirtualBox and later with VMware. With VirtualBox it did not work (D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE (I think it's because the virtual display driver of virtualBox is not compatible with some older directX functions). With VMware however, after installing windows XP and installing the game on it, it worked instantly (I didn't even have to install directX as it already comes with windows XP).
TL;DR: if you really want to play that game on a recent computer, I advise you to use VMware, install windows XP on it, tweak the settings to make it smooth (increase virtual machine CPUs, memory, etc...) and then install the game on it.
