Populous: The Beginning - Origin, Invalid license. Missing DLL [weanetr.dll]

★★★★ Newbie

OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit

Tried:

- Changing compatibility to XP SP3

- Running directly from the folder (just re-opens in Origin)

- Running as administrator

- Changing colour settings to 256 colours

 

Brand new i5 256gb SSD 8gb RAM Surface Book with GPU - I think it should be powerful enough to run it...

 

Pls help.

 

Exact wording of error: Invalid license. Reason code = Missing DLL: [weanetr.dll] Error: 0x5 

 

Purchased via EA today - forced to download Origin, downloaded via POPTB via Origin.
