Key points

The DVD-based version of Myst IV attempts to install Safedisc DRM on a computer. This will prevent the game from running on Windows 10. Install patches from Ubisoft before attempting to play or launch the game.
A no CD crack is required to play under latest Windows. Warning - website has a lot of ads. Use the "hoodlum" patch to remove Safedisc. These NoCD patches are quietly accepted/allowed by Ubisoft moderators,[citation needed] since they never released a patch to the game to remove the Safedisc.
Game will not launch without administrator permissions on Windows.[citation needed]

Essential improvements[edit]

Universal installer[edit]

For the Mac, there is a "universal" installer that makes a hybrid native + wineskin version of the game. The game runs native on 10.5 and earlier (PowerPC, runs through Rosetta on intel Macs) and Wineskin on 10.6 and later.
