It's a very long time since I last used CFS2. I've forgotten most of what I once knew about it so can't be much help.
However, CFS2 & CFS1
have always worked well on my Windows 10 64-bit laptop. Like hertzie I have more than one version of CFS2 installed but can't remember if I installed them from the CDs or copied them from a different PC. I do know that they won't run on Win 10 without installing the appropriate No-CD patch.
I just fired up CFS2 on my laptop to check it out. Here's a couple of shots to prove it still works on Win 10.

I suspect the problem could be with your graphics card or CFS2 display settings. Mine works fine as you can see from the above shot.
