From GOG.com as of April 3, 2017.
Download, standalone installation.
Without modification, it freezes and crashes immediately. However, after renaming a file in the game's installation folder from SDNXLFonts.dll to SDNXLFonts.old, the game boots and seems to start normally. The intro video plays. Background music plays. Starting a new game works.
What does not
The fonts look a bit weird but they are readable.
What was not tested
Saving a game, playing past the tutorial.
The issue with the font DLL file also affects at least one of the publisher's other games, Fallen Enchantress. https://forums.stardock.com/446630
