Does Neon work in Windows 10?

I was able to download and install Neon 1.0.2531.0 on my Windows 10 Machine. Now, when I try to run it or reinstall it, it closes immediately.
Sometimes I can see the box where it requests to become my default browser; sometimes it does not. In any case, it is not there long enough for me to react to it. I tried changing my antivirus program; no help.

It installs and works fine for me on Windows 10 64-bit OS Version 1909 (Build 18363.657).
Use JSONedit to edit "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Neon\User Data\Local State" while Neon is closed.
Under root, create a
hardware_acceleration_modeobject (if it's not already there). Then, under the "hardware_acceleration_mode" object, create a boolean named
enabled(if it isn't already there), set it to false and save your changes. Then, start Neon and see if it works better.
Or, modify Neon's shortcut to pass
--disable-gpu-compositing(see here) to neon.exe. If that works, you can go into Neon's advanced settings and disable hardware accelleration so you don't need to use the command-line switch. You could also go to
chrome://flagsand tweak things there (like the "Override software rendering list" flag).
