Im sure some others have suggestions for how to get the IPLounge for this setup to work. In short, due to the lack of registry entries, the IP Lounge installer Expansion Pack does not work for this setup. A potential work around is to install NFS HS on my XP VM and then exporting the registries into my windows 10 system, so that the expansion pack will install correctly on windows 10. The official NFS IV installer does not work with any of the generic compatibility options. My other potential option is to create an application compatibility config setup for the installer. But for now.....

how I got NFS IV High Stakes to work on windows 10

Copy DATA and SAVEDATA directories from the NFS4 CD to Need For Speed IV High Stakes

copy the nfs4_modern_patch files to Need For Speed IV High Stakes and over write.
https://veg.by/en/projects/nfs4/

install of High Stakes IP Lounge installer Expansion Pack Installer file called NFS_HS_EP_Setup_V4.0_(1.78).exe
say yes to many errors then the choose options will come up.
for the IP Lounge EP installer, add:
mercury / 1mbyte error patch
enable movies
some of the options maybe overkill, the installer will also run into issues because NFS HS was not officially installed, so the installer will fail install, due to many missing registry keys including the nfshs.exe that is installed, but the options work, the cars work
say yes to any other installer errors and yes to install anything else the installer suggest to add

manually copy the IP Lounge installer Expansion Pack installed files from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Need for Speed to the Need For Speed IV High Stakes and over write.

When need to launch the game next time, launch the modern patch nfs4.exe file, not the ip lounge updated nfshs.exe

set the "Options"/"Graphics" to 1600 x 1200
do not enable triple buffer under "Options"/"Graphics"/"Advanced settings"., otherwise the game may end up crashing with an AMF=5 screen.c(563) error.
to fix this, youll need to delete the file SaveData\config.dat, run and reconfigure the game.

NOTE:
the IPLounge client does not work in this setup, but you get the HS Mixer, and the extra cars, track changer, plus the HOSS updated menu system in the game.
