    I get this error in S7 - The Paths to a Kingdom aswell. In S7 - History Edition all works well, but there are no players in Multiplayer to find... It has to do with the latest security update for Windows 10. Disabling Windows Firewall, Antivirus, App & Browser Control and turning off Exploit Protection Settings enables Multiplayer back, but leaves your system uprotected.
