ChaosLauncher offers better compability, speeds, no problem with color, windows mode, graphics not enchanced.
StarCraft HD offers better visual graphics with few bugs. Can zoom in or zoom out, it's HD version when its full zoom out, but colors sometimes broken at menu screen, but the colors in-game will be okay.
IN CASE YOU STILL CANNOT MAKE THIS WORKING, MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS!Search this two files:
Right click on that -> Properties -> Compatibility tab
