I mean, it wouldn't be as simple as making sure it runs on Windows 10 due to different features that Windows 10 has which ReactOS, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 doesn't have.

Right, so either test on XP or make sure not to use any of the NT 6+ API features.

Develop for Server 2003 / Windows XP and it should work.
If not, this is a bug in ReactOS and should be fixed in ReactOS.
