Hey everyone, glad to join the community of gangsters. So I want to install the game however when window pops up and i press install button nothing happens, I was wondering maybe windows 10 has something to do with that? Anyways thanks in advance.

Hey and welcome to Mafiascene!

Could be that Windows' 10 framework isn't compatible with Mafia 1's autorunner. Try executing the CD as an administrator or see if you can execute the installer itself like that which is located on the disk, to bypass the autorunner.

As a sidenote. Although a little unorthodox, I believe plenty of us nowadays simply download it from the Pirate Bay. The game is abandonware now so a pirated version of this game is now tolerated. It also installs faster and most importantly, it saves you from having to use your -now rather brittle- CD's. It also includes a crack to remove the necessity of having CD 1 inserted when starting the game and is fully compatible with any mods we make.
I think it's morally justified if you've bought the game anyway.

Ignore any safety warnings. That's just a silly result of all the anti-piracy campaigns to scare people off which are well intended, but damn useless.

You can always try the manual install Mugshot wrote:

Manual install

But if you own the game, there's no harm in downloading it.
