I installed NR2003, then I installed Patch, then I installed No-CD .exe from this site. Booted up, but when I pressed 'drive' it crashed. So I disabled secure boot in BIOS, then I disabled DEP through command prompt, booted up the game, but when I pressed 'drive' it crashed again. I have rebooted my PC and tried it dozens of times, reinstalled NR 2003 twice and tried different update links, nothing works. I have gotten many old games to run before on my computer (GPL, F1 Challenge-VB, GTR2, rfactor, etc.), most with dozens of mods, but this NR2003 has me stumped.

Check some of the other posts in this help section, go get the Hobo Racing "no-cd" exe, works with win 10.

I've read through several and I am using the Hobo Racing "No-cd" exe, linked from one of the posts on this site, doesn't help my issue. (And yes, I removed the original .exe)

You have to do the comparability thing, as Windows 7 since that's what the patch was made for and run as admin, this information is posted several times in this forum, I'm not putting you down here, I just know I've typed this several times.

I think we need a sticky on the does and don't on how to get NR2003 to run on various Windows systems.

I have already tried every compatibility setting, including Windows 7, still crashes when I hit 'drive'. I have not had a single issue booting up the game, but it always crashes on 'drive' even with the Hobo Racing "No-cd" .exe, admin rights, and windows 7 compatiblity. I just tried it again to be sure, and it crashed once again.
