    How to run TDU1 on Windows 10



    It can be tricky to run Test Drive Unlimited 1 on the Windows 10 OS because TDU1 DVD is claimed to use SecuROM v7 kind of protection.
    And Windows 10 do not support SecuROM if im correct.
    As my laptop do not have DVD ROM, i tried many CD grabbers/image creators to create image that i will mount as virtual DVD ROM and play the game. But no luck, it always failed thanks to SecuROM.

    Workarounds:

    a) install lower version of the Windows (Dual boot) and run TDU on lower version of the Windows
    b) apply the no CD cr*ack into the TDU directory
    c) do not play TDU1

    Play TDU1 on Windows 10:

    1) Install game thru physical DVD or .iso image mounted as virtual DVD ROM & install mega pack, serials.

    2) Install Test Drive Unlimited Patch 1.66A TDU_PC_Patch_166A.zip (unmodiffied, just backup, alternative DLs)

    3) apply no-CD crack that is made for v. 1.66A: htd-tdu6.zip (VirusTotal clean, unmodiffied, just backup)
    replacing original TDU1 .exe file located in Program Files / Atari / Test Drive Unlimited

    4) copy your TDU1 online profile folder into C:\Users\YOURUSERAMEHERE\Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame\YOYURNICKNAME
    Iin the savegame folder have to be also file ProfileList.dat . If you dont have profile, you will create new in game.

    5) apply Project Paradise if you want to play online multiplayer: http://forum.turboduck.net/threads/29561-test-drive-unlimited-project-paradise-v003a-public-beta-available

    6) launch "TDU - Project Paradise Launcher" exe file as stock exe file will fail fail to connect new TDU1 multiplayer server/s

    7) select your existing online profile in the game (if not have one, create new). Confirm that the nickname is invalid. Tick the tickbox of GameSpy. Do NOT touch/modify your email and password. And execute. Profile should be loaded and you be on the Hawai along with other players all around the world ).

    Not sure what is a PP and what means "not running", what are symptoms and what exactly happening. Try with and without afterburner.
