    Windows Vista 32 bit and Test Drive Unlimited 1 (TDU1)?

    Windows Vista 32 bit and TDU1? It not worked for me, but maybe it will work for you.

    1. Install TDU1 (more details on how to do it in W10 tutorial)
    2. instal 1.66 patch & project paradise launcher (or the TDU Platinum pack which does both)
    3. at this time, game not launching - the black screen pop up for a second and disappear
    4. i may see error of missing d3d9_43.dll, i see i have only d3d9.dll. renaming does not help
    5. when i duck.com that error, i read that i need to install direct x redist (i found "DirectX End-User Runtime") so i DL and install it from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=35
    6. i rename d3d9_43.dll back to d3d9.dll and try again, now i see TDU paradise launcher shows error that the TDU stopped working:

    Přečtěte si prohlášení o zásadách ochrany osobních údajů:
    It says the d3d9.dll is faulty module. When i click Start menu, type "dxdiag" hit enter, i see i am using DirectX 10 not 9. Is problem that game says to support DirectX9 and i have DX10? Should i downgrade somehow?

    I tried Windows XP compatibility mode & run as admin for both apps (launcher and TDU executable) already.

    Is problem graphic card drivers? I see that my Windows device manager recognizes Standard graphical adapter VGA and in details says device can not be launched, code 10. Also i see my GPU developer has only Windows 7+ drivers on their site and the graphic card is said to be supported only on 64bit Windows 7 or higher and i am having lower Windows and 32 bit :-(
