How to run TDU1 on Windows 10
Windows Vista 32 bit and Test Drive Unlimited 1 (TDU1)?

The tutorial on how i installed the Test Drive Unlimited 1 (TDU1) online gaming on Windows 7 64bit and it WORKED

I have stock DVD, but there are also .iso etc. images that can be mounted using Alcohol 52 software.

- I have installed SDIO and updated all drivers, especialy graphic adapter (which should support Windows 7 64bit and DirectX 9 in order to install drivers and run TDU).
- Installed Net Framework 4 (unsure if necessary) and restarted computer.
- Installed game launched OK. So i quit it and continue:
- After adding Paradise launcher .exe and d3d9.dll into game directory (per the instructions in, game not started, nothing appeared but process was running so i had to kill it via Windows Task manager.
- I launched "TDU_PC_Patch_166A - Test Drive Unlimited Patch 1.66A.exe". Then game (launched via "TDU - Project Paradise Launcher.exe") saying: "A required security module cannot be activated. This program cannot be executed (5024). Please have a look at ... securom ...".
- That error is related to some protection in regards to CD/DVD rom so i coppied the cracked .exe to my game directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited). Crack is from the Hatred crack team, archive: (VirusTotal clean, unmodified, see alternative DLs) and launched "TDU - Project Paradise Launcher.exe" and it launched immediately (i selected Big bnk during launch).
- I created new offline profile and i am driving successfuly. Now how to use my already built profile from the past times. I quit the game. Go to C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents\Test Drive Unlimited, rename savegame to savegame_ and paste savegame with my own old profile. Note that there are savegames to DL on the net possibly, but you can also start a new profile from the game.
- I can now use my offline profile, but when i switch to online one, it seems to connect the server and when i click to Continue game, the game stop working and i can only close the program:

- i have found that my savegame (C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents\Test Drive Unlimited) was possibly somehow badly modified by my previous attempts to make the game working, so i renamed the savegame folder and copied over my fresh savegame backup, that did it and all working.
