    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 i am 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 (mirror).

    2) Install Test Drive Unlimited Patch 1.66A TDU_PC_Patch_166A.zip (unmodified, see alternative DLs)

    3) apply no-CD crack that is made for v. 1.66A: htd-tdu6.zip (VirusTotal clean, unmodified, see alternative DLs)
    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
    In the savegame folder have to be also file ProfileList.dat . If you don't 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, because stock exe file will 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.
