Nascar Racing 2003 Season by Papyrus no longer works after anniversary update RRS feed

  • Question

  • NR2003 was working just fine with Windows 10 using Windows XP compatibility. After the anniversary update was installed the program is listed as incompatible by the compatibility troubleshooter. I've tried every setting available with the compatibility troubleshooter but nothing works. Why is this program suddenly incompatible when it was working just fine prior to the anniversary update?

  • Hi,

    From my experience, after installing a cumulative update, some programs/games need to be reinstalled. Kindly reinstall Nascar Racing 2003 Season in the compatibility mode and run it as Administrator to see the result.

    Also, Running this command in command prompt as administrator

    bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

    If above methods fail, it should be a compatibility issue, because Windows 10 1607 version makes an improvement on security, which cause this game can’t run. If you want to play it, roll back to previous version or install a VM seems to make sense.
