    Call of Duty 2 Single Player not starting


    I recently bought a CD copy of COD2 from goodwill and installed it on my Windows 10 computer. After install, I tried to run the single player, but once I clicked the Desktop shortcut, nothing would happen. No error message, just a UAC prompt. Multiplayer works just fine with Windows XP sp 3 compatibility mode settings, so I don't understand why Single Player won't even start.

    Things I've already tried:
    Every compatibility mode setting available.
    Going to the file location and changing the settings there.
    Installing old versions of DirectX.
    Running as Admin.

    You could try to disable DEP, but then you would also have to disable secure boot in BIOS, etc.

    Google: "call of duty 2 no-cd crack", that might help (Gameburnworld). Steam uses those as well.

    Hi Ryan, the only way I've been able to play it on Win10 is to purchase it from Steam. Steam circumvents the SecureROM copy protection. If you have a Win7 PC you use Tairiku Okami's advice about the "No CD" thing. It circumvents SecureROM and is legit as long as you purchased the game.

    Thanks! I downloaded a fixed exe and now the game runs!
