This Link Allows you to play the game and overwrite the No CD .exe file given with this download on any version of windows.
To do this, type the following commands at an elevated command prompt. You should press Enter after
you type each command.
To disable the driver's service, type the following command:
sc config secdrv start= disabled
To set the driver's service to manual, type the following command:
sc config secdrv start= demand
To enable the driver's service (and to set it to automatic), type the following command:
sc config secdrv start=auto
To manually start the driver's service, type the following command:
sc start secdrv
To manually stop the driver's service, type the following command:
sc stop secdrv
Here is another good explanation of required steps.

Very rich Easter egg content. Love the smuggling and missions fighting the rouge factions. many advanced weapons to be found on abandoned spacecraft, hidden worm holes for fast travel. No matter the age, the immersive setting of this game is unmatched.

Freelancer is one of my all time favorite games. I have played the original version from beginning to end many times varying how I played the free build up time and how I played the after game. Some of the mods have been great for changing even the campaign making it more challenging and spicing it up with different ships. After all these years, I still keep coming back to play the campaign about once a year. I hope I can get it to run on my latest platform.

Downloaded, followed Read Me instructions to install no cd exe and patches. Working as intended with Windows 10 OS. Pure nostalgia. Amazing game for it time. Had a hiccup with first mission where I lost mouse and keyboard control, but restarted game and all is well.

Thanks for this upload , it works perfect !!
The hardest part was installing deamon tools lite , that took over 1.5 hours .
But now i play one of the finest games with much joy .

@ Ryan P
I Googled that problem, and found a "fix". It's a bit complex. But try reading this link.

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately it didn't. DirectPlay was already active on my PC. I'm tempted to resurrect my old desktop that I used to play this game years ago. Not likely to work after all this time, but maybe it will. My other option is to buy a 3D capable video card.

If Freelancer can't start, fx. in Win10, then go to Control Panel, find Programs and Functions, click "Turn Windows functions On or Off".
Find Legacy Components, and enable "DirectPlay".
Hope this will work for you :)

Can't get it to run on Win 10. "Freelancer did not detect a 3D capable video card in your system"
I didn't have a 3D card on my old computer which was 7-8 years older than this one.

Its one of the best Space trader sims, despite its shortcomings.
BUT, can't get this version to work on Win10, and I have used the crack etc.
