How to play Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Windows

Read Full Instructions

The game with NoDVD has been tested on Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10, works fine, the game supports widescreen. Check our Guide and Notes for more details

Install & play guide:

  • Mount the disc image. You will need the utility for mounting disc image files, like WinCDEmu, UltraISO, Alcohol 52%/Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools Lite
  • Install the game (if autorun doesn't work - simply launch the installation from Setup.exe inside the disc)
  • Also it is recommended to install DirectX from the disc (if you're using Windows 10 - enable DirectPlay, read this or this guide how to do it)
  • (At the end of installation you will message "Please insert Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa installation disc" - just un-mount the disc from virtual drive (right click -> Eject) then click OK. The game will be installed fine)
  • After you installed the game - install NoDVD (simply copy Mad2.exe from the archive and put it into game folder, agree to replace original file)
  • Open the directory with the game and find Mad2.exe. Right click on Mad2.exe - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows XP or Vista" and "Run as administrator"
  • Launch the game and play. If the game doesn't work in compatibility mode with Windows XP - try to launch it in compatibility mode with other version of Windows (Win98, Windows ME, Win2000, etc.)


  • If the installation doesn't start - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (98, 2000 or XP)
  • If you want to uninstall the game - mount the disc image in virtual drive and run Setup.exe. For unknown reason you can't delete the game through Windows Control Panel, the uninstaller is broken
  • NoDVD is required for the launch because the game is using SecuROM DRM protection, which doesn't work on modern systems. That NoDVD "breaks" DRM protection and allows the game to work on modern systems
  • It is recommended to install old versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for the correct work of the game
  • Also it is recommended to install RAD Video Tools and K-Lite Codec Pack for the correct work of in-game videos
  • The game works on DirectX 9, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • Some users complain that they cannot beat the Moto Diving Event. It happens because the controls were converted very poorly from gamepad to keyboard. You probably will have to make several tries to finish it, check this and this thread for advice
  • For users of Windows 64-bit systems: if the game doesn't work after you launched it - open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del by default) and check for processes Mad2.exe and rundll32.exe. Close Mad2.exe but don't touch rundll32.exe (it's a Windows app for running old apps from 32-bit operational systems, most old games running through rundll32.exe). Now try to launch the game again, it must work. Don't forget to close rundll32.exe process in Task Manager after finishing playing
