The DRM check is basic, when I'm trying to reset Windows by keeping my files and after then, opening the game, it prompts a message how the game is a incomplete installation installing through directory, when I click OK, it exits. Resetting Windows will also delete this registry for installing the game. When using the no CD check does not fix. Please, does anyone have any tips on how I can fix it?

Making multiple installs: Create new empty folder next to your main game folder - if your main install is "Papyrus/NASCAR Racing 2003 Season"
create new folder "Papyrus/NASCAR Racing 2003 Season_1" and then copy and paste everything from "Papyrus/NASCAR Racing 2003" to "Papyrus/NASCAR Racing 2003 Season_1".
That's it. You have a new separate install. You can do this multiple times and make more installs - like "Papyrus/NASCAR Racing 2003 Season_2"
"Papyrus/NASCAR Racing 2003 Season_3"
and so on.

Tried on my racing PC which has Windows 11 and the no/cd patch didn't work (Not on mine anyway) Still had to disable dep to get it to work.
I also tried making multiple copies for different mods, but I couldn't get DT to mount multiple copies. Is it possible or do you need the Zip file for multiple installs?

NoahMotionz 2023-02-22 1 point

Installation Instructions Feb 2023 Windows 10
You'll need something like Daemon Tools to Mount the ISO first of all.
After mounting click install and type in the CD key and wait till done.
Everything has to be done in the right order or it won't work.
If you copy the exe over first, the patch won't recognize it and will close.
So, first run the patch and then run the fix.
Once that's all done copy the NOCD NR2003.exe in to the NR2003 folder and overwrite the original.
Thats it, Have Fun

Gitchimo 2022-11-03 0 point

So I hit the button and only got part of my comment...
Okay, the game is working in Win 10 great. Just follow the install advise that is repeated by quite a few commenters and you shouldn't have any issues(much)!
My Specs:
Processor AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2600 Six-Core Processor 3.40 GHz
Installed RAM 32.0 GB
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

GPU: Nvidia Gforce 1660 6gb
And yes... Watch yer six Ross Chastain! (and kudos to you my good sir) was doin that stunt before GameCube! :)

Everyone keep in mind that this game installs two drivers which can randomly cause Blue Screen of Death on your PC as these drivers somehow try to corrupt the system. The drivers name: papycpu2.sys and papyjoy.sys.

Regarding what AWESOMEGAMER said, you actually type bcedit without the .exe at the end in Windows 10.

AwesomeGAMER 2020-10-27 -1 point

NR2003 Patch:
NR2003 No CD Patch:
Type command prompt: bcdedit.exe /set nx AlwaysOff

We're will fix the game crashed (You will get your fucking blood on cockpit).

For Windows 7 you may need dgVoodoo2 or nGlide200 to allow it to run and look good. Once you get it running you can go to : for some additional enhancement files.

If you look in the right places, there are more solid copies of NR2003 that can be downloaded and used, seems MyAbandonware's version has flaws. I do not use this copy of the game and got mine elsewhere, however, I will give you instructions that should allow to play the game.

If you're using an iso, just get WinCDEmu, a very simple not shady program that makes virtual iso drives, works like a charm. After mounting, run the installer, or if you really want to, run autorun and then open the installer for that burst of nostalgia when it comes to getting a new game from the 2000s.

Run the installer like normal, when you get to the much needed key, there is a universal one that is in all copies.


Continue through installation like normal, now, when you get the game, don't run it yet, you need the nocd patch. Grab the nocd exe file and drop it into the nr2003 folder, allow it it overwrite, or you could keep the cd exe for whatever reason. Also install both patches, the and its fix.

There are one or two final hoop(s) you must go through to start the game. Depending on the OS, you must go over to compatibility settings and set it to Windows XP, on modern systems, the game will shut down right after the cut scenes. If you're still having issues, you may have to disable Data Execution Prevention, also known as DEP, which may require you to enter the BIOS and turn it off.

Bing bang boom, NR2003 is now modable and for your gaming pleasure.

This does not work. No instructions, and just says no files for this no files for that etc etc. Someone help

WMMeans 2019-06-23 2 points

I've downloaded and redownloaded this file like ten times and every single time the game won't run because of some missing .dill files.

Dave33333 2019-06-01 2 points

This game was Papyrus' swan song to NASCAR after EA Sports got the exclusive rights to the sport. In retaliation, Papyrus released the popular patch that allowed you to mod the game as you please. Since then, NR2003 is still used widely to this day and is figured more of a free version of iRacing since the source code is the core of it. The modding community, while somewhat infamous, is what keeps this game alive. EA would throw away their license after 2009, 6 years later after releasing more and more disappointing releases since NASCAR Thunder 2004.

For any racing fan, and any guy who likes making art and tinkering around with game code, this is the game for you, this game is bar none compared to the rest. Have fun with this game, I enjoy it immensely.

Clyde3D 2019-04-15 3 points

Ok this is Fun! Patch the game first (1201) then use the CD patch (1201) for it. Ignore the 1.0 version NOCD file! Nglide ( is how you then get it to work on Win7 and up.

John 2019-03-05 2 points

I still have the CD for this game. I made the Duff Beer car in Photoshop and used to drive that when racing. Even all the small stickers on the car were products from The Simpsons (Laramie, Lard lad, etc.)
