Thanks for all these marvellous games!
I've successfully installed it into my Windows 8.1 64-bit laptop. Game runs smooth after everything done as shown below, I put here for it could be helpful to other similar users.
1- Download all files given on this page.
2- Extract the game .zip and get the .BIN file of the game and convert it into .ISO file by any suitable ISO creation tool. I've used MagicISO unregistered (free).
3- Using RAR or 7ZIP, extract the contents of .ISO file to any convenient folder on your HardDisk drive.
4- On the extraction folder, find SETUP.exe, make it Admin rights, and optionally make it compatible with WinXP-Sp2 (or Sp3), and RUN the setup and continue as usual. If asked, the CD-KEY is: 8249-7EE3-84EW-TXGT (given by JERRY FRIEND below).
5- For running te game without CD, you install all the missing directories from the extraction folder into the installation folder. Names of the folders are already provided by THE SWEDE 's comment below.
6- Apply the downloaded PATCH, again in admin and compatibility modes.
7- Replace the NFSHP2.EXE file on the game installation directory with the one provided by No-CD.zip file as downloaded as EXTRAS file.
8- Again make everything ADMIN rights and WinXp-sp2 compatibile (other modes may also work).
9- FINALLY: Game runs successfully, but there's a graphics problem making it hard to play the game for which I found the following solution : on the game OPTIONS menu, go to GRAPHICS and reduce the EFFECTS from the maximum setting to anywhere convenient, (I've just reduced it by one tick), I've also set the resolution to 1366 x 768 to fit my full screen native resolution. Then the game runs smooth with no problems! That's it... Thank you again.

Paul's instructions did it for me! Thanks!

Hello, the installation is not corrupted when it installs only 49MB of files, You have to account for that this is a game from a time when HDD space was scarce, and most games worked on the principle of partial install, while running video files, music etc from their respective CD. However, to get a no-CD patch to work you need to have all the game files on your HDD. Shoutout to Paul below for the very detailed instructions.

Paul 2020-03-22 11 points

Below are steps I took to get get this running on Windows 10 (updated, as of 22nd March 2020). For some background, the setup.exe initially did not do anything (even if I had run it as admin from a separate folder), and once I got that working, the installation was broken.

1. Mount the image ("Need-for-Speed-Hot-Pursuit-2_Win_EN_ISO-Version") using Daemon Tools Lite or something similar. The image should be accessible from "This PC", having been assigned a drive letter (E:).
2. Copy the the contents of the mounted image: just "right click" - "open" on the image icon and copy all files to a separate directory, say in %TEMP%\NFSHP2. Open this directory.
3. "right click" setup.exe, go to "Properties", select "Compatibility" tab. There, check "Run this program as administrator" and "Run this program in compatibility mode" where you select Windows XP SP2 (other configurations may also work). "double click" setup.exe and hopefully the install screen will appear, and then you can proceed with the regular installation procedure. To avoid Windows complaining about insufficient privileges I suggest setting the installation folder to "C:\EA Games\Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2" or any path outside of folders with protected access (such as "C:\Program Files (x86)").
4. once installation is complete, check the size of the installation folder, if it is not 500+ MB but around 50-60 MB as it was for me then the game did not install correctly. You should then continue with step 5. Otherwise you can jump to step 6.
5. Comparing the contents of the image disk with that of the installation folder, you may notice that many files/folders are plain missing from the latter. The solution is to simply copy these to the installation folder. Folders whose contents I think I copied are actors, AI, audio, movies, Cars, tracks and GameSpy .
6. Install the v242 patch (using the same settings as for running setup.exe in step 3)
7. Replace the executable (nfshp2.exe) by the provided no-cd executable.
8. Run nfshp2.exe. You may need to run as admin.

Hopefully, this will work for you as it did for me. The game itself is good, especially if you are into being chased by cops. If you are more into racing, I think the previous NFS games (High Stakes and Porsche) are significantly better. They have more tracks, a damage model and better handling (esp. Porsche). On the flip side, they have considerably worse graphics (NFS HP 2 looked stunning back in the days).

If you want to win WITHOUT USING CHEATS then choose MANUAL GEARS - I configure the Microsoft Gamepad - especially important is to use gears only to slide around corners ( except for severe hairpins - need brakes too ); plus remain in lower gears until full revs - ALSO NEVER use "behind the car perspective" always with clear view ahead.

How to make the noCd "work":

1. Install from mounted/burned image.
2. Copy the following directories from the CD/imagefile into your installation dir:

\actors
\AI
\Audio
\Cars
\Movies
\Particle
\Tracks

and voilà... you are now a happy speedster! ;)

Amazing game however not so good as it looks on a PS2 (see youtube)
But it's one of the best Need4Speeds ever !
Lot's of tracks in 4 different landscapes (Mediterian Grece like, a rough Coast with passes through sequoia trees, Tropic with city and vulcanic pass, Autumn like Mountains all with many possibilities and shortcuts.
You can play the championship started with the cheapier sportscars like Lotus Elise and the Vauxhall, then progress through BMW Z8, Corvette, Mustang GT, Viper, later on the very expensive Mc Larens and F50's, Ow yeah hit the pedal to the metal !
During high jumps the camera changes like they did with the crashes in N4S1 (however you can turn it off)
The damage model is not so spectacular but it's okay during the normal races but during the Hot Pursuit races there more visable.
Cops are trying to catch you and block the way like in the other need4speeds, but new thing are the helicopters that drops bombs to you with spectacular 360° camera stopped time views (srry for bad English LOL)
Downsides of this game are the replays that exist of 1 camera behind your car or the bumpercam (depends how you drived the race).
And there are no weather effects.
Also the PS2 version has more variation and cooler graphics.
The framerate is somewhat low, even on fast systems, that's really strange, but it's good playable in 1920x1080 with an i3-2120 8GB RAM and r9 380 (4GB)

Conclusion: you liked Hot Pursuit 1 and fast cars, get it now !

When installing, it asks for "the code found in the white box on the back of the game manual". Couldn't find it on the downloads.
