$348.59 Left to Reach our Goal!

Every year we run a fundraiser to cover the cots of the server for the next year. This last year we had to upgrade servers due to an attack and the costs are a little higher, but as you can all tell it is much faster and much more reliable.  VERY IMPORTANT even though myZIP is reduced to 1MB you can still download courses and libraries by clicking on the course or library name on the Download Tab.  We need to raise $2,500 in order to increase everyone's myZIP size back to 30 MB and for those who have donated in the past once we reach our goal your myZIP file size will be increased back to 1GB. Members who made a donation of $5 or more in the last 30 days have already had their's increased. We recommend a donation of $25 however every dollar counts, however to increase your MyZip size you need to make a donation of $5 USD or more. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE LOGGED IN BEFORE MAKING A CONTRIBUTION.

I downloaded win 10 on my laptop and now can't even get TW08 disc to load. I insert disc and suppose to come up so I can download but I get nothing. I'm trying to look for a place to check on compatibility on my laptop but win 10 isn't that friendly. Any suggestions? Thx.

Several people are using Win10, for most people it works.
Some people using AMD Radeon graphics card had problems running the game, see link below, for a solution for AMD Radeon users.
Also when you have a Direct X error message, then you can find some help on link below:
http://www.coursedownloads.com/forum/posts.asp?post=10042&forum=11

For all users,Follow steps below:
On desktop you should have TW08 program icon.
This is how you can get the TW08 icon on your desktop:
Go to the bin folder in TW08, see path below:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Sports\Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08\bin

Now inside the bin folder right click the TW08.exe icon, and in list choose: Copy to...and choose: Desktop
Now you will have the Tw08 icon on your desktop.
Now you will have to run TW08 in compatibility mode, see help below.

Automatically Change Compatibility Mode Settings for App in Program Compatibility Troubleshooter:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Right click on TW08 icon on desktop, and click/tap on: Troubleshoot compatibility
Click/tap: Continue
Then click second option: Continue troubleshoot program
Now choose option on top: Try recommended settings
And click: Test program
Now TW08 should start, when it started close TW08 again
Now click: Next......and choose the option on top: Save the settings for this program
After that TW08 should work.
Important note: When you do the compatibility thing, it is possible your system will say it will not work in compatibility mode or TW08 will not start, but just finish the steps above and restart your PC and it should work !!!!

When you are using TWCaddie08 to install courses:
------------------------------------------------
Right click TWCaddie08 icon....choose properties....on top click: Shortcut......and then on bottom click: Advanced
And check the Run as administrator box, and click: OK

Option: When you don t have the icon on your desktop, you can also go to: C:\Program Files\CourseDownloads.com\TW Caddie 08 - Vista 64
And you can do the administrator thing on the TWCaddie08 icon you will find there.

I think it''''s worth mentioning that even if you get past the memory error with the fix and compatibility mode there is another big problem. The original TW 08 disc has securom. Windows 10 will not run it as the securom/safe disc driver has been removed from the OS. Those who upgraded from Windows 7 or 8 are in luck as the driver can be re activated. For clean installs of Windows 10 you are bang out of luck. Unless a no cd exe is sourced but given the kind of sites you need to go to get these it''''s not worth the risk. I wish a digital download version existed but unfortunately it does not. The guys on here have been fantastic helping many getting the game running. The memory issue happens on nvidia cards too. I think modern gpu had too much memory and direct X falsifies reported memory causing a zero query in the game without the fix applied. I hope EA remember the PC enthusiasts one day and release a new golf game that properly supports Windows 10. Given golf is a game best played on a PC with a mouse rather than consoles I cannot believe they don''t include the pc

I believe virtually every tiger woods version between 2000-2008 has some kind of securom. That''''s EA for you!

Thanks Gun for that good info. I restarted my laptop and now am able to download my TW08 disc. I will use your instructions for compatibility and hopefully get it running. Thank god I have my other laptop with win8.1 to fall back on to play while I iron this out.

Re: the securom issue on win 10. I'd rather not risk finding and downloading no cd cracks. Instead I will try game jackal by slysoft to see if that helps. I'll report back if it is a success

no cd (it''s actually a dvd)cracks, hacks etc - not supposed to be on the forums

game jackal IMO - is same category - you''re bypassing security software installed by the game distributor
purchasing a copy of tw08 doesn''t get a round that

shouldn''t need that with Win10

I''m just a little baffled how so many of you are playing TW 08 on Windows 10. It shouldn''t work with disc because of securom / safe disc quashed by MS. It even came down in an update by MS on win 7/8 systems where the secdrv service/driver was disabled but this can then be re enabled via registry or cmd prompt. It can also be done on 10 but you had to of upgraded from 7 or 8/8.1, the driver doesn''t exist in clean installs of Windows 10 full stop. I presume many users haven''t done the registry edit or cmd prompt so I wonder how people run it. No Cd/DVD.exe? Or does TW caddie give a different executable ? A digital version of game would work but AFAIK these don''t exist. I just want the game to work, I paid my money so am well hacked by MS and to an extent EA over it. So I am curious as to the methods, maybe the driver hadn''t been disabled in some upgrade installs and the majority of guys on here are not playing on a clean install but an upgraded one.

Cheers, Wayne

Hello Scottyboy99, interesting info about the security driver problem.
I did some research about it and a guy found a workaround for it on win10.
When you go on link below, scroll a bit down and look for: Adam Bise replied on August 17

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/games_windows_10/secdrvsys-not-loading-in-windows-10-this-will/65a6fe83-08df-4760-b2ad-6b1ce61d40d4?page=3

Hi, thank you so much for finding that link. I have read it, the workaround is a good one. Quite an intimidating undertaking. I will try and look at it soon. In meantime I will pursue replacing affected software with digital versions where possible. Soon I will have tiger woods running again! I did manage to hook my older 7 laptop (after a regedit to re enable secdrv.sys) up to my new machines larger monitor via its hdmi output. So all is not lost and I can play tiger woods that way. Of course id prefer to do it on my newer machine.

I hope others seeking to play the game will see the threads on here and it will help them. My hat is off to you guys for all the help and the way an old classic keeps running. I hope EA one day see sense and re incarnate the Pga tour series on pc
