I am having trouble running LInks with Windows 10. When I start the game, it acts like it is launching, I see the splash screen and the Nvidia graphics 3D message at the bottom. Then it drops back to the desktop. Any ideas? I have tried any number of compatibility settings with no success. Thanks for any help!

Have you installed the v1.07 patch and the nVidia fix for Win7?

I have but will try again. The funny thing is that I have a laptop with Windows 10 and Links works fine. But the desktop is a no go. I may try to uninstall and reinstall.

Check my sticky thread about Links 2003 not launching. It may be your problem.

I tried the USB sticky tips...with no success (or maybe some success since I changed the usb ports I was using).. Then I started thinking. I had an RX 580 card before and had to replace it after it became defective. So I installed a GTX 1060. I figured it was worth a shot to install the 1.07 patch and the Nvidia patch again....and Bingo. Works like a charm. I hate to start changing screen resolution now with fear that it may cause problems. Thanks to all. Your tips and help were invaluable. Now back to Links....!

Edit: I changed the resolution to 1920x1080 and it went off without a hitch. Forgot how much I missed this game!

Thanks again everyone!

An update..

Links is running rock solid on the system now and could not have done it without the feedback from everyone. I have played some newer golf simulators but forgot how much fun Links is. On the LSPN tour and loving it!
