Out of the blue Links2003 is prompting for "Insert CD"

Post by Buckshot »

I've been playing Links2003 on my Win 10 PC for months. Then for some reason it is now asking for the installation disk "Insert Cd" when I select to "Play". I've not touched the Links2003 files. Window updates have taken place. I've searched for help, tinkered with turning "Secdrv" on to no avail. Looked all over for a solution but haven't been successful. I even went through an entire re-install of the game using all the files from Links Corner.

Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

This is what usually causes it. Filename: RuKsHuK.exe in the /Links 2003/ directory. Rename the old one to oldRuKsHuK.exe, and replace it with this one:

If what pmgolf suggests does not fix the problem look to see if you have a G:// Drive showing, this can happen after updates if you do have a G:// Drive showing change the Drive letter for a different one. For some reason, Links is looking at the G:// instead of your C:// Drive. Worked for me a few times.
