Hello all,

I recently upgraded to Windows 10. I attempted to run MVP Baseball with the settings I used before in Windows 7 (run in compatibility mode for Windows XP and run as administrator). However, the game will not even start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Same for me too. Uninstalled and reinstalled and the game won't even start!

After upgrading to windows 10,I´m not able to play like before.It runs like fast forward.Gameplay and even the menu is too fast.I tried turn on/off v-sync and tested several  compatibility modes.It seems to be even faster with a lower resolution like 640x480.At 1280x1024 it seems to run in normal speed,but the game is kind of laggy /stuttering ,even with ok fps.So for me its unplayable now.I reinstalled the game and tried to use different patches,before mod my game,nothing works(it´s unplayable modded and unmodded).Maybe,it´s a graphic card thing under Win 10 (my card was not detected-i had to install a driver manually),my card is an old Radeon x550-but i never had problems to play this game with or without mods. :(

Allot of us did a clean install of Win 10 after first upgrading from whatever OS.  Has anyone just did the upgrade from Win 7 that kept all their programs etc. and has MVP still working?  On the Win 10 forums seems like the people that just did the upgrade, most of their previously installed software still works.

I have an AMD R290 card and running the Win 10 Video drivers and still can't get the game to even turn on at all.

I performed the Win 10 Pro upgrade over my Win 7 Ultimate and have 64 bit.  I have not been able to get MVP to even start from the icon.  I do have all patches through #5.  I have tried to run as admin and use all the compatibility modes with no success. Hoping for a solve eventually!

Hi folks,

I'm new to the forum, and came here hoping someone had found a solution. I know what the problem is, at least for an unmodded game:

MVP Baseball 2005 uses SafeDisc v2, which uses a file called SECDRV.SYS to validate the disc. This normally shipped with Windows, but Microsoft appears to have pulled it from Windows 10. Every game I have tested that uses this form of copy protection exhibits the following behavior:

 - If you try to run it, you get told to log in with Administrator Privileges and to try again.

 - If you then set "Run as Admin" compatibility mode, the message disappears, but the game doesn't start.

 - Keeping a window open for C:\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\DRIVERS shows SECDRV.SYS appearing (apparently put there by the game) at the moment you try to start the game.

 - The Windows event log shows that SECDRV.SYS failed to load. The problem, it seems, is that the failed driver load is making these games fail their copy protection.

On my Windows 64-bit 8.1 system, C:\WINDOWS\WINSXS has a folder called amd64_macrovision-protection-safedisc_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_4e6b3758913c9240 with a SECDRV.SYS in it, presumably the one that ships with Windows. Windows 10 had such a folder in early builds (I found this by looking at error logs posted online), but it is missing from the release build.

 

When I have time I might do another Win 10 disk image, copy that Macrovision folder from my Win 7 installation on my other SSD and then reinstall the game and see what happens.  Unless you already tried that.  I am dual booting so I have Win 7 on another SSD that I have been playing the game from.

Win 10 didn't have that folder so I copied the one from Win 7 and clean installed the game in the C: folder.  Didn't add any mods or anything but unfortunately the game does not even attempt to start.

So I think,i solved my problem,by using MSI Afterburner to set my max fps at 60.I think on the first page,someone had the same problem and he limited the fps.Now the gameplay looks a little bit slow,but maybe that´s  pure imagination :D

At least your getting the game to run.  Most of us the game won't even turn on.  Luckily I am dual booting with Win 7 so I can continue to play.  I worry about next season when I probably won't be dual booting.

This was definitely the problem for me. You can google solutions to this problem by googling "Secdrv.sys windows 10". I will not post the solutions here as they might violate any rules. If anyone can upload their SECDRV.SYS (not sure if this would work), that would be awesome as well. As of now, I finally got my MVP Baseball working on Windows 10 Pro!

 

Hint: It seems like if the game is working for you on Windows 10, its because your using an illegal copy :p

Like I said earlier, I copied that file from my Win 7 and reinstalled the game and it still wouldn't open.

If that's the case, then we won't discuss it any longer, as we don't provide support for illegal copies of the game.

Yes, but is that definite?  I know guys were having trouble with TW 08 golf and definitely not using illegal copies.  Let's not forget about M$ and early release bugs.

I'm not saying that we don't discuss issues with MVP or MLB2K running with Windows 10.  I'm saying that we don't discuss issues related to having illegal copies of the game or anything that looks like we are encouraging users to get illegal copies of the game.

Understandable.  It just sounded like you were making it definite that it was a Win10/illegal copy problem and that was the only reason.

Unfortunately, the problem is that the game doesn't work on windows 10 if you actually have a legitimate copy (like i do). And requires a .exe that removes the safedisc option that was NOT included in Windows 10. But yes, until someone else figures out a way to legitimately make MVP baseball work for people that actually bought the game, it probably is best to not support the current solution.

I bought the game legitimately and I would like to know how to fix this. I also have MLB2K12 and I can't run that either!

Just an opinion from being in the IT field for several years and doing sysadmin stuff for Windows machines,

I find even Windows 8.1 to be better than Windows 7 as it is. Faster boot, lighter OS...with no real downsides.

Windows 10 is pretty much Windows 7 with all of the actual improvements that Windows 8/8.1 brought in. It's more efficient with its hardware, more secure, faster startup/shutdowns and better Windows Update handling. Odds are with the lack of Aero (which was an issue with graphics cards at the time of W7 release) you'll get a few more frames out of your games too. If you use the Windows store to install desktop applications (i.e. NOT the metro ones introduced in Windows 8), you'll be glad to find that they're more than likely not to clutter up your system unnecessarily with random registry keys that are left behind, etc.

On a side note, with Windows 10 being the first OS that Microsoft will be offering as a "service", you'll be receiving new features that Microsoft develops as they're released through Windows Update along with all of the security patches. You can opt out of the features for up to several months, but the security/critical updates are mandatory and will install themselves. If you're the family IT guy like I am, you can be relieved to find that you'll no longer have to ask which version of Windows they're on, you'll just be able to assume "Windows 10", and most importantly because this is the first OS which Microsoft has attempted to do a rolling release (meaning everything gets updated on your machine when MS pushes out an update) with, you will always have the most recent build on your machine.

I dumped W7 years ago and never looked back. It was a great OS for its time.

I really enjoyed 8 and 8.1 too for these reasons.  However it does have a lot of drawbacks for me to use, and most of it lies in the limitations with using a domain user.  And since they were working on 10, it was never addressed.  That was the only reason I stuck with 7. 

 

reading through all the issues you guys are having, has anyone tried running xp or 7 on a virtual pc?  I'd test it myself for you but I haven't had a chance to install 10 yet.  I know some of you are talking about dual booting, but a virtual pc is much easier to set up because you can back it up really easy.  there are just so many benefits to running it rather than dual booting.  but off my soap box.  someone test it on a virtual pc and let me know if the game works, or wait until i get around to installing 10.

I have researched this everywhere that I can think of.  All the games that were produced with that safedisc file are not working because that secdrv.sys file in the macrovision folder doesn't exist in the final version of Win 10.  I even copied that missing folder from my windows 7 SSD and pasted in the same Win 10 system folder and it still didn't work.  There is a whole list of older games that won't work.  Really sucks.

Why is a no cd crack wrong in this case if one owns the legit cds? This is the solution right now & I don't see it being any different then modding the game at this point.

I installed the game patches, and then applied the no-cd and it's been fine on win10. My cds are so used now that I can't imagine going without it anyway. 

Plus, really is the solution going to be any different then this if the issue is safedisc?

I did a search for no-cd. I used to use Gamejack to save my cds, but it wouldn't launch the game with win10.
