At this point, NR2003 is abandonware. I doubt anyone is going to come after anyone like what happened back in the mid 2000s.

So, as some of you have pointed out in the past, if you are attempting to run NR2003 on a newer operating system, the older No-CD Patch will no longer work. Instead, it will boot up the game, and will then crash when you go to a race and attempt to hit 'drive'. Now, there's two different ways to fix this. One involves going into your system and disabling DEP, or you can use the newer No-CD patch available here.

The newer No-CD patch is tested and works perfectly fine on newer systems (I myself am running NR2003 on Windows 10), so no worries about having to disable DEP.

Hopefully this helps anyone out who is having issues!
Thanks for the patch, man. I tried it recently and works perfect. No need to turn off the stupid DEP anymore. Thanks again. :D

The No CD patch below eliminates the need to disable DEP, which many have been doing in order to get NR2003 to run.

Are you running in compatibility mode and as an admin?

Yes I have ran it with both for some reason without the graphics update mod it works a little further, but still not enough to go full on, but I also run it in windows 8 mode should I run it lower?
