Actually, whenever I first upgraded to Windows 10 I had that same problem. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game. However, I finally got it to work by running Madden in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3. Here's how.

You should get into baseball next spring. It's loads of fun, and it keeps you occupied.

Actually, I'm a huge baseball fan, but I usually quit playing Out of the Park Baseball around August so I can start using Madden. I usually play Madden until February.

Ultimatum77 might be able to help you. If he can't, then... I guess you should get back into baseball. :lol:

I have the amazon download version of Madden 08 and Windows 10. I've gone through the troubleshooting guide and I still get crashes. I've installed the latest DirectX's and DOTNET packages. I am running in windows XP compatibility mode. Oh and I'm running the game on 800x600 res. And it still crashes randomly during games. Anytime from the first quarter to right before the end of the game during the 4th. I have never finished a game and I've had this game for a week. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? I'm on the latest update of windows 10. Not really sure how to keep from updating

Thanks man! I appreciate it! I'm constantly refining this guide every few months as new information comes in from users....if you have any specific thing you did or can suggest for W10 users (most frequent OS with M08 issues) do drop a pm or post on this forum guide section...

here is a link for those wanting to try out IOBIT gamebooster....

it should be the old 3.4 version NOT razor...(green) edition....

the link is from majorgeeks....

I have used it succesfully on W10 pc (gamebooster) and it works well at shutting down useless metro UI/background windows apps/processes to free up gaming memory and resources....
For help running madden please consult my guide and posts from fellow users here....thanks! (link below) viewtopic.php?f=22&t=17907
I'm not on site much, so if I don't respond it's b/c I haven't checked in a while.

Just a small comment. I am using Windows 10. I had problems with other games. The first thing I did prior to installing madden 08 was to make the dvd setup.exe run in winXp compatibility mode and run as administrator. The install ran properly and I downloaded the last madden patch. I set the patch the same as the setup.exe (xp compatibility and run as admin). The process went good. My last step was updating using the latest FI mod. The game runs great! Hope the Info helps others. Major thank you going to all the mod guys!

Hey guys,

I'm having issues with madden crashing as well. I have re installed with no mods or anything, finally got it to play into the 3rd qrtr of a game and then, when the first flag is thrown, crash.

Anyone have this issue?
