Someone, anyone, help me!
I have decided to re-install silent hunter 3 on my WINDOWS 7 (64-bit) PC, and updated to the latest patch... or so i thought, reading through other posts somebody explained how to check to see what version their silent hunter lll game was. after updating, restarting, and re-checking, it seems my SHlll is stuck on version: 188.8.131.52 and there seems to be no way around it. normally i wouldn't care, but this is the next step im taking as my pc seems to be unable to play the game at all due to the error at the top of this page. please somebody help me because i really love this game and it would be a shame to have to get rid of it...
thank you for reading.

If you can get your hands on an old copy of XP, you can play shiii on VMware Player, so long as your computer has enough specs to for virtualization. I tried on Parallels, and Virtualbox, but both of those did not work. Somehow VMware is able to meet graphic card requirements, whereas other two could not.

I have just installed win 7 and tes sh3 will not work,
I think it as some thing to do with starforce witch keeps comeing up,.
it saying it as loaded ok you must do a restart and that is all it keeps doing,
I seen once a new sh3 without starforce but I dont know were it was.

Hello mate i think that i may have the answer to your problem.Same thing happened to me and here is what i did if you have a computer that has windows XP then you can play SH3 without any trouble however trying it ON WINDOWS 7 that is a problem so i suggest you create a partition on your disk and have a second OPERATING SYSTEM so that you can play all Silent hunters
