    Angry Silent Hunter 3 patch problem updating

    Hello and good day, I am a big fan of the Silent Hunters. I had purchased Silent Hunter II that came with Silent Hunter III, About six months ago. I have been trying to to patch Silent Hunter III I am having a problem patches 1.1 to 1.3 keep getting an error C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\ SilentHunterIII\anim.act: unknown version and patch 1.4 is giving me an error C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\ SilentHunterIII\MissionEngine.dll: unknown version.

    I have unstalled the game and have reinstalled and still the same error. I have the cd for the game. Any ideas on what I can do? Thanks.

    The first thing I would do is uninstall SHIII, then reinstall somewhere else than Program Files (x86). I'm assuming you're either using Vista or Win 7 64-bit. Installing the game to Program Files (x86) causes all kinds of problems with the game in both Vista or Win7. Then get the SHIII v1.4b patch. This patch includes all previous patches. Choose either retail DVD or download according to whichever you have. The try looking here for tips on getting SHIII working on Win 7. The suggestions will work for Vista also. Hope this helps you out some.

    Have you installed DirectX 9.0c? This is needed for the game to play correctly.

    You will still need to install DX 9.0c. It is required by the game. Installing DX 9.0c will not harm your computer in anyway.

    I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, I've reached the end of my knowledge for SHIII on Win 7. Hopefully someone else will be along soon who can offer you a solution.
