Is the game originally for windows 95 or 98? If so, try running it in compatibility mode.You get there by right clicking on your desktop icon, select properties, then compatibility tab. There you should have a checkbox for compatibility for win 95 etc.There are other settings in there, you may have to play with it a bit.

For some old games you usually need some kind of emulator, basically this will allow you to run a game in an environment the game was designed for.

out on a limb here but i assume usage of windows vista.

Install onto windows vista


Your having problem with Silent Hunter 3 on you windows Vista, It is because Silent Hunter 3 is not compatible with windows Vista. Maybe the game may work if you play it with XP compatibility. Heres how to do that.
  1. Locate the shortcut icon of Silent Hunter in your Desktop.
  2. Once you locate the icon, right click on it and click on Customize to show the Customize Menu.
  3. On the Customize Menu, Select Play and then click on Edit. ( This process will show you the Properties Screen)
  4. On the Properties Screen, you will find the Compatibility Tab, Click on it.
  5. find the sentence that says " run in compatibility mode for: ", you will see a drop-down list underneath it. It contains all the OS that can be compatible with your game.
  6. Browse the drop-down and select Windows XP.
  7. Click Apply and OK then close the Customize Menu.
  8. Now your game will try to run in XP compatiblity mode.
  9. Your done. Run the game now.
If the solution above doesn't work and you really want to play the game. I suggest you change your operating system in which the game is supported.

Goodluck , Hope that this solution will help. Please give some feedback regarding my solution thanks.
Thank you for using Fixya!Have a great day!

Try reinstalling the game. It sounds like the game files are corrupted or did not install correctly the first time.
