Hello,

If you have Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise edition of Windows 7 you can download a free program called XP Mode from Microsoft which will allow you to play the game.

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!

I have "windows7 Home"


They will work with Windows 7 Professional or higher due to a built in "compatibility mode"

All you need to do is... upgrade to Windows 7 Professional. Right Click on the setup icon for the game. Go to properties. Look for compatibility mode. Run it in windows XP mode

And there ya go :)

My game won't open, it says "New GFXSurface failed...get tech support..."


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.

Vista & SH3 driver compatability


Your vesion of Silent hunter III requires a driver compatable to vista, which can be downloaded from HP website. If you are using a graphics card, then go to their website and download its driver. If you are unable to find the driver, please inform me about the model number and specifications of your P and details of your graphics card, if any.

Game will not open up


Zoo Tycoon has several problems with windows XP after SP2

Uninstall completely...

Reinstall... RESTART AFTER INSTALLING

If your DISC does not have a UBISOFT logo on it, download and install the patch from 

http://zootycoon.com/Downloads/patches.htm

If it DOES you do not need to download it as you already have it and installed it when you installed the game.

If the game does not run try rightclick>properties. Compatability tab, set compatability mode for: Windows 98.

My own copy of zoo tycoon had a weird glitch where you could only run it after you restarted the computer... and if you closed it when you were done playing you would have to restart it (the computer) to play again.
