OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64



I am a fan of the Splinter Cell series and am replaying it again. Chaos Theory is the 3rd one and I already played the first 2 without any problems on Windows 7.

I installed it, tried to start it and got this message:



I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and have a legal DVD of the game.

OS: Windows vista service pack 2 32bit version



hey this should be very easy to fix i mean very easy!

right click on the game icon and go to properties then go to compatability then select the tick box that says run in compatability mode for: then select your choice of one from the drop down menu. (obviously one of the listed ones in the game error message) then select ok and done.

if this works get back to me just so i know.

I already tried that, didn't work. I think it has something to do with Star Force.

I downloaded a "OS Fix" patch, but it was for the Euro/Australian version.

I applied the patch and now I just get this runtime error:

I finally got it to work by applying certain patches in a certain order (bypassing Starforce).

1. Install the game

2. Apply: "SplinterCell3ChaosTheoryv1.05NoDVDFixedexeEuroAus"

3. Apply: "SplinterCell3ChaosTheoryv1.05OSFixNoDVDFixedexeEuroAus"

4. Apply: "scct_1.00_to_1.05_america" Patch

5. Play!

Just search for those exact names on Google and you should find the right ones and install them in that order.
