View Full Version : Do I have a problem? Can it be fixed?
No problems with SH3 on my old computer using XP, But my new computer uses vista and after loading SH3 I find all harbours in the map view are not there.
Is it fixable?
PS... I've downloaded the patch 1.4 it's not helped.

Welcome to Subsim.:sunny:
Vista is full of minefields for any SH3 player, so much so that there is a sticky here - http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=105144
The following is the installation instructions for GWX under Vista but much of it is true for the basic version of the game. Just tailor these for your situation.:up:
Installation of GWX on Widows VISTA
Perform the following steps if you are installing GWX in a Windows Vista® environment, assuming
you have already executed Steps 1 and 2 in the Basic Installation procedure:
1. Unistall Silent Hunter III
2. Delete the residual Silent Hunter III installation folder and all contents
3. Delete (or at least rename) your “MyDocuments\SH3” save game folder
4. Delete the “C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\SilentHunterIII”
folder and all its contents, if it exists.
5. Reinstall Silent Hunter III. The GWX Team recommends you install it outside of the “\Program
6. Right-click the 1.4b patch “.exe” file and select “Run as administrator”
7. Install the patch
8. Verify you installed the patch correctly by running the game.
9. If the game fails to run, download and install the StarForce Vista update from the StarForce
developers’ site: http://www.star-force.com/support/sfdrvup.zip.
10. You can now run optional tools like SH3 Commander, JSGME, SH3Gen, etc. provided you run
them as an “Administrator” after you have installed them.
The GWX team recommends reading up on the Microsoft Vista “User Account Control” and “File
Virtualization” features for greater familiarity with Windows Vista system security issues that may
affect Silent Hunter III.
Good luck and if you are still having problems ask us again.
Many thanks, I'll give it all a go
