Default Silent Hunter Commander's Edition

I am using SH Commander's edition under DOSBOX and I am running Win 10 and when I try to add the add-on's that were available for the sim my computer says unable to run on this computer. This programs are run with a exe file, any way to get them to install?

Hi J
Run the install or exe as an administrator.

Hey Peter, I tried it I even right click on the EXE file and went under compatibility and check off run as administrator and it does not work. When I try I get the little blue screen up on the computer says this app can’t run on your PC to find a version for your PC check with the software publisher. I was trying to give this thing a shot because I remember how much fun Silent Hunter commanders edition was.

You should try to also run the setup.exe or add-on exe in Dosbox instead of your native OS. Have you tried that? With D-Fend Reloaded (frontend for Dosbox) there is a special field to run these secondary setup programs for a Dos game.

Hey JeffG did you get it to work?

If not, try Kim Rønhof's program, it does everything Hawks tools do and more. It was written to work in operating systems back in 2008 and earlier but it may run in Win 10 with XP compatibility mode selected... I don't have Win 10 yet, still running Win 7.

You can change the following data :

The Patrol area.
The Submarine type and name.
The Salmon/Sargo submarine specifications. Warning see note on use !!
The Narwhal/Argonaut fix Warning see note on use !!
The S-boat fix Warning see note on use !!
The gun position (for or aft) – but only on fleet submarines.
The crew experience level.
The Fog setting.
The torpedo load (type of torpedoes, and distribution into tubes and racks)
You can reload fuel and ammo for the gun.
The departure date.
You can change the tonnage, length, beam and draft of the 9 Maru types.

But not all can be done at once, it depends on your patrol status (harbor or on patrol).

Happy Hunting!

I will try that one as I still can not get any of those add-ons to work. I was able to add the extra missions. Will let you know btw I found on Scribd the full manual for Silent Service 2 and the book 40 Great Submarine Simulator War Adventures,Sub Commander. Great reads for these games and also for SH4.
