Default crash at career startup

Installed SHIII from steam, installed GSW Gold. Can do naval academy, but when I setup a career and try to run it, the red bar gets about 7/8 of the way, then stops. A window pops up saying windows has encountered a problem and offers to close or debug. Debug goes to a black screen and close simply returns me to desktop.

Windows 10 Home
NVidia GTX 1080
16 Gb HD
Intel i-7 @2600

Came up from the depths and got into flight sim and World of Warships for a while. Now I try to get back into SHIII and the steam install and GSW Gold aren't allowing for a career. Back to the surface I guess.

Go to your steamapps/common/Silent Hunter 3 folder and check if the game is running in compatibility mode: "Windows XP Service Pack 3" and the "run as administrator" box is checked. That should solve your problems.

Hi rd
Make sure you are running windows 10 in this compatibility mode.

Run your applications as administrators.
