Which version do you have and what is the specific error you are getting?

What OS are you using? If it's anything past XP (I think), you're going to have to jump through some hoops to make it work. It can be done, but it might be tricky.


The Steel Beasts website has some threads on how to make it happen.

Good luck!

Yeah ... you're going to have to do a bit of work to get that running.

Then there was the issue with the application launcher that the publisher created for it which alone caused extra trouble, and it's not even our own application.

Don't get me wrong, SB Gold was a great sim. I spent many hours on it. But you can get a time-limited license for SB Pro PE for as little as US$9.50 (for one month).


I don't know if you've checked out Pro PE, but it's leaps and bounds beyond SB Gold. There are now [IIRC] over one hundred playable vehicles and the new, highly detailed terrain is awesome. Those are just two of many, many new features that make it well worth the price.

I'm not really familiar with either of those, so I can't say for sure. But I think they probably would.
