I've been trying to get chaos theory to work on win7 ultimate x64 for a few days now. I keep getting an error saying it can only run with windows 95, Windows ME, etc. I've tried installing these three patches (which, i was told, would fix the problem)
"SplinterCell3ChaosTheoryv1.05NoDVDFixedexeEuroAus"
"SplinterCell3ChaosTheoryv1.05OSFixNoDVDFixedexeEuroAus"
"scct_1.00_to_1.05_america" Patch

i kept on getting blinkw32.dll errors on that second patch so i couldnt get this method to work correctly

i tried running SCCT in xp mode but i kept on getting the error "Virtual environment for launching application has been closed. Start the application again"

I can't think of anything else to try. Is there some way i can fix those errors? or am i just not gonna be able to play scct?

Using Windows Explorer right click on the "chaos theory" .exe program.
Select Properties > Compatibility
Click on the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Select the mode you wish to use.

AfterTheUnded,

Gandalf is correct -- have you attempted to run the application in compatibility mode for Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Should you require additional assistance and guidance Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 .

It's lucky I am trying to install this classic game just today, too, in my Win7x64.
Same problem, so I google and have followed the tolded method, but not working.

DON"T GIVE UP!

I also failed to install the 1.05 US Patch AFTER two FixedexeEuroAus (as 2.+3. as follow), said that I am not compatable to install Americian version to my game.

So I download a 1.05 EURO patch again, neglecting my original game version (US or EURO), and THEN install the FixedexeEUROAus. Now I am playing with all Maxium settings and enjoying a funny looking for a older Sam Fisher.

In my conclusion, Try in this oder!
0. Install the game
1."scct_1.00_to_1.05_EURO" Patch
2."SplinterCell3ChaosTheoryv1.05NoDVDFixedexeEuroAus"
3."SplinterCell3ChaosTheoryv1.05OSFixNoDVDFixedexeEuroAus"
4. Play!

Having a hard time with steps 2 and 3- they download as .rar files- do I need to extract them, and if so, what then? Where do I put them!?!

Thanks in advance!!!

I'm having the same problems with SCCT - have downloaded and extracted the .rar files, but what do I need to do with them? just running the two .exe. files doesn't seem to actually do anything?
