Install & play guide:

  • Install the game
  • Also it is recommended to install DirectX 9 (if you're using Windows 10 - enable DirectPlay, read this or this guide how to do it)
  • Open the game folder and find Silent Heroes.exe. Right click on Silent Heroes.exe - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows 2000 or XP" and "Run as administrator"
  • Launch the game and play. If the game doesn't work - try to launch the game in compatibility mode with old versions of Windows (Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP)


  • If the installation doesn't start - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (Win98, Win2000, XP or Vista)
  • It is recommended to install old versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for the correct work of the game
  • Also it is recommended to install Windows Media 9 and K-Lite Codec Pack for the correct work of in-game videos
  • The game works on DirectX 9, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • The game supports widescreen resolutions, but you can experience some bugs if you play on 1920x1080 or higher resolution. In that case use Widescreen fix
  • Widescreen fix also fixes Texture or surface size is too big (esurface.cpp, 129) error
  • For users of Windows 64-bit systems: if the game doesn't work after you launched it - open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del by default) and check for processes Silent Heroes.exe and rundll32.exe. Close Silent Heroes.exe but don't touch rundll32.exe (it's a Windows app for running old apps from 32-bit operational systems, most old games running through rundll32.exe). Now try to launch the game again, it must work. Don't forget to close rundll32.exe process in Task Manager after finishing playing
