Hey, I'm trying to play this game... I've downloaded the patch, its all set up, I have DirectX 9.0c, I do not have service pack 2. When I load Tutorials, it freezes, When I load Campaigns, it freezes.
When I load up the Skirmishes it gives me this error. Unhandled Exception! in Version 1.01 Beta 2 Build 500

Which patch did you use? Was it this one? http://starfleetcommand3.filefront.com/file/sfc3_beta_patch_v534b_all_languages;28800 I don't know why it would say "Version 1.01 Beta 2 Build 500" if you have the latest patch.

Uninstall SFC3, reinstall, get the latest patch (Build 534) and install. Now, right-click on the SFC3 icon, and click on the Compatibility tab. Click on Disable Visual themes. Now try the game again.
I used the 40 meg patch on that site. And I already tried that, I've skimmed through every page looking for solutions, I've tried them all so far.
Also, When I load the Tutorial, It Freezes, but I can minimize the screen.
When I load a Campaign, It freezes and wont let me minimize it, forcing me to manual reset.
