Issues fixed

Failed To Find Steam

Run Steam as an administrator[citation needed]
Enable Steam Offline mode then back to online mode[citation needed]

Crashes/freezes after the mission

There is a common issue, that seems to be introduced with Nvidia's driver v 353.62.[4]
Enable SLI (even if you don't use more than 1 graphics card)[4]
  1. Launch the game's configuration tool.
  2. Check Override SLI.
  3. Check Enable SLI.
Cap the framerate with external software such as MSI Afterburner[4]
Set the shader quality to High (Shader Model 2.0)[4]
If everything else fails, you can play through individual levels using a profile that has all missions unlocked.[5]

Game not Booting

Ensure your graphics card supports Pixel Shader 2.0[citation needed]
Error message: missing "d3x9_27.dll"[citation needed]
SecuROM errors[citation needed]
If you're experiencing problems with SecuROM errors, try running the game in Windows 2000 Compatibility mode. To do so:
  1. Right click on the shortcut on your desktop.
  2. Click properties then click on the Compatibility tab.
  3. Check the box "Run this program in Compatibility mode for:" and select Windows 2000.
Install update[citation needed]
Dual-monitor fix[citation needed]
  • If you have 2 monitors connected, disable one and try again.

Increased brightness when in first person mode

Disable post-processing in the settings[citation needed]
Doing so will disable Depth of Field and the "Color Grading" effect which contributes significantly to the mood of many environments.


CTD Opera House Mission[citation needed]
For the Curtains Down mission on Windows XP, turn sound hardware acceleration down (basic acceleration) or off (no acceleration). Down works for some; others need it off entirely.
  1. Go to Start > Run > Type dxdiag.
  2. Click on the 'Sound' tab, and take the hardware sound acceleration down to the bottom.
Not possible on Windows Vista. The only method that seems to work is disabling your sound temporarily for that mission.

Installation Errors

Error 5003 on installation attempt

Error 5003 on installation attempt[citation needed]
  2. Rename InstallShield
  3. Start the installation again.

CRC or cyclic redundancy error during installation

This error is often due to a faulty or damaged DVD. The damage may or may not be visible to the naked eye.
Download discspeed and slow your DVD drive down before installing[citation needed]
Take your DVD to a video rental store and ask how much they charge for a laser resurface/clean[citation needed]
Copy the DVD contents to your hard drive and run setup.exe from there as per these instructions[citation needed]
Buff the CD yourself with Brasso[citation needed]

Please insert original CD

Reinstall DVD drive[citation needed]
  1. Right click 'My Computer' > Click 'Manage'.
  2. Select 'Device Manager'.
  3. Expand 'Disk Drives' in the device manager tree.
  4. Right click your DVD drive > Click 'Uninstall' (Take any disk out first).
  5. Reboot your computer and let Windows 'Find new hardware' and reinstall the DVD drive.
Update DVD drive firmware through the manufacturer's site[citation needed]
When doing this, follow instructions very carefully. Failing to do so may leave you with a non-working drive.

Game stutters with Vsync enabled

Enable SLI through the configuration tool[6]
If the application error "Failed to find Steam" occurs ignore it and launch the game as usual.
AMD users may suffer minor graphical glitches.
  1. Open the game's configuration tool.
  2. Check Override SLI.
  3. Check Enable SLI.
  4. Click Save and Launch to save changes.
