Issues fixed[edit]

"Internal Error" on launch[edit]

Setting up compatibility settings[citation needed]
  1. Right click on the ST.exe file (located in the installation folder) and select "Properties".
  2. Go to the "Compatibility" tab and "Run this program as an administrator".
  3. Run the ST.exe file to play the game.

If the issues still persist:

  1. Right click on the ST.exe file (located in the installation folder) and select "Properties".
  2. Go to the "Compatibility" tab and enable Compatibility Mode (set it to "Windows 98/ Windows ME")
  3. Run the ST.exe file to play the game.

Notes

Does not occur if installed in a non-standard folder, or if the user has full permissions to the installation folder.
This fix will also disable the intro videos. To enable them, set the compatibility mode to "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)"

External configuration program does not work[edit]

On modern Windows, the STConfig.exe external configuration program does not appear to save settings properly, regardless if "Apply" was clicked.

Run as administrator[citation needed]
  1. Right click on the STConfig.exe file and select "Run as administrator".

"The program can't start because d3drm.dll is missing"[edit]

Add d3drm.dll to the installation folder[citation needed]
  1. In the Submarine Titans CD, go to directx
  2. Open the directx.cab file
  3. Copy the d3drm.dll file and paste it into the installation folder.

“The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022). Click OK to close the application”[edit]

For Windows 10 OS, you need to enable the Legacy DirectPlay feature[citation needed]
  1. In the Windows search, look for Turn Windows features on or off
  2. In the opened window, search for Legacy Components
  3. Expand it and select DirectPlay
  4. Tick DirectPlay then click the OK button.
  5. Run the ST.exe file to play the game.
