What's your computer's spec? Maybe it's not up to the job? Modern games are pretty demanding.

what error messages are you getting?
It will no work with software such as CloneCD installed as it recoignises certain copy protection threats...

Official Splinter Cell Help Forum click here They might have a resolve - read the stickies before posting.

I guarantee they will need full PC specs + any error codes and/or a description of the problem.

"Help it won't start" won't cut it.

Splinter Cell needs very high spec AND updated drivers too. It's a great game but very hungry in resources. Make sure your antivirus is not running while Splinter Cell is loaded.
