  1. UPDATE (posted 15 May 2010): Here is THE solution to the problem caused by the IE security update that does NOT require you to remove IE8 OR remove security patches:

    To anybody using XP SP3 having problems loading the game (ie. the game won't start, no error message, the processes start for a second and then quit):

    The solution: download d3dx9_37.dll and msidcrl40.dll and put them in your game folder

    www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?d3dx9_37

    www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msidcrl40

    I followed this solution and put the files in the Program FilesActivisionQuantum of Solace(TM) directory and loe and behold the gamse started and seems to play fine. A simple fix and so easy to add into a patch yet STILL nothing from Activision or Windows Live on this problem!

    Microsoft says it's ok to uninstall this update,as long as you are not having any Active X addon Issues,and to try installing the next cumulative update for explorer 8,when it becomes available.Enjoy the Game.Hope it works for you. "

  2. NOTE: the suggested solution, of uninstalling certain specific IE8 security patches is only temporary as newer IE8 security updates will overwrite those fixes. Also not discussed is how removing the security patches may compromise your PC.

    At present (26 Dec 2009, yes it was a Xmas present) the ONLY reliable way of getting the game to work is to uninstall IE8 completely and use another browser. I reluctantly did this, opting for the popular Firefox, and am enjoying the game, so far without problems. (See my blog for links.)
