This question is open with pending answers, but none have been accepted yet
check your minimum requirments... at least dual core and 1gig of ram, video card nust be 256 pcie Operating system must be XP SP3 and Vista 32bit
Try waiting for some time,it will work.
This is a basic ? have you reinstalled the game, cuz when i installed mine it game me an error msg and so i reinstalled and it worked that time
I am having this same issue. I reinstalled the game but when I double click the game's icon it gives me the hourglass for a few seconds and then nothing happens. any suggestions?
I had this problem too and found a solution at www.techsupportforum.com

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. "
Same problem. Try to run the game, but it won't start. The fix listed doesn't work; that update is not in my add/remove programs menu at all.

Mr Rebman88 is right... have the same problem myself... Removing the sacurity patch 969897 solves the problem for ONE day... then IE8 finds that the patch is gone...and gets the next CUMULATIVE security patch.. i.e. a newer one with a higher number that once again stops the game from starting... so removing that one will make you able to play again, and the IE 8 patches... I think you get the idea... SO Microsoft and Activision MUST fix this together... BUT Activision doesnt want to touch this OLD game so we paying customers are left with a practically no-starting game or we have to compromise security... (after you removed the patch, you are asked to reboot... Use the turn off WITHOUT installing a vital patch...otherwise you just reinstalll it on shutdown.
Please note that the KB number is changing as Microsoft makes newer cumulative patches... so remove the latest one under Internet Explorer 8 patches... and try ... UNTIL ACTIVISION FIXES THIS BAD BEHAVIOR THAT NEEDS TO BE "SECURED" BY Micorsoft .
"Pgtest " is correct the suggested solution, of uninstalling certain specific IE8 security patches is only temporary. 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.
UPDATE (posted 15 May 2010): Here is THE solution to the problem caused by the IE 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
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 nothing from Activision or Windows Live on this problem!
So feel free to ignore the other solutions that follow, unless this does not work for you.
