SOLVED: Rainbow Six 3 Gold (Raven Shield) Steam will not launch or start on Windows 7

If you are like me and your game stopped starting (nothing launches even though the process Ravenshield.exe starts) then this is the solution for now.

Windows 7 x64 - Rainbow Six 3: Gold (Steam)
Issue: Game not starting with Steam.

Solution 1: Just click the  "DisableShims" file from here and it will work again.

Solution 2: Patch the .exe with this one from original game and it will still be playable. however it seems to not show that you are in game on Steam friends list. But thats not really a big deal.


If you have suggestions or other solutions please post in #techsupport at the community discord which is
