The minimum requirements will tell that SH3 does not run on any OS above XP

Apparently it can be played with Windows 7. Some people at subsim.com claim they have it running on Windows 7 with no problem.

Head there if you want to find a possible solution.

I have SHIII running on both Vista 64 and Win 7 64. Do you have a video card that can handle what SHIII needs to run? You do not have any specs listed so we cannot help you.
