    FAQ:

    Problem: I have installed "Silent Threat" but the same old Freespace keeps coming up. How do I play the Silent Threat campaigns?

    Solution: The game cannot be started from the launcher as the reference card refers to. Silent Threat can be found within the "Campaigns" menu within the original Descent Freespace game. You will need to start the original game and then within the Campaigns section you can select Silent Threat as your current campaign.
