Soldier Of Fortune Platinum Edition Load Library Defsnd.dll

Hi guys so I wanted to go back and play Soldier Of Fortune (Platinum Edition) again because I felt nostalgic and it has been over 10 years since I last played this awesome game, so after I successfully installed the game on my Windows 7 64-bit PC, I renamed SoF.exe to MOHAA.exe after I created a new shortcut for SoF.exe, I tried launching the game for the first time, I get these two errors (see two pictures below.) what's odd is that this game worked on my Laptop no problems, (it has Windows Vista 32-bit.) but on my Windows 7 64-bit desktop I get these two error messages: (Click The Link For Pictures.)

I tried looking up for a fix for this "defsnd.dll" through google and yahoo, but definitely found nothing but a complete blank.

Posting this on multiple forums so that it would help others in this situation with SoF.

Renaming the .exe may be the problem. I have SOF Platinum loaded on my Win 7 64 bit system and it runs without problems. I haven't renamed anything.

Even if I don't change the name of the .exe the game still wouldn't work but bring me to this black screen, I went to various forums and thats what they recommended me to do, to rename it to "MOHAA.EXE" does your 64-bit Windows 7 have OpenGL support? I really want to get this game to work but this "Load Library defsnd.dll" error thing is still not letting me play after I changed from SoF.exe to mohaa.exe

Have you tried uninstalling, restarting the PC, reinstalling?

I've actually tried everything, but I figured out a solution that worked, I downloaded the community version and installed it and took all of its .DLL and sofplat.isu and uninstalled it, after that I reinstalled the Platinum edition and replaced all the .DLL's and the sofplat.isu in the Platinum edition folder then boom it worked
