When I decided to fire up Ice Station Santa for a second playthrough, I found that once getting past the launcher and clicking "Launch Game", the game window would remain black, it would stop loading data, and its processor usage would drop to 0. I tried running it in windowed mode, deleting the prefs.prop file, even rebooting, but nothing seemed to work. Then I noticed I left an empty folder lying about in the \Pack\data folder. I deleted this empty folder and then the game launched successfully. Was this part of a security measure to deter the ripping of game resources, or is it just an honest mistake in the game's programming?
