    Re: How to avoid the Error message 'Direct 3D engine not created' from Windows XP?

    This error message indicates 2 things: either the Direct 3D component is disable in your system or may be it is not up-to-date.

    > To verify or make it enable, click -> Start/Run -> Type "dxdiag" in the text box appears -> enter

    > Click on the 'Display' tab. Now see if the option "Direct 3D Acceleration" is enabled. If not make it enable by checking the box next to it.

    > Update your "DirectX APIs" using Windows Update option. For this go to -> Control Panel -> Windows Update. For genuine Windows OS, Microsoft automatically installs the updates. Always restart your system after installing the updates.

    > Make sure you are using the latest versions of Video drivers for the game in your system.

    > Uninstall and then reinstall your game application using Control Panel.

    Hope this helps...
