Hello all. Could some please tell me how to sort this out. A friend of mine has just install a Hercules 3D prophet 64mb 4500 tv out into his pc. He's running 98se, 1800xp cpu, 256mbram. He has Dx8.1. When he tries to play Indana Jones game, he gets a message saying "(render) Unable to initialize D3D to your system. U need to up date to Dx8.1 or later, & make sure that Ur video card supports hardware transformation & lighting". ThankU.

Thanks for that. As I understand it, U have to B on the internet to download this file, even if I download DX9, U only get a type of link, then U have to jump on the net from the pc U have just installed 2. I tried that at the weekend on someone's pc. i thought I'd downloaded Dx9 & burnt it to cd, then took round to some1's pc, it kept asking to connect to the internet. I can not do that with R friends as he's not on the internet.

dx9 is on the last few editions of the PCA cover disc, you can extract from there onto CD,or have someone can email it to you.
