Anyone help with problem installing Chessmaster 9000 on my laptop using Windows Me? Seems to install ok but when I try to run the programme I get the following three error messages and the programme will not open.

1 Error Starting Program The D3D8DLL file is linked to missing export DDRAW.DLL:DdEntry12

2 C:\Program Files\UBISoft\Chessmaster9000\Chessmaster.exe The operating system denied access to the specified file

3 A device attached to the system is not functioning

I had no problems installing this software on my desktop pc running Windows XP Home

Thanks VoG. Will try later today although I am not optimisti as Chessmaster installed DirectX from the installation disk.

VoG - Problem now sorted thanks, but only by installing XP (which I was going to do in the future anyway). Had tried to download DirectX but for some reason it would not load and open. Thanks for the suggestion anyway!
