whenever i try to run the program this is exactly what it says.
Failed to Initialize 3D Graphics
Failed to initialize Direct3D 9. Make sure you have DirectX 9.0c installed, have drivers for your graphics card and have not disabled 3D acceleration in display settings.
Try these steps:
1 Make sure you have DirectX installed:
Go to this site to install it (if broken let me know or fix it :)):
Follow the instructions to install DirectX.
2 Update your graphics card drivers:
The right place to get them depend on the brand of your machine. Start by visiting your computer manufacter's site (i.e dell, hp, acer, etc.) If you can't find anything try these:
3 Test that your video card works:
In Windows open a "Run As.." dialog by holding the Windows Key + "R". When the dialog opens type "dxdiag" (without quotes) and press OK. Switch to the "Display" tab and verify that "DirectDraw Acceleration", "Direct3D Acceleration" and "AGP Texture Acceleration" are enabled.
Well... it says that: Does you computer have a graphics card with drivers installed? What Windows version are you using?

I had the same problem with my notebook, and it seems running it as an administrator solves it
