There are three causes for this error:

  1. The drivers for the graphics card are not installed properly, therefore a new installation is recommended.

  2. The DirectX is not fully updated. Download the latest version of Version 9 and the game should start.

  3. Your graphics card is not powerful enough to run the game because it lacks features needed by the game.
