I am trying to instal RA2 on a new pc and I have hit a snag. I am getting an error message that states "could not create the direct 3d device".
I am using XP as the opperating system. It does have internal video, 64 mb. I would not expect that speed 2.8, or ram, 256 is the issue.

I was told by two other guys that they also could not get RA2 to load up on their new PCs. Any solutions to get me back into trashing the hordes?
Thanks

do you have the right graphics drivers installed?

You really do need a decent graphics card thing, no point getting a computer that fast with integrated graphics. I presume your problem will dissappear when you get a decent card, though until then try to update drivers I guess.

Rob plays on a 4mb integrated. I'd stick some different drivers on it and get the latest DirectX, etc.

It may be the drivers. I'll try that. I ran RA2 on an old PC that barely had the min specs and only had about 4 MB of internal video ram. I am now running RA2 on my home PC ~2.4 gHz, 500 RAM, without any problems, however I did upgrade the video card, agp 128 mb, so I could play General
Thanks for the help guys

I know what you feel like now, have to use a Radeon 9550 thing which doesn't even work, I can get 4-15 seconds of any game before it freezes. Go me. Can get 2 mins of ra2 though.
