This site is a site for game development, not technical support. Your best bet would be to contact the developers or publishers of the game.

having said that, an error from GetDeviceCaps() usually means that you don't have any D3D drivers installed. Make sure that you have the latest graphics card drivers, and that you have DirectX installed (Which can be obtained through windows update).

Thanks mr Evil,

And my apologies to the forum for misposting.
Still all help is welcome. I have updated all drivers already and have the latest direcxtx.

Anyhow thanks, I will be back with some posts concerning new developments for games.
