I have PC and netbook. Their screen resolutions are 1600х900 and 1024x600. Of course, I cannot choose the onest resolution because of this error:

The Requested Fullscreen Mode Is Not Supported By Your Video Card. Use Windowed Mode Instead?

How to solve this problem? DirectX even allows to see all the possible resolutions.

You can use the desktop resolution as the size of your window. If I remember correct, you can query the desktop size with GetSystemMetrics and SM_C[X/Y]FULLSCREEN, and then use that resolution for your fullscreen window.
