Hi

My girlfriend downlouded a trial of pandoras box earlier today but after a perfect install it wont start it gives the error message
"unable to create directdraw surface Make sure directx is installed and try again"

Wat is this ? directx is installed with windows not ?

thats strange ... the very latest DirectX is bundled with XP


if you go to Start > Run and type dxdiag


a DirectX diagnostics tool should pop up in a few seconds ...

go to the dispaly tab and see if Direct Draw is enabled ....

theres a heap of troubleshooters etc there too...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
