Directx problems 2 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 0
i use this programme to run win xp to play old games that won't run on win7. the first game i was going to try out was NFS5 but then something went wrong.

i have got a directx problem where it wouldn't install it becouse the operating system....
this is the thing it says when i try to;

DirectX does not install on current operating system

it is a version that came with a game (NFS5) and is from 1999.

when i try to play the game it says this;

Error: terminate execution?
you have DirectX 0. Please install Directx 7.
Could not load ".\drivers\dxgistryz"[FILE=\real\patch3\pc\set3d.c,LINE=273]

it gives me 2 options... Yes or no...

when i select yes;

it closes the error window.
we're back where we were before i opened the game

when i select no;

it gives me another error;
Error:
3D graphics hardware could not be initialized.
i hit 'OK'
and it closes that window
we're back where we were before i opened the game

so i tried to install a newer version (DX9) but i still got the same Error

then i searched the Error from the game (see below again) on google and it gave me links to 2 forums. dated 2000. it was a problem with the colour scheme from win 2K they solved it by changing their colour scheme from 24x to 16x or 32x.
Error: terminate execution?
you have DirectX 0. Please install Directx 7.
Could not load ".\drivers\dxgistryz"[FILE=\real\patch3\pc\set3d.c,LINE=273]

i tried the help stuff that EA delivers along the game. it basicly told me to reinstall DX7 by getting me straight to the disk and run dx7 setup from there. it still wouldn't do anything.

i was hoping there was a topic about DX here but there wasn't so i decided to make one myself.
i hope someone who know's how to fix this to see this and help me (and possible other users that get the same problem)
