    OS: win 2003 Prof.

    i right click on hte desktop and choose property, then settings -> advanced ->troubleshoot, i make hte hardware acceleration to full.

    then I should be able to enable my directX option. but it still won't let me .

    Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer.

    my video card is voodoo3..

    To activate Direct3D and DirectDraw (DirectX), go to Start/Run and type "dxdiag". Click OK. Click on the Display tab, then click on the Enable button for DirectDraw and Direct3d.

    Windows 2003 is not a gaming or home platform, it is for networks and businesses. I would not be surprised if DirectX or in fact many games don't work properly if at all on it.

    In any case it is highly unlikely that you have purchased this software, but if I am mistaken :rolleyes: then please contact Microsoft support and they will give you further details.
