Running vista sp3 keep getting " Failed to initialize direct x" message when trying to run. Tried changing compatability mode to 2000 but no luck. Anyone have any ideas why this happens?

Try compatability mode for xp sp3.
If not,try downloading the latest version of direct x.

Well unless pc world are selling illegal copies its genuine! Tried 2000 compatability mode and it still doesnt work.It downloaded DX9 is it worth trying a more recent version if there is one?Willing to try anything now!

As i said.
Try compatability mode for xp sp3.
Go to microsoft.com and download the latest direct x.
Vista uses directx 10 so not sure about that.

Have you updated your graphics card drivers? What graphics card are you using?

I dont have the option to run in xp3 mode, its not on the drop down menu.Card is Radeon x600 256 hypermemory. Driver updated 3 weeks ago so should be ok. I am on the verge of giving up with this!

There's your problem. You graphics card isn't up to the job.

From the official system requirements...

Video card with support DirectX 9.0c/Shader3.0, NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or is better, ATI Radeon X1600 or it is better;

The X600 only has Shader 2.0 and isn't powerful enough to run the game.

That should read...

Minimum:
Graphics: DirectX®9.0c/Shader3.0, NVIDIA® GeForce®6600 series or higher*, or ATI Radeon™ X1600 or higher

Recommended:
VRAM 512 MB, NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600 series or higher, or ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 or higher
