Are C&C Renegade and Direct3D problems connected?

  corc2 16:02 23 Jun 03

I bought C&C Renegade today. When i tried to install it i got an invalid page fault error and it will not install. I've run dxdiag and my graphics card has failed direct3D test. Could the two problems be linked? My system is
AMD Athlon 1800+
NVidia Geforce2 400 (with latest drivers)
Directx version 8.0 (i believe it is 8.1)
The error message states a fault in setup.exe.
The directx error is at step 8.
Should i upgrade to directx 9 - i've heard they are causing problems? Any help much appreciated.
