I downloaded a demo of Codename 47 and this is what happens.

When I click on it it goes to a screen saying I have one hour of play time left. I click try know and a black screen taking up most of the left/top of the screen pops up. A message box then arrives saying.

Fatal error.
Direct3d: no suitable hardware found

This happens for all the other games I have on my PC, namely black&white and Mediveal: total war.

An help would be appreciated, thanks

Graphics card model? Driver version? DirectX version?

Right-click My Computer, then properties. Now, I don't have the English version of Windows, but the second tab from the left should be the one. There you can view different stuff.
