Sounds like your video card isn't supported which means you can't start up the game, even if you got a new video card though you would need to upgrade your CPU as well.

Probably need a new video card...I had to upgrade my Nvidia GeForce 6-series because I was getting the same message. I picked up an NVidia GeForce 9400 GT 512MB at Best Buy and the game works fine now. Only 99.99 at Best Buy, plus they have one for 69.99 that will run DoWII as well.

Sorry I was looking at something else!

My video card is RADEON X300 Series (ATI Radeon Graphics Processor (0x5B60)

Is that going to be able to load the game?
