: Please excuse my lack of knowledge, but kind of new to all this. Just downloaded a game for kids from internet, seemed to install just fine, but now when I click the application to open it, I get message:
: "A missing DLL file that is needed for program is not found :D3D8.DLL" or something similiar to those words.

: I thought I would just search for the driver and download it into that folder, but realized the driver download sites ask WHAT the driver is for, and I have absolutely no idea.

: (I have also uninstalled the entire program and downloaded it again, but have same problem)

: ANY help or info greatly appreciated.

: Thank you so much.

This seems to be a DirectX Problem. this file is part of DirectX 8, so first check if you have at least that version. Check also that you have a 3D accelerated Graphics Card with the right drivers. Run a program called DXDiag.exe to check if your Direct 3D is working properly (look in c:\windowd\system).

If you don't have it then go to to download the latest version.
