The problem is with your video card, not with directx. This game needs a faster card, capable of using full 3D rendering.

You'll need to find out what kind of open slots (PCI or PCI Express) are available on your motherboard, and then start shopping for a graphics card.

I recommend spending some time on gamer websites asking other people what the best card for the money is for your PC. If you have any gamer friends, they might be able to help you as well.

Installing a graphics card is fairly easy. If you find one you like and want help installing it, you can probably find help here.

When I installed the spiderwick, it didn't have any problems. but when it finished and I wanted to run the game, it can't.
it says "Wrong disc inserted. Please insert the original "Spiderwick Spiderwick" CD/DVD. Please have a look at http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=wrongdisc for further, more detailed information.".
i have tried with crack, but it also didn't work. so what will I do now to solve this problem??

Direct3D 6? Wow, the game must be way older than your computer. You probably installed DirectX 10 or later. There were major changes after DirectX 9. The software routines to manage graphics hardware acceleration through DirectX 10 or newer are probably very different from DirectX 6, so the game's graphic controller interface can't find them.

Try going into the game properties (right-click on the main executable file and select Properties from the pop-up menu).
Set it to run in XP compatibility mode and see what happens.

Check to see if the game has the option to run without hardware acceleration. If this provides acceptable performance, that is your answer.

If necessary (and if Microsoft still makes it available), try installing DirectX 6. Vista may snag on it and make you remove it and reinstall a newer version, but it's worth a shot if the other fixes don't work.

2. Download The 3D Analyzer
3. Extract the files to any directory
4. Open 3DAnalyze.exe
5. Press the big SELECT button
6. Find your gamename.exe (or whatever it might be named in your game CD)
7. Select it
8. Under Directx 8.1 and 9.0 options - > Hardware Limits (cap bits) Check off emulate pixel shader caps
