    Check if you have the latest DirectX version in your computer (Start -> Run... type DXDIAG in the field. Now locate DirectX Version:. Is it older than DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) ? If yes than download the latest at:

    Note: your Windows OS copy should be legal

    http://3d-analyze.softwareandgames.com if the issue is relative to directx and your not using steam, use this program messing around with the ticks activating directx9 until u can get it to work (or dx8 if 9 doesnt work)

I Have found the problem!!!!! I was having the same problem as you guys... You shoud go to start-run-in open box type DXDIAG then go to Display, press Test DirectDraw. When you have finished press Test Direct3d. When you have finished run the game. I have done this and it worked.

To fix it go to microsoft and download the lates directX9 ordorectX10 and install it to be sure that it will work.
After that the game is still doesn't work. But..go to start->run->andtype "dxdiag" to see dialog box for directX settings.
On the "display" go and check your DirectX Features - DirectDrawAccelaration and Direct3D Accelaration.
If they are disabled, you have just to anable them and and test if they workproperty. And thats all. Enjoy the game.

I need driver 1303c to install my webcam


Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps.

It seems that your spouse downloaded a "trojan" -- software that claimed to scan, but itself is a computer-virus.

Have you tried to use "System Restore" to go "back" in time to a checkpoint before your spouse installed/ran that software?

Can i play supreme commander with ati radeon 9200?


I's sure it is if you have the requirement to run this game. Include also 1GB Memory or up.
You need to install all the required support program to run this game, like DirectX9.0c and Microsoft Runtime SDK 6.0 or up version.
