Re: problem with my video card and sound card

No, that card is not compatible with Windows 98 or Windows 98 SE (Second Edition). It is only compatible with Windows 2000/XP/XPx64/MCE.

Compatibility meaning there are no drivers available for Windows 98/98SE.

How i download direct 3d device 9?

"direct 3d device 9" is the directX for Win98. For Windows 98 you have to install DirectX 8.1b. If you graphic card does not support 3D function you will not have "3D acceleration".

For DirectX 9, try this link @

Hope it helps.

Wedding dash n'est pas compatible avec direct 3d divices

It sounds like your graphic card isn't up to snuff. You're probably using an on board graphic card and since you're running XP, i'm assuming it's out of date. You will have spend about $30 to buy a new video card so your machine will be able to run Wedding Dash.

I have the 3d home architect deluxe 3.0. i can't install in a new pc. it's says windows 95/98/me &windows@ 2000. i just bought the pc this year.


That is a very tall order. All the current versions of Windows will not accept 3d Home Architect. And only the older versions will. No one can do anything about it. Sorry about that. Older software is not compatible with current OSs.

Windows 98, that's old, you might have sound card issues.. Make sure to update your sound card drivers and for the video I doubt 98 even supports flash player.

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Professional • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
• 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
• 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
• Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
• CD-ROM or DVD drive
• Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

you may/will also need software drivers for all hardware eg: printer,sound card, video card...good to gather BEFORE you upgrade.
Soooo, if you have the required compnents and some free time and a little patience it can be done.
Just buy a xp pro cd if you haven't one already and git er done..
