I ran this because of the opengl at the top.

What graphicscard do you have, and which driver are you using?

dude,

The installing program couldn't able to talk to the graphic driver. That's the error.

" Direct3D9 is not available without OpenGL "

please check with www.winehq.com for the error fixing. There would be some list of windows program installation solutions available which could run with error and without error.

Did you install the nVidia graphics driver with the driver installer of your system? I assume that you did not, and without it it will definitely not run.

It looks to me like your graphics drivers aren't configured properly. Did you configure them yourself in X's config, or did you let the nvidia installer do it?

Otherwise put SET gxAPI "opengl" in your config.wtf and see if it'll start that way.

This now what the config.wtf file looks like and it didn't work.

Code:
SET readTOS "-1"

SET readEULA "-1"

SET readScanning "-1"

SET readContest "-1"

SET checkAddonVersion "1"

SET showToolsUI "1"

SET readTerminationWithoutNotice "-1"

SET playIntroMovie "3"

SET installType "Retail"

SET locale "enUS"

SET expansionMovie "1"

SET movie "1"

SET patchlist "enUS.patch.battle.net:1119/patch"

SET gxAPI "opengl"


How do I do this change he is stating?

Moved to Games at the OP's request.

darkstarbyte, do you have more than one logged-in user session at a time? Often, hardware acceleration is limited to the first session.
