Windows 7: Game not working in Windows 7

Game not working in Windows 7

Hi I have a game which worked fine on Windows Vista. After upgrading to 7, I run the game but an error comes up saying:

'Direct3D failed to initialise please check if you have Directx 8.1 or higher installed'


I don't understand because the game worked perfectly fine on Vista and i checked dxdiag and I have Directx 11 installed.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, 2GB RAM, and VIA C7-M 1.2GHz processor. My graphics card is VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM.

Help please?
