Failed to enumberate any DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapters in this system!


  • Not sure if this is the right section but I hope it is!

    When I go to run the sims 2, it gives me the following error message:

    "Failed to enumberate any DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapters in this system!

    Please make sure you have a DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest manufacturer provided driver.

    The application will now terminate..."

    I have direct x 11, nVidia GeForce 9200 video card. When I run dxdiag, I get the following information, and there is no way for me to test DirectDraw etc... it just says it's on.
