    Everytime I try to start my Vanilla Civ 4 game, an error code pops up that says "Failure to initialize renderers - Check DirectX version and Graphic Settings." My computer operates on Windows XP (service pack 3), and my DirectX version is 9.0c, as included with the CD-ROM.
    I have already ran dxdiag.exe and there were no problems detected with the DirectX version.

    Is there any way to fix this error and can anyone help explain why it is happening?
