I use ubuntu to install virtualbox.

I use virtualbox to install xp and enable 3D on settings and reinstall guest addition on safe mode with 3D support.

Then I install dxwebsetup.exe and reboot.

Why I run game for test it still says 'couldn't initialize directdraw'?

Am I missing something? How to fix it?

Thank you~
