Exclamation Set Cooperative level failed & Set Display Mode failed direct-x messages

Set Cooperative level failed - This is a directX error message that indicates the computer is not able to change to full screen exclusive mode with the resolution set to 320 x 240. This mode is set when the Play button is clicked in Microstudio.

Set Display Mode failed - This is a directX error message that would result from a failure to set the resolution to 320 x 240.

These two error messages result from a failure of directX to initialize prior to executing the RW rendering code.

Make sure you have DirectX 8.0 installed. If not, you can download 8.0 free from this Microsoft link:

If you continue to have problems once you have 8.0 or higher, to help us diagnose your problem, follow the instructions at to run dxDiag and email the log results to Include the maker and model of the video card you are using. Also, make sure you describe why you are sending us the dxdiag log file. In this case it is one of the error messages mentioned in this topic. Please tell us that in the email.
