I was getting exactly the same error message about DirectX7 and "0", (as if there is such a thing)!
But now I have got the demo working! Eureka!!
What was the problem, you ask?
The darned colour depth! ARRGGGG!!!
I have my desktop set to 24bit colour and the game apparently only reacts to 16 or 32bit colour depths. Once I dropped down to 16bit I could run the 3D setup fine (Matrox G400 came up right away) it started just like that.
Why oh why must these things be so arcane?
Now I'm concerned whether the full game will run properly. Anyone had problems going from the demo to the full game on their W2000 setup?
