    We have customer with the error message
    "Failed to initialize 3D rendering Make sure you have Directx9 and video card drivers installed"

    He is running XP with DirectX9.0c. What else must be checked to be save that unity is running properly ?

    thanks

    Probably best to ask the customer to perform a dxdiag and send you the result. Might be more details in the Unity player.log file.

    The dxdiag output says
    DirectDraw-Accel : not available
    Direct3D-Accel: not available
    AGPTexture Accel: not available

    It´s an Intel 945GME Embedded Graphics Card.

    Is it possible to get these properties enabled ?

    Maybe this? But this is a very long in-the-tooth-integrated graphics chip; does your minimum spec really need to be any computer that still lights up?
