I have just downloaded the full version of America Army onto my pc, it seemed to install ok. But when I try to load the game, I get the error message

"GetDeviceCaps failed(D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE) on adapter 0.

History: GetDeviceCaps <- UD3DRenderDevice::Init <- UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine"

Clicking ok closes the window and takes me back to the desktop. Any ideas what it is??

I have also tried to register for the forum on the AA website but keep getting an invalid nickname error preventing me from registering. I have tried lots of combinations i.e. hwgdhsbdhs but all come back invalid. Is there a known problem with the AA sites boards?
