    Hello there !!!

    you are getting that particular error because you are not having
    video Plugin installed into your machine which are required to support the
    graphic and video of the game that you gonna to play on the machine.

    and the DirectDraw is the name of the video plugin that is missing into your system.
    so what you need to do is to download and install the plugin into your machine.

    you can download it from the website :-

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
