Do you mean this problem?

ddraw:dsurface start -
dsurface.c:419: Tests skipped: Failed to create surface
Test failed: IDirectDraw7_QueryInterface returned 80004002
this is the last test seen before the exception
dsurface: unhandled
exception c0000005 at 00413A29
ddraw:dsurface done (4294967295)

I've seen
this also during my first tests. From my understanding the problem of
unhandled exception is caused by query interface failure. For me it looks
like that DirectDraw7 isn't supported on the system
