I have recently been trying to install a game made for Windows 95 titled Thief: The Dark Project. Unfortunately it seems to be having a problem with some sort of DirectX limitation. I am extremely inexperienced in dealing with wine so please if there is any more information I can give you, feel free to ask.

Upon activation on the install executable (wine setup.exe) the install process appears to begin only to disappoint me when the following error message arrives...

This product can not be installed on Windows NT due to a Microsoft DirectX (tm) limitation.

I've searched through the tested applications database and found the tests for this game and it seems as thought others have managed to get the game working. You can find the page here > Theif: The Dark Project (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=442).  I have also searched the forums for something relative to this but I do believe my knowledge of wine is extremely limited, and thus hindering my ability to find a solution.

Any ideas are welcome.
