Thank you so much for your help!  What you said makes 90% sense. The second paragraph about loading a native DirectX dll does not make sense, so some clarification on that would be much appreciated.  Thanks for being willing to download the demo of the game. I saw that demo available as well, but I don't think I ever actually downloaded it because I cannot say I know any German, but it may be helpful for testing.  Thanks again for your help and please let me know what you find!
