"Error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw."

I get that when trying to start HU. I got the new patch files installed and tried changing my video settings to no avail. Any input on what's causing this error is greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: I installed the new directX, now it gives me
"Error 25: A critical error has occurred while initializing Direct3D"

This is an old bug that pops up every now and then, its a d2 issue not from the mod itself. Known fixes herehttp://www.google.com/m/url?client=ms-android-verizon&ei=3TPATpBOwY6WB_T7AQ&gl=us&hl=en&q=http://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid%3D20071106202120AA0opH7&source=android-browser-type&ved=0CBQQFjAA&usg=AFQjCNFFNDfnlDOkTniONW2za5niboUiFA
don't know if link will work im on my phone, if not just google it.

Thanks Dew. I downloaded and installed DirectX, ran the vid test, no additional options were available and I still get the same error when running HU. Is there another step I'm missing?

Depends, have you used it in the past? There may be some settings in your registry, but if you haven't used it you can ignore this.

Anything special happening in a log like d2ddmmyy.txt in your HUdir or in the eventlog (start run eventvwr) of your system?

What happens when you start -> run -> dxdiag and do the test(s) on the display tab?
