What is the issue?
- Lord of the Rings*: The Return of the King game doesn't run.
- Error: "Could not find any compatible Direct3D devices with the required capabilities. Make sure you have current drivers for your video card. The Lord of the Rings*: Return of the King* will now exit."
What is the cause?
By default, this game requires a graphics adapter with hardware T&L (Transform and Lighting) support to run. The integrated graphics controller of the desktop and mobile Intel® 945 Express Chipsets don't support hardware T&L. You can enable software T&L using a setting in the game configuration file.
For information on which Intel® Graphics Controllers support hardware T&L, see support for hardware transform and lighting (T&L).
