Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion* Game Does Not Start

Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion* game does not start; instead, when the game is launched, a small window appears with an error message.

This game requires a graphics adapter with hardware T&L (Transform and Lighting) support to run. The listed Intel® graphics controllers do not support hardware T&L. T&L can be done by the processor (in software) with acceptable performance in most cases, but since the game specifically checks for hardware T&L, it fails to run.

This applies to:

Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller
Intel® 82852/82855 Graphics Controller Family
Intel® 82865G Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family
Intel® 82945G Express Chipset
Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family
