It's not supposed to work unless you enable OpenGL mode in this game. The demo works fine here.

Even with -opengl added as command parameter, it still displays the same message.

I did not find how to submit a new ticket, so I am appending this one, since it is very similar.

When World of Warcraft is launched (with 3d acceleration enabled) it displays "World of Warcraft was unable to start 3D acceleration. Please make sure DirectX 9.0c is installed and your video drivers are up to date." and does not start.
