    Make sure you have the latest DirectX installed, and the latest drivers for your integrated graphics card.

    The error indicates that the onboard graphics doesn't have some of the hardware capabilities required to run the game but that might just be an error caused by software (bad or old drivers) - I don't see why the Unichrome graphics couldn't play the game, unless it requires advanced shaders or something.
