I bought "Spiderman Friend or Foe" PC DVD Game.
After installing the game, after clicking on the Game Icon on the desktop, I am getting the following message:
--A problem occurred when trying to initialize the Direct3D device.
The default video options have been restored.
If the problem persists, please make sure your drivers are up to date or contact your hardware vendor.--
.
What should I do to play the game?

Goto Start, Run and type DXDIAG.exe. Look on the Display tab and at the top right it should state what graphics card/chipset you have. Then download the drivers for that card.

Most likely your video card does not meet the requirement. I can tell that it's onboard, which is usually not a good thing.
