    The problem details are:

    I have a Windows Vista Home Premium machine with Intel Graphics card.
    The DirectX version 10.

    When I run my application which uses the API GetAvailableVidMem the
    gives an error "A hardware only DirectDraw object creation was attempted but
    driver did not support any hardware."

    When I run dxdiag.exe on my machine,in the Display Tab it shows me
    DirectDraw Accleleration
    and AGP Texture Acceleration-Not Avialble.I think the problem is because of
    this(I think so
    because when a disabled DirectDraw Accleleration on another machine with
    Windows Xp and
    DirectX 9.0C it gave me the same error)
