It looks like your problem has to do with Intel Graphics Cards.

According to this article, you can solve the problem by updating your drivers, although many people say it doesn't work. Other say you have to get the pre-release version of Bodyshop.

Can't help you much I'm afraid. I guess I could help you update your drivers if you tell me your motherboard's model (I have the feeling you want to play this in a laptop with an integrated graphics card?), or your graphics card model.

Hi, i don,t think that it's graphic card problem i think you have to need file fixer that solves the problem for you automatically, just go to google and search the specific error that you have there will be show file fixer type software just download and install in your PC i think it will b work ....

Best of luck !
