This is a solution to an Ogre Exceptions thread, for the second exception:

If you get this error:

Quote
OGRE EXCEPTION(3:RenderingAPIEException): Failed to create Direct3D9 Device: Not available in D3D9RenderWindows::createD3DResources at c:\Orgre_161_tag\RenderSystems\Driect3D9\src\OgreD3DRenderWindow.ccp (line 597)

Here is a way to fix it:

- click Start, then Run (or press windows key + R on your keyboard)
- type dxdiag, press Enter
- a window should pop up
- click the Display tab
- under DirectX Features, you should see an Enable button
- click the Enable button
- if a popup appears, click OK
- click Exit

Here's a screen of what to click:



Now running the game in Direct3D should work.

FAQ:
Why doesn't everyone else have to do this to get FH to work?
Most people should have "DirectX Direct Draw Acceleration" enabled by default. For some reason, yours isn't. So enabling it fixes said Ogre Exception.

I get a similar Ogre Exception 3, but it's slightly different. Will this fix it?
This fix works for:
OGRE EXCEPTION(3:RenderingAPIEException): Failed to create Direct3D9 Device: Not available
If yours is something else other than "Not available", then this fix may not work, but it's still worth a try.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Because it wanted to cross over. Into the light.
