Startup Crash--Failed to create Direct3D9 Device

I'm trying to play Ceville from, and have also been trying to play Kaptain Brawe. Ceville creates a log, and the exception lines are as follows:

Quote: D3D9RenderSystem::createRenderWindow "Ceville (en)", 1024x768 fullscreen miscParams: FSAA=Level 4 externalWindowHandle=1442430
21:36:34: D3D9 : Created D3D9 Rendering Window 'Ceville (en)' : 1024x768, 32bpp

21:36:35: *-*-* OGRE Shutdown

Here is my pertinent dxdiag:

I can't figure out why it can't open the window it needs to. I updated my graphics drivers, I downloaded the VC++redist, it won't complete the installation, even when run as administrator. dot net 3.5 won't install either. Directx won't install 9c cause I have dx 11. They look like fun games, can anyone help with this issue?

Thank you!
if it is also a directX9 error, please download this from MS: and run it. it will download the missing files.
