What the program is looking for (and requires to play) are the microsoft directX drivers. You can get them from
http://www.microsoft.com/directx/
DirectX is a set of drivers that allow games to run, and most games require that you have these drivers installed.
The latest version is directX 6

I can't download the driver into my computer. My computer tends to hang or sotp loading and I can't even get out of that screen. Have to turn off my computer totally to restart. What had happened? Is my computer not compatible with the software? Is there any other way to get the directx driver?

What you need is the directx driverS plural you will need them all to play the game.
Without them you cant play thr game.
You can download them at:
http://www.microsoft.com/directx/
That's the best thing to do.

Are you saying the computer hangs when you are downloading the file or does this happen after you have downloaded the file and are trying to install the driver. If it happens while downloading then the problem is with your modem, you may need to reinstall your modem drivers. As to other sources you might check any games you have, a lot of them are shipped with directx drivers.
