Hello, recently I have just installed a game onto my PC called Sniper Art of Victory, I installed it correctly but whenever I try to load the game up a message comes up saying the game has stopped working. I then have the option to close the program, or search online for a solution. I have searched online but nothing comes up after I click that option. I am very confused as in whats wrong with the game, I have tried uninstalling the game, running it as administrator - even when I use Command Prompt but nothing seems to work and the message still comes up saying the game has stopped working. I have not had a chance to play it, so I do not know if something is wrong with the game itself or my computer?
When I view the problem details it says:

Does the game require Hardware transform and lighting ?? and does the video card you have support Hardware transform and lighting ? - Normally that message is a symptom of having a system with an Intel chipset onboard video - Up until very recently Intel refused to adopt the hardware standard for Hardware transform and lighting trying to use software instead but many games do a check at launch for Hardware support and will not run if it is not found thus the Intel chipset cards can not run these games.

From Intel's website :

The following Intel® processor graphics and integrated graphics support hardware Transform and Lighting (T&L):

* 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000
* Intel® HD Graphics
* The integrated graphics controller of the Intel® G35, G41, G43, G45, G965, GL40, GL960, GM45, GM965, and GS45 Express Chipsets

Older Intel® integrated graphics products do not have hardware support for T&L. In most games, transform and lighting calculations can be performed on the processor with acceptable performance. A small number of games that specifically check for hardware T&L support may fail to run.
