What is restarting?

Question

I have installed a game called close combat on my system-it is an older game from 2000-in fact it is one of a series -i tried with both sequels i have-battle of the bulge and invasion normandy and got the same results with them both. Anyway i get through the entire setup process and i tell the computer that i want to play the game-after a few screens and selecting my team etc i get the following message-

"cannot access surface for lock"

there is no error code or anything and again this occurred on both of my games. Is there a way to get around this problem?

Thanks in advance

Pete

Instead of going straight to the game after installation try either pressing the key F5 or just restarting it may help.
