Creatures 2 on windows 7 error.

Whenever I try to run creatures 2 on windows 7 I get the following error:
"The error [DDERR_INVALDPERAMS] has been detected when attempting to draw game sprites.
Please check that your desktop is in 16-bit video mode, Microsoft DirectX is correctly installed and that you have the latest driver software for yoru graphics card. Extra information: C : \Programfiles (x86)\Creatures 2\Images\dung.S16"

I have tried compatibility mode and I have also tried using the hexden fix, but neither of them have worked. I installed creatures 2 from my creatures trilogy CD and all the other games from it work fine.

I hope there is another fix for this that doesn't involve getting the GOG version (I don't want to have to pay again for a game I already paid for D: ) or using a virtual operating system.

There's a fix listed here. Hope it helps. :)

Neither look forward where there is doubt nor backward where there is regret. Look inward and ask not if there is anything outside you want, but whether there is anything inside that you have not yet unpacked.
