Hi everyone,

I am using TC 3.0 . I'm getting an error as.. BGI error:graphics not initialized. But I've used initgraph. So, i thought i'll use this

/* read result of initialization */
   errorcode = graphresult();
   /* an error occurred */
   if (errorcode != grOk)
      printf("Graphics error: %s\n", grapherrormsg(errorcode));
      printf("Press any key to halt:");

      exit(1);    /* terminate with an error code */

I'm getting an error.. Graphics error: Device driver file not found <EGAVGA.BGI> Press any key to halt.

What does this mean? Please can anyone help me? Am i missing an obvious point?? Plzzz help !
