In Rocket Commander XNA, I get a NoSuitableGraphicsDeviceException from the Run method. The message is "Unable to create the graphics device" My laptop has NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 and the other XNA programs work fine. Any suggestions

Rocket commander probably requires pixel shader 2.0, which the fx go 5200 does not have. Unfortunately, that means that you will not be able to run the game unless you get a new graphics card.

Laptop GPUs are quite complicated to work with, I'd recommend trying it on a Desktop first. The Go versions of NVIDIA GeForce cards are not the same as their desktop brothers. I guess you could check if it does have pixel shader 2.0 support and make sure that you have the latest drivers, and all the requirements for XNA --> .NET Framework 2.0, DirectX 9 runtime(latest is Febuary 2007) and the framework.

I tried the pixel shader 2.0 test that comes with the documentation and it passed. I haven't found any updated drivers. The error occurs on the Run method so it isn't too helpful in identifying the problem.
