if you could give us the version of windows you are using, the game it errors on, and some of the hardware you have, it'd sure help us to look it up.
in the mean time, try that link for an explanation. it might help you solve the problem, or at least get an idea of what's causing it. there are also articles at microsoft too, concerning drivers, directx, etc, but until we can get the particulars, it'd be hard to pin it down.

email@example.com is the email address for support on this product, seems they don't have much in the way of online docs. http://www.strategyfirst.com/en/downloads/ is their downloads section.

have you applied any patches to this game? i noticed several for different versions. they don't say what the patches fix though. as far as drivers for the video, have you updated those to the latest ones? you can also try to slow down directx acceleration, see if that helps. this error refers to the math co-processor driver, what cpu and motherboard do you have?
