Question Need a small win98 prog, to open and close a directX screen...

I recenlty got a sealed copy of Montezuma's Return, a nice game
due to a bug (I assume) the 3DFX version does not start the game if you have a voodoo3 (that I have) , but there is a work-around... If you open a directX screen , or do something that opens a directX screen before the game, then it works flawlessly... I have no idea why is this, since it is a Glide game, but I suspect it uses directX to display the intro-video (that is where the 3dfx version hangs for ever, before it tries to play the video...) I have installed directX 8.1 and it works fine in all other games...
also there are NO patches, and I think I do have the last version, 1.23W (some others I saw on web where 1.19 , 1.11...)
So I am looking for a small prog to put it in a batch file, that it would run before the 3DFX version... preferably something that opens a screen and then quits immediatelly... anyone heared of such a prog?
