try this

This seems to be a known issue with "Diablo/Diablo II"

error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw.
Steps to solve these problems:

* Rerun the Diablo II Video test program.
* Download and install the updated video drivers from your video card or computer manufacturer.
* If problems persist, run the Video Test program and set the video mode to Direct Draw.

when i try download a directx it says its not neccesary cus i allrdy got a newer one or better.
but i read on some forums when i search'd on google that ppl say i need a older directx cus the directx 10/11 dont have the same things like the old ones got, to play d2.

Edit : which one is it of these ? http://www.travel.ag.ru/special/diablo2/support/d2/vendors.htm , its hard to see, lol.
