Hi there,

I am have installed Oblivion on my XP home sp3 guest. When I try to run the game, it gets as far as the initial screen with Play, Data Files, Options, etc. I click on play and an error window appears with the following: skyrim failed to initialize renderer issue.

Can anyone give me some advice as to how to resolve this issue and get Oblivion rendering?

@cuposidere: Are you talking about TES V Skyrim or TES IV Oblivion?

Look here, maybe you will find your problem and a possible solution to it.

If I remember right, Oblivion develops lots of odd issues after awhile anyway. It happens faster with higher fps. This is solvable through a mod.

Have you tried running Steam with admin rights?
