Problem with DirectX for a Win95/98 Game

I'm having a problem installing an old Win95/98 game on my Mac using Wineskin. For reference, I'm running Sierra and using the 1.3.18 engine, which has worked best with the newer games in the series. The game is the first in the Nancy Drew series called Secrets Can Kill from 2001 (not the remastered version, which was made for both Mac and PC).

When I try to run the game, it starts but gives me this error:

InitDirectDraw(), GetGDISurface - DDERR_NOTFOUND - Requested item was not found.

Based on my googling, this seems to be an issue with DirectX, but I don't know how to solve it since all the solutions are for Windows computers.

Thanks for your help
