So the installation succeeded, no need to reinstall chimera.  The error is 
just a warning and chimera will work mostly work without outline 
highlights.  So you should fix it:

Chances are that your desktop is configured for 16 bit color -- the 
solution is change it to 24 or 32 bit color.  Go to Control Panel / 
Display / Settings, and change the "Color quality" to highest.

There is also the possibility that you need to install a newer version of 
the video driver from your graphics card vendor.  Or that you need a 
graphics card :-)

 	Hope this helped,
