Did you have an Nvidia card at the time?


Anyway not sure why it's needed for ATI cards users - PhysX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Anyway If a game complains it's needed than I would leave it installed, even if your ATI card doesn't use it. It may have some files that's tied into DX which may get screwed if removed. Just a guess.

BTW I just reinstalled Dragon Age and didn't get the option to not install it. So....

With that said, to the OP..... try updating/reinstalling the darn thing. If you still have the AEGIA control panel......

Click update and see what happens.

If you attempted to remove the files and messed things up, reinstall DA.

Let us know.

I would agree this would seem to be the case.
And no, I had a ATI card.

OK, so I remember having the conversation here where I said PhysX wasn't needed for ATI cards. Some of you said certain games would complain if it was removed.... well....

Seems Metro 2033 won't play with it missing. BTW I don't ever remember removing it, yet it somehow isn't installed on my system so I'm in the process of reinstalling it.... even though I don't have Nvidia cards.

Just FYI
