Windows 7: DirectX and Dragon Age 2

DirectX and Dragon Age 2

Hello everyone,

Hopefully someone here will be able to help me with a rather challenging problem I have getting Dragon Age 2 to work on my system. When I install and run the game I get the following error:

DirectX and Dragon Age 2-dragonageerror.png

I already tried the suggested fixes like upgrading drivers (ATI) and setting it to DirectX9. While reinstalling I noticed the game tried to install directx after giving a message that my current version was not sufficient. Strange as to my knowing and dxdiag backs me up, I do have the latest version installed. Out of curiosity I tried to install directX again manually and got this:

The error log showed me the following:

DirectX and Dragon Age 2-dxerror.png

I googled the data error (cyclic redundancy check but got nothing. I did do a windows 7 update as this was suggested on some other forum.

I installed Dragon Age 2 on my crappy laptop and there it ran straight away. DirectX also just reinstalls correctly when I do so on my laptop. Thus I believe the problem lies with DirectX but I am out of ideas.

Has anyone here ever encountered this before and knows how to fix it?

My specs:
Intel Core 2 DUO E8500
Gigabyte EP45-DS3L
ATI Radeon HD4850
Windows 7 Professional 32 bit

Hi and welcome to SF!
Have you tried Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer?
If so: start > type "cmd" without quotes at search bar and run as administrator; then type "sfc /scannow" without quotes too.
Let us know the results.

Hey Wallonn!

I actually tried all the different distributables but not the websetup... Guess what, it worked! Beats me why the websetup does work and the redistributables don't...

I feel pretty dumb now for not trying it, but you are a lifesafer for pointing it out. Tryed Dragon Age and now it works too so it was DirectX that was being the pain in my ass.

The scannow I had read about somwhere but it did not come up with anything either. Guess I'll never know what the problem was now though...

A big thanks again!

It seems more like one of the mysteries of the universe!

You're welcome!
Since your problem seems solved, I ask you to click the triangle in the upper right of this post and report as "solved". And if you believe that is worthy of my help, click on the scales beside the triangle, and report what you found my help.
And do not hesitate to go back to SF when you need it!
