I reinstalled it but it didn't fix anything. I also followed some steps from the steam forum Step 1. Turn your steam off and disable auto-start.
"Step 1. Turn your steam off and disable auto-start.
Go to Metro 2033 install folder which should be located in
find a folder named "install" and open it
Step 3. reinstall the installer named
Step 4. Open Directx folder
and find DXSETUP.exe and run it.
Step 5. leave the Directx folder and open D3D11Install
NOTE: I'm not sure if everyone who don't have DX11 capable OS such as Vista or Windows 7 should do this.
Step 6. Once everything is done, restart the computer. Make sure Steam cannot autostart once you restart. When you restart, back to install folder.
And run PhysX_10.02.22_9.10.0222_SystemSoftware.exe
IF it says its uninstalling, let it complete and reinstall.
Step 7. Start Metro 2033 and cross your fingers!"
but when i tried to install the d3d11 i got a message that i already have it installed and i don't have to install it and when i tried to install the physx i got a message saying that i have already the latest version and i don't have to install this version as it is older. And the game crashed again with the same message again.
