I recently purchased an ASUS ENGTX 480 graphics card. DirectX11 capable games i own like Alien Vs. Predator 2010 and Lost Planet 2 will not launch in DirectX11 i get Error messages like this from LP2 (ERR03: Failed to initialize DirectX11) yet when i launch them in DirectX9.0c it works perfectly fine.

It also puzzles me that when I execute dxdiag under the display tab it tells me that my DDI version is 10.1 yet frustrating as well that I can’t play the games that are DirectX11 capable. Here is my dxdiag.

Have you installed all the redistributable packages on the install dvd's ?
They often contain things like microsoft packages frame,net, visual C updates and direct X updates as well. If you bought and installed the game from Steam, these would all be auto installed.

Is that the Beta version of Windows 7? The beta version doesn't have DX11.

Make sure you install the absolute latest DirectX runtime files:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?Fami...

Doing so will likely fix any possible DX errors or issues. Do that and see if it fixes your problem.


I have download the web installer and when i run the installer it tells me that my Dx is up to date for the latest driver.

You wouldn't happen to have a 2nd harddrive or another partition you could try installing a fresh install of windows on, would you? I'd be interested to know if this is a hardware issue or a software one. I'd think it's a software issue.

I have this same problem and I have yet to find any way around except for a fresh os install that I have yet to prove that it works. :(

I have a internal 250GB HDD i can put into my rig yet I also believe it's a software problem and not hardware. Like nforce4max i am looking for a work around without a fresh install of the OS. I'm going to backup all my important stuff to my 1TB external HDD and will reply to let everyone know if this works for a possible work around.

Ya, sounds like a good drive to do a test install, to see if a fresh OS install would fix the issue. If that doesn't work, there could be some sort of bios issue or something else to look at.

Good news yet annoying as well a clean reformat Worked now all my DirectX10/11 compatible games work. This is a very annoying bug with the OS/DirectX due to reformatting to get the DirectX11 to work again in any application from games etc.

Thank you to everyone for your replies and support with this DirectX bug it was much appreciated.

Another thing you should have tried was to download the Standalone version of DX11.
And tried the repair or reinstall option.
