Please try restarting your computer and then try again.

If that doesn't help, try updating your graphics drivers and installing this (DirectX 9.0c): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34429

Thanks for the suggestions. My graphics drivers are up to date.

I tried installing DirectX 9.0c. However i get this error:
'you must be running Windows 98, Windows millennium edition, windows 2000, windows xp or windows 2003 family to install directx 9.0'

I'm on windows 10.

So restarting the computer didn't work? It worked for many Windows 10 users that had a problem and I am also running Windows 10.

As for DirectX, try this instead: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35&nowin10
Or this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109

Also maybe try installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 x86 Redistributable. It can be found at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145 Choose the x86 version.

I hope this helps.

Your second link.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109

I installed that and it worked.

Hopefully it will help others who might have issues Smile Thanks for your reply.

Thank you. I just updated the demo installer to not skip asking to install DirectX 9.0c if DirectX 10 or 11 is installed. Hopefully that helps others.

Same here with the demo. I hope this doesn't happen on the full version.
