    Default FotS will not launch/install [Solution - reinstall secondary installers]

    Hi all,

    After downloading FotS I click Play game (to install it as its the first time), something about Dx11 flashes very quickly (cant see what it says though) and then nothing happens.

    So, bacically the problem is that the game is downloaded but I am unable to install it.

    I do not have S2 since before. Napoleon runs fine though.

    What I have done so far is;
    -Updated video drivers
    -Uninstalled the game and downloaded again

    Help very, very appriciated!

    Rgds,
    Tansu

    Ps. I havent been active in the forum for a while but to my suprise I see that Sasu now is a moderator, good to see dude!

    Basically, post DxDiag as explained on the before attached websites
    Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

    Thanks guys, but I have already solved it after some help.

    What I did was to manually re-install all .exe files in the "redist" folder including the one in the Dx-folder.

    Anyway, thanks.
