Hi,
I purchase project cars and attached to steam, but I cant launch it. There is a possibility of choosing without VR, with HTC vive or Oculus, I choose without VR and than it starts to processing and nothing happens. I tried to verify integrity in steam, I tried to reinstall Steam and the game, run it without Antivirus or Firewall on, also I google some trick with changing name of projectcars.exe file, also didnt work, when I directly run the game from game folder, there is a error window (window/system32/d3dx11_43.dll error). I googled some possible solution concerning replace several files in system32, which I really prefer not to do. I there any other solution?
I really dont know what to do else.
I have Win 10 (64bit), nvidia Geforce 1070 (drivers updated), 16gb ram, Intel core i5 6600K
As I have only one post, I cant add screenshot.
Thanks a lot.

It's definitely a DirectX installation problem. From the few things I read about it, it's about compatibility of DX12 with older applications, and it seems that installing DX through the websetup application should fix this: http://www.techteria.com/guides/how-to-fix-d3dx9_43-dll-missing-error-in-windows-10/973

I tried to download this file, but at the end it says "there is a newer or this version of Directx" (something like this I am translating this form czech). After restart computer the game still wont launch and using comman dxdiag, I see still Directx 12 on my computer.

AFAIK you can have several DirectX versions installed. Couldn't you force the installation of the older DirectX?

If you can't then you may want to download the missing files and install them manually.

OK I couldnt install any other verison of Directx, bcs there is always info tab saying I have already the newest version, but I tried to download missing/corrupted? files and put them in C:/windows/syswow64 (I have 64bit Windows), Now when I try to launch it throw .exe file there is an error 0xc000007b.

Please post the complete error message, plus please attach the latest zipped dbgSession folder from My Documents/Project CARS.

OK, I deleted d3dx9(and 11)_43.dll files in syswow64 directory and reinstall direct with your link, than restart PC. When I click on projectcars.exe, it redirect me to steam, starting launching the game, but nothing happens. When I click on projectcars64.exe, there is an error "c:\windows\system32\d3dx11_43.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try to reinstall the program again. Error: 0xc000012f". I tried also rename projectcars.exe -> projectcars64.exe, still not working.

EDIT:
OK I finally make this think work :), but I really not sure how I did it. I delete bot those files in syswow64 but also in system32, than reinstall Directx and its working, lets see how long it lasts :D
Anyway thanks you all.
