Steam Civ4 won't load

eh…just downloaded it, and the launch window opens and then closes without any other info. Tried deleting clientregistry.blob to no effect. Anyone have any ideas?

bah. not real obvious or mentioned anywhere but installing june 2007 redist of dx 9.0c worked.

You’re luckier than I am.

I’m still waiting for some word on why the video of Vigil, downloaded from Steam, won’t initialize. It’s only been three weeks…

And, yes, I did reinstall DirectX 9.0c.
