hmm you maybe need to install the directx files from the game disc.before i found this solution i alredy install redist from game disc and also uninstall/reinstall my gpu drivers but i think for me the problem only need to wait 15min..you should try reinstall the directx/redist files
SyN Sep 10, 2012 @ 4:29am 
yeah the problem cuz your D3dcompiler files are missing..need to install the latest microsoft directx..that should fix the problem

So annoying - what is Steam doing these days????
I bought Sleeping Dogs yesterday (PC) - and my machine is top of the line XPS with GeForce GTX 260.
I have followed every instruction (for hours) on how to start the game, and nothing so far works. It stoppes at a white loading screen saying "HPShip.exe has stopped working".
I wrote to Steam that I rather have my money back so I can go to Game Stop or similar to buy the game - and play. Cos I also bought Max Payne 3 in June - and can not play still - same for many many people.

From now on I will start buying my games at the store in town.

XPS 14 15 or the 17?
allso did you mean the GeForce GT 630M or 640M?
Anyways... the HPShip.exe is the directX this is the problem, just install a new DirectX and it must be verified.
Minimum: OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
Processor: Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Althon X2 2.7 GHz
RAM: 2GB
Graphic card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card, ATI Radeon 3870 or higher, Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or higher.
It has nothing to do with steam.

Well I have a XPS 17 Machine with a Nvidia GT 555m, and I am stuck in the loading screen as well.....
Narion Sep 22, 2012 @ 3:04am 
Well the first link was kind of a dead end, but found a directx webinstaller and I am trying to install that now. The second link was totally useless....what the heck do i do with a presentation of Microsoft for "Gamefest 2010"??
Insane Sep 22, 2012 @ 3:39am 
yeah wrong link mate, was bizzy helping 4 other people.. lol http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 my problem, it was the dll in the directx.. so i installed the http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?d3dcompiler_43 it sorted it out. anyways i was surprized to see how many dll had probs.maybe this will help when all, fail.
