Crashing on startup? Tried everything? THIS might help
ok, go to wherever your DP is installed, ie your steamapps/common/Deadly Premonition now find and double click on the 'redist' folder, scroll down to the bottom and double click 'PhysX_SystemSoftware' and run the REPAIR option. Now Try!

I tried everything on these forums to fix my startup crash problem, nothing worked untill i did this and fixed my problem,
note : You WILL have to run this repair again if installing new games that use PhysX

thanks to steam user 'Sapper Wang'!

just open up my computer and...
in my case, go to C drive, program files (x86), STEAM, SteamApps, common, deadly prem, redist, and then go to the bottom for PhysX_systemsoftware... run it then REPAIR. Worked like a champ for me and is all i tried to get game to work.

Thanks again to OP for great solution!!!

Dang this doesn't work for me :/. Just tried to play this game for the first time, vanilla, no DPFix. Crashing on startup and repairing PhysX goes thru, but it doesn't affect my crashing :(

edit: fixed my problem. Went to Nvidia's site and downloaded and installed the latest PhysX, game doesn't crash at startup anymore!

Thanks, finally got the game started. DPFix seems to crash it though. Will try again with lower settings. Thanks for this tip.
