My profile has my system specs. But the important parts are: Windows 7, GTX 670 graphics card.
reverify the game download via steam
update drivers
update direct x

I will give it a try and report the results!

I did everything you said. Unfortunately, in trying to reinstall Direct X, it runs into an error - subsequently, anything that uses Direct X no longer runs. So, there's that.

It says:
An internal sytem error occurred.
Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your Windows folder to determine problem.

So now I need a way to completely uninstall Direct X and all it's broken bits, so I can reinstall it without error... Or to write over the old (current) version. Because reading those logs is like reading a foreign language to me.

Oh, this may be interesting for some:

If you try to play a game that requires DirectX, and it's not installed (or not installed properly), Steam will attempt to direct you to the Microsoft DirectX download site, but the link provided will immediate send you here instead:

Which is wrong.

Okay, so I got DirectX reinstalled,and still, all I get is a white screen. Stinko. But everything else works again, so it's not all stinko.

Other ideas?
post at the atag forum....

Skiper you do realize you didnt gave any hints at all of your system specs? Does it happens to other games too? Do you have a slow pc? How much ram do you have? Do you have just Steam version installed? Have you made any changes to the game?

Saying i have a "white screen" gives zero leads to any kind of problem.
lolsav he did post in his 2nd post :)

You know, I never figured out what the white screen is. But you can, by clever use of [ALT] + [Right Mouse Click] poof it out of existance.

I don't know why it appears, or what it's supposed to say - but at least now I can get past it.

And now IL-2 works. (I'm still gonna complain out it,just not as enthusiastically, since I have a plane to fly.)
are trying to run the vanilla version or the modded version?

The one that come directly from STEAM, as it comes from STEAM. No mods.
