Have you ever been able to play it and now can't, or never?

Please post a dxdiag.txt (you can delete everything after the end of the "Sound devices" section for brevity) and your Documents/EU4/settings.txt. From your Documents/EU4/logs/ directory post system.log . Open setup.log in notepad and search for 'checksum', post that line only here too please.

I have never played it before. I have played crusader kings 2 tho. I can't even get that to work either. It stopped working since I installed a new OS and HDD.
Supplican Jun 29, 2014 @ 5:07am 
Please try installing:

First: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8328

Then: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35
(If that doesn't do anything then http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 )

Then: visit the Windows Update site and allow it to apply all .NET updates/patches it wants to, for all .NET versions.

Also your video driver is very old indeed. try this one
http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/75991
rifter024 Jun 29, 2014 @ 9:08am 
Alright, I just did all of that. Still the same problem.
Cole Jun 29, 2014 @ 12:20pm 
Yeah having the same issue and I did everything you told me aswell
Supplican Jun 29, 2014 @ 6:03pm 
I'm surprised, that should do it. What exacty happens with each of those update steps I gave? Did any of them say they did anything? Does the video driver now show as current in dxdiag?

Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\crusader kings ii\DX\ and run dxsetup.exe
Cole Jun 29, 2014 @ 8:42pm 
they are were installed with no problem other then the second download given the fact that I have it already. My drivers should be fine personally. I should reinstall CK2? instead of Europa for this bit?
Supplican Jun 29, 2014 @ 8:48pm 
No. That DXSETUP only seems to exist under CK2, not EU4. But it installs DirectX 9.0c suitable for both game.
Cole Jun 29, 2014 @ 8:50pm 
Alright I suppose I'll download CK 2 then reinstall EU4 two games i've hardly had the chance to play xD hope this works!
Cole Jun 30, 2014 @ 2:11am 
EU4 still is not working and it's the only game that has ever had this issue even the other paradox games run fine.
rifter024 Jun 30, 2014 @ 2:44am 
Well, when I do those windows updates, afterwards it says something like, Are you sure this program was installed correctly.. so
Supplican Jul 1, 2014 @ 8:22pm 
Does the video driver now show as current in dxdiag?

Please post your Documents/EU4/settings.txt. From your Documents/EU4/logs/ directory, post system.log . Open setup.log in notepad and search for 'checksum', post that line only here too please.

Hello!

I too had this problem. I solved it today.

1) I uninstalled all of .Net Framwork 4.5.1
2) Reinstalled .Net Framwork 4.5.1
3) From a different installation of Windows I copied the following files from sysWOW64:

xinput1_1.dll
xinput1_2.dll
xinput1_3.dll

(These are XBox Controller dlls. May need to alter permissions to allow copy.)

Doing this made it work!!

GL!
