For anyone with *DOW 2 crash on start* Windows 10 (FIX HERE)
I encountered this problem today,press play, steam says starting game, black screen, bugsplat report. I tried integrity and even reinstalling from a clean boot. Still hung on startup of Dow 2.

Assuming it needed old files as it is an old game I checked the Dirext x version and tried to get a current version from Microsoft. No dodgey 3rd party files for us, guys!

I tried using the distributables in the steamfolder but that did not resolve the issue.

I then went for a fresh copy from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=8109

Installing this now lets all of my DOW 2 games work again.

Hope this helps you.
