    Deus Ex Human Revolution DC won't launch in steam

    Hey all,

    I thought I'd put this out there in case any of the hardcore gamers that know their stuff have the solution or even reason.

    So as the title suggests I'm unable to play Deus Ex HRDC as it won't launch from steam or even the exe file. Been trying to get this to work since my new rig has been up & running. Deus Ex Mankind divided works no problem as do all my other games currently installed in steam.

    Methods I've already tried are :

    1) Turn it off & on again
    2) Verify integrity of game cache
    3) Uninstall/reinstall game
    4) Turn off firewall/anti virus/malware fighter/ also uninstalled
    5) Used system configuration to adjust selective startup & services
    6) Attempted a force start in DX9
    7) Check windows update
    8) Installed newest AMD driver for video card
    9) Created new windows user account with admin rights
    10) Made sure steam is up to date
    11) Contacted Square Enix support
    13) Run out of idea's

    I don't have any troubleshooting ideas but if you cannot get it to work do not forget that Steam will let you return a game if it will not run on your system. So at least you won't be stuck paying for a game you can't play.

    Yes, I remember steams refund policy. I'm not really bothered about a few quid. I just really want to be able to play this game again. It's my favourite single player game. The game use to work for me in the past. I can't work out at what point & the reason why it's decided to act like a toasted potato.

    Could it be a windows 10 update. Could it be due to my new build/pc system. Could any asus software affect it.
    Oher than all the software available by asus for download, all my installed programs & software are the same I had on my previous pc. My previous pc had windows 10 on also. Deus Ex at some point worked on it however long ago I played it.
