Win 7 64 compatibility - game won't start

So, I played through about half of Numen on my old Windows XP machine, was enjoying the game. Game ran fine.

Yesterday, I got a new rig sporting Windows 7 64-bit, with a Geforce 560, i7, the works. Was excited to finish up the game (I'm assuming that copying my old save data over won't be a problem). In any case, I did a fresh install from Steam, hit "play", and the game won't launch. No errors or anything, it's just that nothing happens (I think I see the generic "launching game" Steam window for a second, but it disappears pretty fast so not sure).

I've seen some similar threads on here, but apparently they were all due to outdated directx (obviously not a problem, since I'm running directx 11). Someone else suggested editing a registry key, but upon running regedit, I don't find any registry entries for the game to edit. (My target rez is 1920x1080, which I ran just fine on this same monitor on my old rig).

Any suggestions? I've already verified cache, re-downloaded, etc. Would love to finish this game.

edit - Tried running the game .exe directly, and got a message about a missing directx9 file. Any tips on how to supply the missing files without screwing up my Directx 11 installation?

edit - problem solved by installing the directx redistributable from June 2010.

I'm glad to hear you solved the problem, brinf1. To install the June 2010 DirectX drivers would have been my first tip for you.
