HOI 3 wont launch

Hey folks.

After I reinstalled Steam and therefor also HOI 3, I cant launch it.

I am using Windows 7, 64 bit, which should support HOI 3.

So what can the problem be?

Best Regards
Frederik

Install latest DX update if its showing DX related .dll as missing.
if it doesnt help post in official HoI3 forum and provide more info about errors/crashes.

Question

See thats the problem. No error og crashes pop up.

I have HOI3 on my steam list. And it just wont start. You can press play as many times as you feel like and it just wont react.

I have deleted, and installede several times, and same thing over and over again. I have tried downloading the newest patch and still nothing.

And the funny thing is, that all this started after i reinstalled Steam.

Don't know if this is related, but last night HoI3 crashed when I tried to load my most recent few saves. It was working fine the day before, other than the normal crashes every 30 minutes or so.
I tried verifying the game files, and it said something like 1100 files were invalid and being replaced.
Now when I try to start HoI3, it says the game is currently unavailable, please try again later.

Just verified the game files again, this time 1300 files invalid and replaced, and now the game starts, but its in some very low resolution, and just a black screen with the stopwatch. Have to exit with the task manager.

Also on win 7 x64, but no changes to any drivers or anything from when it was working fine.

Delete entire HoI3 folder, restart PC, install HoI3 again and install latest DirectX update. Also you can try to start it directly via .exe file.
