Resident Evil 5 (DX9) will not run

So I bought the game yesterday and finally finished downloading it earlier today.

I launched it and clicked the dx9 option (my only choice, I'm on XP), it pops up a blank window then seems to go full screen... Then it just crashes with no error message.

I went into the game folder and tried running the dx9 exe from there, I get this error -
Quote:
InitRpl Failed

Errorcode:80070002
I've tried verifying the game cache and defragging the files, as well as restarting my PC.

Specs-

Windows XP pro
AMD Athlon 5200+ 2.7ghz dual core
ATI HD4870 1gb
4gb of ram

Drivers are up to date and I don't believe it's a windows live problem (could be wrong), I've managed to get BioShock 2 running fine with it.

try this, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

sounds like a missing dx file to me, also verify your game cache

You can't run the dx9 or dx10 exe from the game folder, hence the error code. Instead, you need to run the "launcher" or through steam.

If you have problems starting, try disabling the steam overlay. To do this, right click on the game in steam and select properties. Then deselect the option "enable steam community in-game".

This solved my own start-up problems in Win 7 64bit. This also works for other, older games, that have difficulty starting up.

If you disabled windows live ID service(the GFWL one) it MUST be re-enabled before you start the game else it won't load.

1gb of system ram but you have Win 7 64 bit? really? um you wont be running any modern games smoothly with 1gb of system ram. hopefully you mean the 4650 has 1gb of ram as no modern comp with that os only comes with 1gb of system ram.

and "duo Core"? if you are going to post your specs please do a better job as that means nothing.
