OKay well i've installed the game properly, i have steam and everything is set correctly to my understanding. When I press play civ 5 from the steam menu it brings up a black window saying Sid meiers civilization V (DX9). Then it doesn't play it asks to send an error report. Also their is another problem that i just discovered. I clicked play again and a window came up saying "CivilizationV.exe-application error. In this window it says "The instruction at "0x7c92ac93" referenced memory at "0xf186574e". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program.
I would appreciate any assistance so that i can finally play this game i payed for. Thankyou.
