    First thing I would try is update the drivers for the intel HD chipset , just done a quick check and latest is 31/08/2010.

    Fixed it!

    While correcting another problem with Win 7, the following corrected the problem of Civ V not starting. Needless to say, the usual warnings associated with messing around with the registry apply:

    Solution:


    1. Open the Registry editor. To do so, Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit.exe in the Programs list.In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.



    2. Navigate to the following registry keys HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders



    3. The correct and default value for AppData should be %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming. To change the value, double click on Appdata, then change the string in the value data field.





    4. Close the Registry editor, reboot and try again



    5. If the problem persists, repeat the steps 2 through 4 with the following registry keys:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\





    A good clue that this will likely fix the problem is if you are getting error messages with Windows Update. (Control Panel > Windows Update). Civ V is now running like a charm Good luck.

    Thank you for this, this might be the missing piece of the puzzle for users whose civ5 folder isnt being created

    Nope

    Didn't work for me unfortunately....

    Click on civ 5, direct x launcher pops, pick 10/11 or 9 option doesn't matter. Machine thinks about it for about 3 seconds, and then nothing happens.

    Watching my task manager, the civ process starts, grabs anywhere from 7 to 67 megs of ram, then promptly disappears.

    And no, nothing showing up at all in my documents/my games folder for civ 5.

    Have re-installed from the disc, have re-installed via steam. Re-installed directx and c++ redistributable. Updated vid drivers.

    Hopefully you guys will figure it out soon.

    Hello there

    I have a similar problem which I suspect is due to not having a decent enough graphics card. I get the option to launch in DX10 / DX11, but when I click it it does nothing. Nada, zip, zero. I haven't got it installed to C:/ - long story but I only have a 30G C:/ and there's not much room there. Here are my DXDIAG whatsits, could someone please help?

    I'm going to mooch around on here and see if I can find a solution in the meantime.

    OK, so I've freed up some C:/ space and re-installed the game there and still can't play it with DX10 / 11. I can play DX9, but the graphics are all torn and horrible. This sucks, I've emailed 2K and they told me to email take2 support who have told me they will get back to me within 72 hours .

    This really sucks, all I want to do is play the game I've paid for. If my hardware can't do the DX10 / 11 stuff then the least I should be able to do is play it in DX9 without crappy torn up graphics?

    1 minute to install, that was quick hehe.

    Ok, first things first, can you go into My Documents, then into My Games, and make sure there is a Civ 5 Folder there please.

    Also, i know that ATI/AMD has stopped driver support for this card, but if you can find a more recent driver, please update it.

    Edit 2 - dont rely on support for this one, the card is officially unsupported, and thats likely the official responce youll get

    Hi - I wish it was 1 min, I moved these 2 posts from another thread as I realised this one was more appropriate for my problem.

    I can confirm that there is a Civ 5 folder in My Games. Would you believe that I reinstalled my OS over the weekend to try and resolve the issue?

    I would good to know the OS is clean and happy

    Was there a newer driver for that card?

    Watching my task manager, the civ process starts, grabs anywhere from 7 to 67 megs of ram, then promptly disappears.

    And no, nothing showing up at all in my documents/my games folder for civ 5.

    Have re-installed from the disc, have re-installed via steam. Re-installed directx and c++ redistributable. Updated vid drivers.

    Hopefully you guys will figure it out soon.
    I've seen this issue but only running on Windows XP with an Intel video card chipset. Intel video cards work a lot better in Vista/Win7.

    if you start a thread, instead of ressurecting an old one, we can help you, we will need dxdiag
