    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\d3dx9_43.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again ising the original installation media or contact your system administrator or software vendor for support. Error status 0xc000012f.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\d3dx11_43.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again ising the original installation media or contact your system administrator or software vendor for support. Error status 0xc000012f.

    i bought it on Steam and thats where im trying to open it.

    i have reinstallad the game from steam. and reinstalled the c++ and the directx using the redists supplied AND ones i sourced from windows. tried reinstalling the game too... no luck there.

    Have you tried this?

    Hi there,

    This is not a specific ANNO 2070 problem, but a problem of Steam.

    Have you tried any of the below solutions?

    1. deleting d3d8.dll and d3d9.dll from the game directory, if they exist or

    2. watch this video of how to replace the dll's: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH7keDkAfqM

    3. Also a possible solution: https://www.windowsphoneinfo.com/thr...indows.112894/

    Hope it helps.

    Chears!
