Default Crashing on startup

Hey, so the other day i started learning how to use Serious Editor 4 but recently it has been crashing on startup with this error:

I've tried reinstalling the editor but it didn't make a difference. Any ideas?

Hmm, do you have DirectX properly installed?

I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone. Go to your Talos installation dir and run Redist\DirectX\DXSETUP.exe as Admin.

Hmm. What if you delete that dll then verify your local cache in Steam?

Uhh... the .dll doesn't even exist. Which i think may be the problem.

Set this in the launch parameters for the game:

+gfx_strAPI Direct3D9

As i said, I'm talking about the editor, not the game. And no, that doesn't work.

Did you try reinstalling? Not just the editor, but the entire game. With directx and everything.

Tried reinstalling the whole game but it didn't reinstall directx. So it still doesn't work.

Then you should reinstall directx manually.

Directx 11 i assume? I tried manually installing it before but nothing changed. I probably downloaded the wrong thing. Could you point me in the right direction?

Well, usually the games' steam folder should contain a "Redist" or "Common Redist" folder with a recommended directx setup.

But, the thing is... that my Talos doesn't have that Direct3D11.dll file either!

So this is what I'm recommending: Click here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/257510/discussions/

The other Croteam members visit there, just for Troubleshooting people who got problems. They are more experienced than me, so they can probably help you better.
