Directx error code? Answered

I recently downloaded the Just Cause 2 demo off of Steam. When I try to run it I get this message:

Fatal Directx Error!
Code: 15
Result: 0x80070057: E_INVALIDARG

I have Directx 11. How do I fix this?

I had the same DX error code with you, actually the best way to fix that is to reinstall your system. But still you can try to use some DX tools like Reinstall DirectX EZ. I hate DirectX errors, I don't know why they didn't get all the errors fixed before release.

Copy the error code, paste it into e.g. Google, look at the answers people have given to people who've already asked the question:
 0x80070057: E_INVALIDARG


Contact the Steam folks and ask them. I'm sure you're not the only one to have run into this, whatever it is.
