I have the same problem. Re-installed the game and origin, but no success. I hate this. Paid 55 euros for it and it doesn't work. It's not my pc's problem. I have a i7 and HD5850. I hope someone finds a solution for this...

I have the same problem. I keep getting the error message 1002 when I try to run the game. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate via Mac bootcamp.

DX9 installers:

DX11 is suppose to revert and act as older versions... but I've found you most of the time need to have DX9 files installed.

As far as I know you are not reinstalling DX11 but here's a link.

I really need a fix for this. I've played the game on this computer recently and this problem just started overnight. It makes no **bleep** sense. Why is it that this game simply will not work one way or another?

Re: Could not create the graphics device Directx not available

★ Guide

Uninstall the game

 

Install directx drivers from scratch.

 

Update graphic drivers to newest (even if you've already repeat by doing a clean install)

 

Run DXDIAG.EXE and go to the tab Display, check if  DirectX-Functions are all enabled.

 

Restart the PC

 

Install the game

 

See if that works.

Could you explain how to install the Direct X drivers from scratch? Do I need to remove the current drivers first and reinstall?
