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 have tried re-installing Direct X, I have tried updating my drivers, still no luck!

Re: Could not create the graphics device Directx not available

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?

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.

Re: Could not create the graphics device Directx not available

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