do a search for "physx" in your control panel-->uninstall/repair area, if you cannot find it in the list. when it appears, r+click on it and repair will be an option. Still not sure it fixes the problem but that part worked.

the thread should be closed then. When I reply to a question it is opften times meant to also generate more discussion on the topic.

 

the set up for old threads is poorly handled. not my behavior.

First time install of Mass Effect 3 on Windows 10 64-bit. 

Nvidia Legacy driver installed.

Latest Nvidia Driver installed.

 

This *** still happens. Incredible.

 

"Repair" idea does NOT work (anymore). Uninstalling PhysX to install older Nvidia driver versions for "a game" is out of the question.

UPDATING your code, would be the appropriate solution, since you are still selling this game and I just bought it.

 

And all these closed forum threads telling people "issue is 'solved'" are ... a nice marketing gag, but false.

 

Fix your game.

It's not a Program code issue but an installation problem on specific systems.

 

Repair the PhysX software in "Programs and features" > reboot > test

 

If that don't helps, go to your "<drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\__Installer\physx\redist" folder and run the "PhysX-9.11.1107-SystemSoftware.msi" > reboot > test

 

If that still don't works, download the NVIDIA PhysX software stand-alone from here > run the installer as Admin  > reboot > test

I tried several things.

-Reinstalling drivers

-Repairing Physx

-Reinstalling Physx seperately

-Reinstalling and repairing game

Nothing seems to help.
