Fix for: LA Noire: The Launcher cannot query DirectX. Please update DirectX by installing the latest redistribution.

By Jesse | November 26, 2011

Not company related but a solution I thought I would post since it is not well documented.  At a family gathering we purchased the game LA Noire by Rockstar Games on Steam.  After it installed it would not run.  The error below appeared:

“The Launcher cannot query DirectX. Please update DirectX by installing the latest redistribution.”

We also noticed there were errors in event viewer.

Also if you ran the launcher it would disappear and not launch.

 

The fix was to exit steam and re-run steam as administrator (right click, “run as administrator”).  After doing this, LA Noire ran with no problems.
