    Default DDO crashes when minimized

    I recently somehow misclicked on something and changed my resolution.

    Now, when I minimize DDO, DDO crashes. I've gone through several resolutions but they all crash.

    I've a GeForce GTX950 and updated my drivers with no luck.

    Screenshot isn't uploading so the 1st error is

    "Could not initialize Direct3D. Please ensure that DirectX 9.0c [Dec 2005] or higher is installed. [105]"

    2nd error is

    "The game encountered a fatal DirectX issue while attempting to start. Try a different screen resolution or bith depth. If that doesn't work, try new video drivers. [128]"

    Have tried 1080x768, 1024x768, 1152x864, and 1280x800.

    Mu full window res is 1920x1080.

    Download the file from the link above and run it, it will ask you where to extract the files to so make a folder on your desktop and extract to it. Then once it has finished run the file named setup.exe and follow the on screen instructions. This will fully reinstall the DirectX runtimes that DDO needs and should hopefully fix your issue.
