After updating did you reboot?

I had an issue with the stupid Nvidia Physx, wouldn't take until a reboot, after that game came up fine.

X3Daudio is the audio engine used in directX these days... if reinstalling directX didnt fix it, it means one of two things.

1. Your directX is totally and utterly boned.

2. the game thinks you have no audio.

Beyond that i cant think of any other reasons to get this problem.

IIRC, that uses realtek HD audio. make sure to get the latest drivers from the realtek site.

Hmmm damn bro, this must be annoying, well from the error message it obviously has to be Audio related, I will look around other sites and see if I find anything:toast:

Here's how to fix the X3DAudio1_7.dll error in metro 2033:

1.Go to your game installation folder called "Install"
2.Look up for DirectX or something called DXSETUP.exe
3.Just double click on it and run that file to update your DirectX version.
4.Once you update is finish just double click on the game and start playing
Try it....even if you have updated DX already.
