    Fatal DirectX Error Code: 3 in Windows 8 while launching game

    I upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 8 recently. All games run flawlessly except Just Cause 2. I have all the latest video drivers and DirectX drivers installed. When I run the game, the “Fatal DirectX error!
    Code: 3
    Result: 0x887A0002: DXGI_ERROR_NOT_FOUND” error message appears and the game won’t open. The game is said to work on Windows 8 flawlessly. How can I fix this?

    The DitectX that is installed in your system may be of the latest version, but it is corrupt.

    The corruption might have happend due to abnormal activity or the game may have responsibilityfor the situation.
    You need to clean install DirectX latest version again.

    First, uninstall the existing DirectX from your system.

    Download the latest from Microsoft official website and install that in your system and the game should run seamlessly, incase the same scenerio arises again, 'consider uninstalling and reinstalling the game itself.
