    Failed to initialize direct3D error while installing game in Windows 7

    I recently attempted to install the new Tomb Raider game in my computer running in Windows 7 Pro. My system specs are 4 GB RAM, 2.8 GHz Quad Core processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT. When I opened the game after installation, the launcher menu appeared. When I clicked Play in the menu, this error re-appeared. How can I fix this error?

    In the Launcher menu, first go to Options. Now disable high graphics options like 'Exclusive Fullscreen'. Now go to 'Advanced' tab and disable tessellation. Now exit the launcher and access the internet. Look for the latest DirectX runtime components, download and install them. Now install the latest graphics drivers. After making sure that the latest updates are installed, try launching the launcher. Double-check the options to see if the settings are disabled (mentioned above). Now play the game.
