2 weeks ago i put my computer into repair and the tech did a reboot of the OS. When i re installed GM 1.4 and try to compile a room, i get the message: "Failed to create Direct3D 9ex device"

This did not happen before and i dont i have a clue about how to fix it. Any solutions? Thanks in advance!

See if you can find where it extracted to and run setup from there. I vaguely remember something about the installer silently exiting for me also.

DirectX folder in C: is empty so idk where it went

I checked upon dxdiag in run that my system use directx11

But for some reason, the characteristics are all unavalible. I think that may be the problem but i swear, i dont find any solution about it

Ok i found a solution to a problem with Direct3D..... In games: if you get errors like unable to create direct3D in games and emulator [https ://m .youtube .com/watch?v=X3DlPcX7Gz8] this spanish video get you a software to overcome this

But i tried in GM, and even if i get rid from the error, i still unable to compile for some reason!

This did not happen before...

Edit: apparently just fix the Project 64 issue. Epsx do not run for this exact problem, just like GM 1.4 does.

I re installed Game Maker again and still, the error still not letting me compile by any means

Considering that before formatting and re installing my OS this was not an issue, i refuse to believe that there is no solution for this

That "Direct3D acceleration: Not available" from dxdiag is your problem. Reinstall the drivers for your graphics card, the repairs guy forgot to do it after reinstalling your system. GM games will not work until that line says "Available" again.
