Game will not launch: A fatal DirectX error has occurred.(30000000) (2024)

Hi! I am having the worst time trying to get Dawntrail to run. The game was working fine (admittedly with intermittent crashes here and there) until the update this morning. I am consistently getting a DirectX error message when I try to open the game.

Also -- I have the Steam version.

I have updated my graphics drivers, Windows Update, and tried several other troubleshooting steps that I found on other DirectX error threads. Nothing has worked for me so far.

I checked Can I Run It to see if my minimum specs were at least within range, and it seems they are.

Here is my System Information from the launcher:
