Edit1: going to uninstall the game and start anew...
installed the DirectX redist. 2010 (couldn't find a 2011 version... but I'm just a noob
manually patched to v. 1.03 (win xp (sp2) compat. as admin.)
Edit3: aplied steps 8, 10 and 12, reinstalled nvidia drivers (v. 286.52) and PhysX (v. 9.11.1107); the game scan still tells me my drivers are out of date
Edit4: made changes in Graphic Options and Nvidia Control Panel as in post 31
downloaded securom's exe file and it appears to be not only US but English-international, just as the patch 1.03 - 'cause it really helped and the GAME IS RUNNING NOW!!! *squeeeee*
(I don't need a desktop icon/shortcut, I'm using the Start menu :-))
THANK YOU Q AND THANK YOU ALL!!!
