How can I fix this problem?

  • This doesn't happen to me. Do you have any advanced settings in your Civ 5 desktop shortcut? – TZHX Feb 8 '12 at 8:55
  • My desktop short cut was generated from the dialogue where you select DX9/DX11. I had right clicked on DX11 to create a DX11 icon. – Valamas Feb 8 '12 at 9:23
  • Doesn't happen to me either, and no update. I'm using windows XP, Ati graphics cards, dx9 only I guess.. – I.G. Pascual Feb 8 '12 at 12:00

The way i fix the problem was to open steam via the system tray icon.

Find Civ 5 and click the Play button. I noticed it performed another update and executed Civ successfully.

Civ icon also executes Civ successfully.
