Default Help!! What have I missed?? No shortcuts no DX10,???

I just installed crysis and there was no program group created, no shortcuts anything. Am I missing something? I can launch the program from the directory I installed it in but something doesn't seem right. Any ideas?

I'm guessing its Vista so you need to check the Game Explorer for the Crysis shortcut. A right click on it will also let you choose if you want to use the DX9 renderer.

Found it!
It's been 6 months since I bothered with Vista...what with the multitude of drivers before....I got fed up. Just back.
Seems much better. Only one bug so far...can't save the overclock in ntune. Somethings never change.

I found Rivatuner to be the best working graphicscard OC tool in vista
To allow for the program to run automatically on startup, you'll need to disable UAC (User Account Control - a function that basically means you don't have full admin rights despite being the user admin) under your user in the control panel
