DiRT Rally won't boot up


Recommended Posts

The issue:
When I boot up DiRT Rally, the game asks if it can run as an admin, and I allow it. Then I see the DiRT Rally logo (I believe it's called a ''splash''?) and it tells me the game stopped working.
System Specs: 
Windows 7 SP1 64-bit
CPU: AMD Vishera FX-8350, Eight-Core,
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
RAM:  Crucial Ballistix Sport 12GB DDR3-1600,
Video card: Nvidia GTX 750 Ti 2GB, 

DX Diag: http://www.mediafire.com/download/zb49cwq0cexnqr5/DxDiag.txt (That one is a bit older, updated the drivers since, but hardwarewise it hasn't changed)

In order to attempt to fix it, I've set the compability mode to Vista and let in run as Admin by default, that didn't work. After setting that back to the original setting, I've deleted the game, rebooted, downloaded it again (Big download! :D ) and verified the game cache through Steam.
The things in the _CommonRedist folder are installed, drivers have been updated. 

I found after each unsuccesful boot a new file created, each time with slightly different names:
drt.exe.2196.STEAMSTART http://www.mediafire.com/download/w63aa22artgrp7a/drt.exe.2196.STEAMSTART
drt.exe.2704.STEAMSTART http://www.mediafire.com/download/839ltqu1h7ycq5m/drt.exe.2704.STEAMSTART
I don't know if they matter, but I've uploaded them and added their Mediafile links.

Steps to reproduce
Boot up DiRT Rally.
