NCsoft Launcher Error DirectX
 
So i copy the game from another computer to this laptop and i cant play because...

After i click the Play button a window pops saying that "Windows reports that your directX version is out of date. Please update DirectX to ensure that Aion runs properly" and it gives me an "update" option, so i click on it. After clicking the Update option it does a download of the new DirectX, after going to 100% i click on the "Install" button and another window pops saying:

"NCsoft Launcher Error
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The specified executable is not a valid Win32 application."

What should i do?

I copied the game from my old computer running windows xp to a new computer running windows 7 and it keeps saying "Windows reports that your directX version is out of date. Please update DirectX to ensure that Aion runs properly".

I tried downloading the launcher and reinstalling it but it still keeps asking the above question.

The computer is running directx 11 same as the old comp on which AION runs OK.

What can i do to get it to work on my new computer without reinstalling the game.

Initially, the launcher shouldn't detect aion until you point it to your aion.bin file, then repair, and you're good to go (that's what I did).

EDIT: After you point the launcher to your bin file, it'll ask for confirmation to overwrite it if necessary, just click yes and it'll check what files are already installed. After it it "installs," repair then play.

I don't typically recommend copying files from another computer. If the above does not work uninstall aion and the ncsoft launcher then install the ncsoft launcher and download and install aion through the launcher.
