I'm afraid you won't be able to play as your system does not meet minimum system requirements. Both CPU and video card are too weak.

Your CPU is weaker than minimum required:

Although I'm not sure its the one causing problems. Check microsoft page for latest directX version, and install latest drivers from Nvidia.

DirectX error is typically a video-related error, sometimes its sound-related. Try to lower video and sound acceleration in directX settings. Also go to BIOS and load defaults, this sometimes helps.

If you're running on a laptop, make sure you have latest driver for Nvidia. And I'm not sure 525M would qualify, minimum system requirements state 450 desktop version:

Make sure you have latest DirectX version, latest drivers and OS updates. This is the most frequent fix.
