Default Cannot run Angel of Darkness (Steam) SOLVED

Recently purchased from Steam, and only just installed this morning because I have been playing Anniversary. ^_^

It comes up with the launcher (with a picture of Lara) and four buttons, each with a description of what happens when I click them, Run being the one I am primarily concerned with:

Run Game
This appears whenever I click Run:

"Build Sep 17 2003 15:53:15

The Following Error has occured

Generic Game Error

ASSERTION: 'SUCCEEDED(hr)' at C:\projects\tomb raider\Game\shell\system\PC\sys_d3d_vmr9.cpp(1569) "

Settings
Opens launch settings for graphics, keyboard, sound etc.

Read Me
"Windows cannot find 'readme.rtf'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Exit
Closes launcher

HALP PLS!

Ah it's the VMR9 problem, it's a classic.

Try this:

In Settings, click the next tab over from General (the second tab from the left, it should be your video card), and check the box titled VMR9 in the Options box on the right right side.

That should fix it.
