1. go to EPW/element/ folder and run dxwebsetup.exe file then check if it lets you start the game
2. if it doesn't, click on "Run" option in the start menu, type "dxdiag" and click OK. On the bottom there is field for notes that would let you see if there are any issues detected with your DirectX installation. Please check if any issues were detected. (click Next page button)
3. if nothing was found.. what is your graphic card driver model?

You should uninstall your graphic card drivers and then install the newest version from the ATI website.

you guys added an exception of the EpicPW folder to your antivirus / windows defender exception list?
if u didn't please do this steps:

delete the existing epic folder (NOT THE RAR YOU DOWNLAODED)
create a new folder with a new name (diferent fromt he folder name you just deleted)
move the rar file you downlaoded inside that new folder you created
go to your antivirus / windows defender and add the folder you just created to the exception list
confirm and apply the changes
after this you can extract the rar content into that folder
