Clear Sky Crashing in DX10 Mode

Hi all, I'm trying to replay CS on my new PC and it crashes constantly if I enable DX10. Here are some links to a couple of error logs.

I've tried reinstalling, updating video drivers, and updating directx. I notice it is causing an error in d3d11.dll which seems strange to me as CS doesn't support DX11. I also checked CoP and it crashes if I try DX10 mode as well; it works fine in 8,9, or 11 though. Any help would be appreciated.

Systems specs are:
Core-I7 3770
Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe
16GB Crucial DDR3-1600
Geforce GTX 670
Sound Blaster Z
Windows 7 Ult 64bit

DX10 in CS has never worked properly, and in my experience it's best to disable it.

It should work in CoP, though.

On my pc dx 10.1 is always on in CS and i never encountered issues.
Maybe it s the issue with fsgame.ltx ?

Also CoP dx 10 is much better than dx 11. Dx 11 textures are horrible as i have seen. Ground just looks like its set on low-medum.

On my older system I had an ATI card and could run in DX10 without issue. I'm not sure if its a driver conflict or my DX10 installation is bad. Or according to the log its trying to use DX11, not really sure on that.

Same happens to me. I haven't played Clear Sky for appr. 7 month, I did not change anything but now whenever I try to start the game it crashes with a black screen. This ONLY occurs when I set it to "Enhanced dynamic lighting of objects" (don't know exactly how these settings are correct in english, I play in german language) AND fullsceen mode. Fullscreen mode together with "Enhanced dynamic lighting" does not crash and windowed mode together with "Enhanced dynamic lighting of objects" does not crash.
This is very frustrating because I did use the exact unchanged settings that I used 7 month ago and I have no idea what causes this misbehaviour.

For me personally it worked much better before, but I still remember minor oddities, like rectangular meshes around some trees.

After I upgraded my video card and driver last year I can hardly use the options menu when DX10 is enabled.

Once these games get old, the newer drivers seem to lose support for them.

The only feature i like in CS when dx 10 is on are wet surfaces option. its just soo beautiful

Also some games "should" work faster with dx 10.

SOLVED

Update:
Uninstalled "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2670838)"
Now it runs with all parameters on highest level in fullscreen mode and DX10.1 support.
