Also add what you already tried so far. tried updating graphics devices, making my nvidia geforece the primary device of choice, uninstalling everything, reinstalling, my game works and is playable but RedM seems not to be and is the only thing not working. All my other games run, just not this program for some reason. Tried running the program with the launcher open, restarting my computer after updates, all of it. Please help.

I’m having this same exact issue just curious on was you able to get it fixed and if so how ?? I’ve also tried everything you stated and nothing works I have the game on steam I can play the game fine but I get this issue when loading redm and done everything he stated above to fix and still won’t open. I’m on windows 10 and I have a 2060.

i had this error on red dead first and the fix there was to change it from vulcan launch to DX 12 which was easy enough following the steps in the red dead files and its the same error on redm but i cant figure out a way to get it to launch with DX 12

i’ve changed mine to DX12 and still getting the error changed it in game and in the settings file from a post I’ve read and nothing has fixed it yet.

I’m having the same issue I tried updating my drivers and switching from Vulkan to DX12 I didn’t run the rockstar launcher as administrator nothing works

Well I got it to work, I had to legit completely reset my pc and reinstall steam, discord, my games and red m and all of a sudden bam, it’s working. Something in there was conflicting with it and now it’s not.
