Did you try to disable/uninstall your Anti-virus?

Did you start Rockstar Games Launcher not as admin?

Also add what you already tried so far.

Literally any suggestions would be appreciated. I can’t figure out what’s wrong with this thing.

I’m now getting ERR_GFX_INIT. I’ve tried all the solutions I’ve found on the forums and reddit such as deleting SGA files. I can start RDO itself just fine but I can’t get RedM to work even after reinstalling it, and my graphics drivers. Should I just try reinstalling RDO?

Did you ever find a solution? I am now running into the exact same problem.

Okay, I sorted it out. For whatever reason, DX12 conflicts with the Nvidia driver for this GPU, forcing it to load (or try to load) RedM with the integrated GPU and not the dedicated GPU. Even using the Windows Graphic settings and/or Nvidia control panel to force it otherwise is ineffective. You’ll have to run the game on Vulcan. If you disable your integrated GPU (via Device Manager) you should be able to atleast nurse your way into the game to change your settings to Vulcan, and then reload with both GPUs enabled.
