All games crash on start - (Failed to create d3d device)

Post by Hreno »

Hello everyone

I have DK2 and latest Vireio. I have latest NVidia drivers updated using NVIDIA GeForce Experience.

All games I tried to run crash on start with an error "Failed to create d3d device". They work fine without Oculus Rift.

I have Oculus set as primary monitor and I first open Vireio as administrator and then open a game. I use Windows 8.1.

Any help appreciated.

The 0.6.x version of the Oculus runtime does not support DirectX 9. Try going back to 0.5.x.

We are actually working on a fix - a BIG fix. If we get it working, I think a lot of people are going to be very happy. ;)

Thank you for your patience.

Regards,
Neil
