Fix for "FATAL ERROR Cannot initialize renderer".
After searching on the internet for about 10 minutes for this error it seemed like a lot of other people have this and there's no real solution to it.

I managed to fix it for me though.

I've tried many things, but nothing worked. Will this work for me?
Here's my guess.
  • Go to C:\Users\[user]\Documents\DyingLight\out\logs
  • Check the latest log

If you see this on the 2nd last line then it might work for you:

ERRR: [ERRR] > Cannot load 'rd3d11_x64_rwdi.dll'

This issue is caused by DirectX. You need to reïnstall DirectX.

Actual Fix

  • Press the Win key+R to get the Run Box
  • Type Regedit and press enter
  • Find the following Registery key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectX
  • Look for "Version" It probably has the value
  • Double click on "Version" and change the number from to and press OK
  • Close Regedit
  • Download DirectX web-installer from the MS website and search for "directx end-user runtime web installer".
  • Install DirectX normally
  • Restart PC
  • Pwn some zombie butt.

I really hope this helps for some of you too!

I had the same error, but fixed it in a different way.

-First updated to Actual Version of DL,

-installed all of the DirectX and vcredist packages Manually (Repair function,starting with the oldest).

-Then I installed that Support patch ( https://steamcommunity.com/app/239140/discussions/0/604941528483950342/ ). Do NOT overwrite any files!

Well, thats it. After that, I was able to play and kick some Zombies asses. :D

I hope it helps you, too!

If there are some mistakes in my writing, please don't blame me, I'm from germany. ;)
