Hard crash on startup (W10 x64) - nothing seems to work
Hi, I'm desperate.

Trying to play the game but it hard crashes in the startup, effectively not launching.

Tried reinstalling, repairing, putting dinput8.dll in game files, made sure no "!" is in the game path, disabled background programs, Alt+Enter (nothing happens), tried ALL compatibility modes and ran as admin.

i also have no external devices connected, not even a mouse.

Nothing seems to work.

Please, please help me.

*My rig: Alienware 17R4, W10 x64, nVidia GT1060.

Please be more specific.

I have a Realtek audio driver (up to date) and a motherboard audio driver (Alienware 17R4).

I tried disabling the Realtek driver but the game still doesn't start.

How can I reinstall the motherboard integrated driver?
