You can find this information by clicking Help / System Information in your Steam client.

- Make sure your Graphics Card Drivers are updated

If your computer does not fulfill these requirements and the game does not run even though you updated your graphics card driver and downloaded the most recent version of DirectX (Windows only):
Please get a refund on Steam. You can do this until two weeks after buying the game:

If your computer fulfills all the above requirements, your graphics card driver is up to date, the most recent version of DirectX is installed (Windows only) and the game still does not run:
Please send us an email which includes your system specification. (You can find it by clicking Help / System Information in your Steam client.)

I know this is an old post, but anyone in 2019? My game doesn't even get to the main menu before crashing, and I checked all of this! Help!

Hello. Here is how to get to the folder of your crash report when the screen crashes to a blank screen and there is an error report notification on another tab:-

So you have a blank screen. You tab out. There are two tabs for Niche. One of them is an error report. You can tell when you hover over, but if you click the error tab, it just goes back to the blank screen and you cannot find the error report.

Click the error tab. It stays on the blank Niche window. Ignore that. Hover over the error tab so that windows shows it to you, just like you did to read that there was an error folder in the first place. Above the task bar, Windows will show you two thumbnails of each Niche tab. Hover over the error report thumbnail. It appears. Don't click it. Just press space or enter while the error report is visible in the middle of the screen, and that will press the "yes" button to bring you to the hidden folder containing the crash report.

If you didn't understand, reply to this comment and see if you can get me to walk you through it.

I've nothing to do with Niche. I'm just looking to report a crash myself. So I don't know if anybody is going to answer. I guess not. But now you know how to get to the crash the report anyway.
