The Witcher Enhanced Edition -How to: Min system requirements not met (ErrorFix) + -dontForceMinReqs low texture lock FIX
By Kenny

Step 1:
Go to your :C Folder
(Local disk :C > Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > The Witcher Enhanced Edition)

Step 2:
Once you're in, right click the game application and send a shortcut to your Desktop(shortcut must be made this way)
eg. ('right-click' > Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)

Step 3:
Go to your Desktop and right-click on the shortcut you just made,
then go to Properties > Shortcut

Step 4:
Go to the Target and make sure your target says,
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Witcher Enhanced Edition\System\witcher.exe" -dontForceMinReqs
then go ahead and Apply and OK,

Step 5:
Open the game via the shortcut on your desktop and it should work:)


If you are using the FIX above ^^
you may notice that your texture slider will only set to low.
If this is the case and you want to play with a higher texture setting then follow these steps!

Step 1:
Go to your :C Folder
(Local disk :C > Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > The Witcher Enhanced Edition > Data > Override)
If you don't have an Override folder just make one,

Step 2: (Winrar is pref)
Download the fix (DOWNLOAD MANUAL):

Step 3:
Extract the zip file to the Override folder,

Step 4:

ps. The slider will remain the same and will not move from the left of the slider but the textures will all be set to high.
