You have Windows 64bit but are using 32 bit? Try the 64 bit of the latest build:

he is alrady using a 64 bit OS. Maybe the problem is with windows vista, couse it hasn't dx11. Only windows 7 have it. (btw, sorry for my poor english)

windows vista has dx11 too.

#6 Updated by LexLight5 about 10 years ago

No, Kevin, Windows Vista has DX10, not DX11.

#7 Updated by NeoBrainX about 10 years ago

Do you compile builds yourself or using precompiled ones?

btw, if he didn't have DX11 installed he couldn't even select the plugin. AFAIK Windows Vista received DX11 support through a Windows Update.

Must be vista then. I tried the plugin on my buds laptop running windows 7 and it worked perfectly. I will be on a look for an update. thanks anyway

  • Category set to gfx
  • Issue type set to Bug

Nah, I might know how to fix it, I'd just need to check whether you gfx card supports B8G8R8A8 textures :/
Vista is totally fine, especially since you already managed to run the plugin up to that point...

#10 Updated by MKmaster about 10 years ago

For all those shouting "Vista! Vista!", let me discourage you.
I own an 8600GT on a Windows 7 Ultimate edition and am encountering the same errors.
So it most likely is as NeoBrainX just stated in the comment above this one.

This still occurs on my Windows 8x64 nvidia 660m intel 3630QM. Same issue as 5965. All versions through the current 3.5-1406.
