Emulator Issues #7725
Dolphin crashes if DirectX isn't updated.
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Just reinstalled Windows 7 x64, opened dolphin and tried to run a game. Dolphin gave a critical error about DX failing to load. Dolphin crashes if I click 'Ok'.
What did you expect to happen instead?
Closing of the game screen and returning to the main menu.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
[Don't assume we have ever played the game and know any level names. Be as
specific as possible.]
1. Reinstall windows (or removing DX, is that even possible?)
2. Open dolphin (4.0-3518)
3. Click on a game to run it.
4. Press the 'Ok' button on the error message.
Dolphin 3.5 and 3.5-367 are old versions of Dolphin that have
known issues and bugs, so don't report issues about them and test the
latest Dolphin version first.
Which versions of Dolphin did you test on?
Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?
Dolphin 4.0.2 works, because it automatically installs some version of DX in the background. But 4.0-3518 only works after running the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer.
