Windows 10 Fall Creator Update (ver. 1709) breaking games

Dear Microsoft,

I recently, upgraded my Windows 10 from version 1703 to 1709, and what I noticed, is lot of my existing games do not run any more on it.

I do have another system with Windows 10 with version 1703 and the games run absolutely fine. 

Both the versions have DirectX 12.

My Video card is GTX 970 and video drivers are updated. So not sure what the Fall Creator Update (ver. 1709) changed in my system.

Company of Heroes II launches with error : Failed to find supported hardware rendering device. Verify that DirectX is properly installed & that you have the latest drivers for your system.

Some of the makers of the games have not updated them as yet.  Keep after them.

That"s the best answer what I expected ....Thank you for that....

BTW COH II is a old game that used to work on version 1703 and not working on 1709

It is a poor thing to say that such a great game needs to be updated...

I have coh series on steam and will test when I get on that system.

There have been some reported issues on the nvidia forums with the latest  388.13 driver and 1709.

I have an issue where the nvidia control panel does not detect any new programs recently ran even after hours of play;

but gforce experiences shows everything.

The win10 xbox app also is out of whack with what was played last, sometimes off by hours or even days or not showing at all.

As far as developers updating their titles, think this is not a valid statement as    compatiblity mode and legacy options should fix this.

MS is not doing as well in the game market on pc as steam or even origin.

Game consoles makers  are fighting it out as more are opting into the pc again as more beefier hardware and lower costs

with better performance.

Hi,

A corrupted data may cause your game not to work properly. Here are two steps on how to isolate system issues: 

Method 1: Perform a clean boot, this helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows 10. Here is the link on how to perform a clean boot.     
 

Method 2: Here is a link on how to download Apps Troubleshooter.  
 

 

Let us know how it turns out.

In steam go to detailed view, right click over the game, select properties, select local files, verify integrity of game files ( this may download some missing files).
