........Crash upon startup: Cannot create DX11 device......
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When starting the game, the logo appears with a loading bar under it. The bar doesn't appear to get to the end (last text seen is "loading profile options") when it crashes with the following error message:

"Cannot create DX11 device:
Adapter (NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M) Fullscreen
Resolution 1920x1200, format R8G8B8A8_UNORM, refresh 60Hz
Error E_OUTOFMEMORY"

Tried reinstalling directx, display drivers, Installed the new NVIDIA Beta drivers and the game. Still doesn't work.

And i tried:

  1. Restart into safe mode
  2. Use Driver Cleaner on NVIDIA
  3. Restart normally
  4. Install Beta Drivers again
  5. Restart computer
  6. Try to run the alpha again
  7. Observe crash

I then installed the drivers again and still not works.

NOTHING WORKS :( {F23008}

make sure that you match the system requirements ^^

Did you try other DX11 games?
Could you try dev version on Steam.
Right click on Arma III in your Steam Library>Properties>Betas>development build
This version may not stable and it can contain more bugs, than Stable Arma 3 version.

Thank you.
