DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine

A number of players have reported this error when trying to run our game.

I have also been able to repro the problem. If I have my monitor plugged into my nVidia card, the editor will run without a problem. However, if I try to run a standalone game, it fails. I have not been able to yet figure out a difference between when the editor starts up vs. when the game starts up, but it happens every time.

Hi BrynBennett -

You will need to get this Platform update from Microsoft and after install and restart you should be back up without any warnings.

This assumes you are on Windows 7, if you are on a different OS, please let me know -

Thank You

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I’m on Windows 8.1

I saw that fix when googling for the problem, but didn’t think that it was a relevant fix for 8.1

Can you post your DXDIAG here?

what if I am trying to run a dedicated server on Windows Server 2008 ??? I get the SAME problem when i attempt to start the server as soon as everything is initialized and loaded…WHY would you want to run a DEDICATED STANDALONE SERVER on windows 7 ???
