1338 Posts at Prepar3d.com about dxgi.dll

Recommended Posts

This is a cross post from their fourm....hoping to find an answer from among the many experts here....thanks

 

Obviously this is a major problem that still seems to remain unsolved.
After reading another forum recently

https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-fix-dxg ... rs-2623370

I began thinking about how many dxg.dll files are actually on my computer. I found 2

One in Windows/System32 which is listed as having 956kb
The second is in Windows/SysWow32 which is listed as having 764kb.

So, the question is might one dll be interfering with the other? If so, which should be deleted?
Or, are both necessary components, meaning I need to look elsewhere to solve the problem. Thanks.

The issue is that everyone is using 5000 millions addons that could be responsible for the VRAM issue. It's not fair to blame it all on LM.

I am also somebody who has not had trouble with this.  It could be addons, but I also think the problem is with settings and peoples overclocks (cpu and GPU).  However I say this as somebody with an 11gb VRAM card.

In fact, you can VRAM-crash the sim with just two or three add-ons. And LM takes the blame for not allowing users any recourse for when they accidentally go over the limit (or even just near the limit, it'll crash then, too!). Instead of having an opportunity to change settings, the sim just crashes.

I'm running v5 on a laptop with high settings, and all ORBX, PMDG, ASP3D, ProAtcx and never get CTDs or vram issues. I used to be a big complainer about the initial release, but after doing a full uninstall of ALL ADDONS and the sim and starting from scratch, its been running perfectly since.

Spoiler: at least you have the opportunity to change the settings after restart.

Internet search on "DXGI.DLL ERROR" and I stopped counting when I got to over 1 Million hits ... most seem to be games, some simulators, a few were from graphics applications.  

There are many sources for DXGI.DLL:

1.  Coding error (rare but can happen) 

2.  DXGI.DLL is replaced by another product (shader tools do this) or by a pirated game that gives one a virus for "free" via the DXGI.DLL (this is the most common)

3.  Hardware is marginal (overclocked even from factory) and/or not maintained (aka dust removal) so it overheats

4.  File and/or registry corruption

5.  Trying to run a 64bit process in a 32bit OS

 SysWOW32??  Are you running Windows 10 64bit?

Cheers, Rob.

Nice! I’m waiting on a new custom build laptop to arrive which will be a AMD 3700X, RTX2070 8GB, 32GB DDR4, and 144Hz display.

When you say 'everything' is that including Windows OS too?

I don’t think that it’s obvious at all that there is a major problem with the sim.

Take care with you settings and don’t try and run this sim with a potato video card.

I’ve had this error a total of one time, due, I think, to dynamic lighting at a specific airport pre-hotfix 1. So, in the last month or two, have not seen it at all and in fact had forgotten it was a thing.

Also, 1338 is an odd choice of number. I would have gone with 1337, which better describes p3d simmers. 🙂

Asus Z-87A MOBO, NVIDIA GTX 760 GPU, INTEL I5 4690CPU,

I know this is antique by today's standards, and I do plan on updating once the Microsoft 2020 P3D situation works itself through the process..

Thanks for your interest.

Yep.. complete factory reset. Was a huge pain but the results were well worth it. I'm thinking most of my issues were because I had v4 installed previously, then installed v5 and things just didn't run smooth. After the whole reset I was amazed at the smoothness I now have.
