DX12 D3D12GetDebugInterface - Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Recommended Posts


Is anyone running the 1709 Windows build? ever since I updated, the call to D3D12GetDebugInterface no longer works with an error of "This method requires the D3D12 SDK Layers for Windows 10, but they are not present on the system." on previous Windows builds I'd install the optional graphics tool package but that doesn't appear to exist any more.

Have you tried re-scanning for updates after updating your OS?  You may need to reboot afterward.  

Can you send a dxdiag.txt, or reply with a copy of the System Information portion of your dxgiag.txt file?

Turns out it was update related.

Going to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU and setting the "UseWUServer" key to 0, rebooting and then going back into "Manage optional features" and the "Graphics Tools" package was available again.
