    Far Cry Primal no longer runs in Windows 10


    - does anyone else have the same problem..??

    Far Cry primal doesn't run on Windows 10 any more..
    I'm getting an error message saying that Microsoft will contact me when a solution is found..

    I just tried it here and it fired up fine on the Creator's Update (15063.14) build. Can you share a screenshot of the error you're getting?

    BugMeister; since Blackrose doesn't have the problem but you do, did you happen to change your AMD video driver lately?

    I'm just guessing as I don't have that game, but a number of AMD users are reporting the issue (link below) with various drivers.

    re-installed AMD drivers and switched off VSR in Display Settings.. no dice..
    switched off Crossfire and Hey Presto, it loads and runs FarCry Primal OK..

    strange thing is, both cards lit up, even though CF was disabled - which is odd..

    - anyway, game runs - problem solved..

    - thanks, guys..

    UPDATE..

    with the 17.4.1 BETA driver, crossfire is broken in DX12 games..
    Fallout4 began to get glitchy after a few minutes, as did Skyrim..
    if I continued beyond this time, the games' graphics simply broke down..
    - eventually Fallout4 refused to even load, even with a single card..

    AMD know about the problem, and have said that it's related to the Creator's Update..
    - a fix is apparently in the works, but the only solution so far, is to revert to 17.3.1 driver..

    I heard about that and feel for you, mate. Hopefully they will get it sorted out ASAP.
