If you get an error message that says you are missing d3dcompiler_46.dll

- Please delete your user_settings.config file in %appdata% (\AppData\Roaming\fatshark\Warhammer End Times Vermintide Public Test).
- The same error occur if you run the Launcher from the installation folder, start it and press Start game.

Error about SlimDX.dll

You can try to replace all the contents of your launcher directory with this new version. Just remove everything in the launcher folder and unzip this file there instead. We'll be rolling out a new launcher, but in the mean time you can try this.
To find the launcher folder do this:
1) In Steam, right-click your "Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide" game in your library and choose "Properties"
2) In Properties goto "LOCAL FILES" tab and click the button "Browse local Files..."
3) In the explorer window that will open there will be a folder named "launcher", that's it.
If you run "Verify Game Cache", the game will revert to the old launcher.

    I should mention that when setting the Launcher to run as administrator, this error will also occur when hitting Start Game.

    Did you start the game via your Steam library or from the installation folder? I get the same error, regardless if I set the launcher to run as an admin or not if start it via the luancher.exe in in the installation folder, but never if I start it from the Steam client.

    I got this problem too. It started occurring after I installed Windows 10 64bit.

    EDIT
    I fixed the settings in the Nvidia Controlpanel, where the updated launcher meant the program wasn't using the right video/graphics card. This didn't fix the launching error.

    I managed to solve this by going back to an earlier version of the Nvidia Geforce driver.
    The rollback were to the driver version: 353.62.

    DOES NOT WORK.

    Honestly, all these bugs with this beta has me scratching my head. I have never seen a game decrease in performance and fill with weird bugs from one beta to the next so drastically. I can't even launch the game now.

    I am really on the edge of requesting refund. Just saying.

  • JediRiftJediRift 47 PointsMember, Level2
    Requested refund.

    Might rebuy at a later date if I hear that things are going smoother. Way too many issues for me to have any confidence in the launch when it is so close. Not jumping through 7000 hoops to make the game work as it should.

    From music volume slider being removed due to bugs, to huge decreases in performance, to this D3D error where I can't even launch the game now. Nah. No thanks.

    Best of luck.

    I didn't receive any D3D errors until I "upgraded" to the latest Nvidia driver. Have you tried doing a rollback, like people have suggested for a few days (due to the new Nvidia Driver being unstable on some video/graphics cards).

    Why the heck do you request a refund on the forum, especially in the Known Issues and Workaround Thread?
    Not that I can't see where it is coming from, since I have had my doubts about releasing the game this soon (a month longer could have worked wonders).

    (Joke, not to be taken seriously)
    But Swedish game developers have a habit of releasing game to soon, cough cough Battlefield 4 cough DICE :D

    Alright, so it was fine playing earlier this morning, now i got the .dll error. I fiddled around with it a bit, and finally managed to boot the game up. Now it completely locks my pc as soon as I zone into the inn. I've had to restart my PC twice already.

    I didn't. I requested the refund on steam, and it was already granted. The game has been removed from my library and the money is back in my paypal account.

    I simply informed them of my decision to request a refund on their forum. After waiting a few hours for any response regarding these issues, and then reading through a pile of other threads where people were running into all kinds of other issues since the inception of this beta, I decided it was best to get my money back. I cannot count the amount of threads where devs are requesting people upload videos, screenshots, and jump through 5,000 hoops to try to get the game to work as intended. With release this close off, the lack of polish made me turn away.

    I will keep an eye on this title, but as it stands now, it seems like the devs are just scrambling around last minute and breaking more things as they go. The lack of organization is evident, and I understand that this is not an easy task, but when I put my money down on a title, I expect it to be release ready. This game is nowhere near ready.

    Ahh, now it makes sense :)
    I agree that the game doesn't seem to be running smoothly enough to be released next week, and with the upcoming "Exclusive Beta" (headstart) it seems inevitable that our progress (from the "Exclusive Beta") will be saved to the full release of the game. So I also have my concerns about the upcoming release, but the 10% off made be buy it anyway (though it will probably go on a Steam Sale at some point).

    Do you know if Fatshark are the publisher?
    Since there have been quite a few "forced" releases the last few years, and I still look back in horror on Buggerfield 4.

    Then what to do ?
    Launching from steam gets same error. Deleting the file doesnt work as launching the game pops me out a new user settings file.

    I manually put the file in the game directory, and now it says that I need steam to be running while launching the game. What the heck, a solution that actually works would be needed.

    Edit : Now it works after hours of trial. Had to manually place the missing 46.dll (copy and paste from my computer) file in the game binaries folder and it worked according to holy spirit and some magic. First had some error with steam not running. And now, I don't know but it worked once at least and I could play. Nice game btw, a bit laggy maybe.

    It is now the fourth time that happened my computer completely is stuck .
    That always happens at the same place at the end on the map Mage Tower .
    While I am playing Sienna and fight for victory , suddenly my graphics card is out and there is an audio error .
    I can then just press the on / off button to restart my PC.
    And this happens only on this map at the end in this game!
