Every time I try to start Vermintide 2 in DirectX12 mode, I get an error message from Easy Anti-Cheat regarding an untrusted system file.
The file in question is “dxilconv.dll” located at a quite obscure location on my PC:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Containers\BaseImages\ some hexadecimal string here \Files\Windows\System32\dxilconv.dll.
This error message is accompanied by the vermintide crash screen with GUID: 8442e78e-044a-49ce-b25b-40cbbde1ac41
My system specs:
Intel Core i7 4770
16 GB RAM
Windows 10 Pro, 64bit
What I already tried:
- Verify integrity of game files via Steam options (everything successfully verified)
- Repairing EAC with EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe in the game’s folder
- sfc /scannow in a windows command prompt (no issues found)
- DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth in a windows command prompt (no issues found)
- Rebooting, obviously
Please note that this issue only persists when trying to run the game with DirectX12 on the Official Realm. DirectX12 on the Modded Realm and DirectX11 on any Realm runs fine without error.
Thanks in advance for any help or information.
