Reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019


Anything else? I’ve done everything and am still crashing every 10 minutes or so.

They only other thing to do then is change over to DirectX9 unfortunately

DX9 is even more unstable

If you’re using an NVIDIA graphics card, then there are problems with recent drivers and SWL not getting along.

In my case it’s a notebook and I have tried every single driver available from NVIDIA for it, but none made any difference.

What are the specs of the Notebook?

It’s a Dell XPS 15 I5 with a Nvidia 540m card, 12Mb RAM and an SSD
