Title: Kombustor won't run. Errors on a Vulkan driver file.
Post by: Snacko on June 24, 2020, 01:41:24 AM
Just installed the latest Kombustor and when I run it nothing happens..

So I looked in the Windows Event Viewer and found this error:

QuoteFaulting application name: MSI-Kombustor-x64.exe, version: 4.1.6.0, time stamp: 0x5ed9f95a
Faulting module name: igvk64.dll, version: 26.20.100.7263, time stamp: 0x5d8bde00
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000000000061a24e
Faulting process id: 0x1eb0
Faulting application start time: 0x01d649b50f3cff5e
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Geeks3D\MSI Kombustor 4 x64\MSI-Kombustor-x64.exe
Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\igdlh64.inf_amd64_d03105a152ac7ed4\igvk64.dll

So, I looked at this file: C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\igdlh64.inf_amd64_d03105a152ac7ed4\igvk64.dll

And it is a Vulkan Driver.. 

Please Help!!   :o  ???  >:(

Check  c:\Program Files\Geeks3D\MSI Kombustor 4 x64\_kombustor_log.txt for errors

Run GPU Caps Viewer, check Vulkan tab,
try 3D demos/ Vulkan samples (except from the Mesh sample)
Export GPU data from tools tab.

Your driver is quite old, i think missing Vulkan extensions are reported by the program
Probably there are Vulkan fixes in later Intel drivers.

Thanks for your reply.  I was able to figure out that it was a driver for my onboard hdmi 2nd monitor.  I tried to do an Update Driver from it's Properties page, but it said I had the most current driver available.  So I deleted the device and removed the drivers, and also emptied the cache in the Device Manager (File/Options/Disk Cleanup).  But on reboot it just loaded the same drivers.

So I just disabled the 'Display Adapters/Intel HD Graphics 530' device.   And Kombuster worked.

But thanks for reminding me to actually go to the Intel website and check for drivers.  I guess sometimes Windows Driver search is not good?  Do you use that feature, or always just look for drivers manually online?

Thanks!   ;)
