Default Windows 10 2017-07 Cumultive Update Causing RTSS Startup Loop--Fix? - 08-02-2017, 19:33 | posts: 1


I just downloaded/installed 2017-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4032188) moments ago on my Alienware R2 15 laptop and when I restarted it, RivaTuner started acted erratically.

It started going into this loop of wanting to start but a Compatibility Assistant pop-up window appears, with the following:

"This app can't run on this PC. RivaTuner Statistics Server - RTSS doesn't work on this version of Windows. An updated app may be available."

Running v.6 No-go there. I tried running the Windows compatibility... No-go again.

I ended up installing RTSS Beta (7) version w/out unistalling v.6 and it finally worked.

Just posting this, in the event anyone else runs into this issue. Not guaranteeing a fix, just telling my version of events that worked for me.

The Creator's Update has known compatibility issues with the RTSS 6.xx and below hooking engine. RTSS 7.xx fixes these issues and is noted in the release notes.

From the RTSS 7.xx release notes:
Hook engine is now using alternate shorter x64 hook trampoline to provide compatibility with Windows 10 Creators Update Direct3D9 runtimes. The previous trampoline can be enabled via the configuration file if necessary
