    Hi, I just bought Resident Evil Village on Steam. However after checking the settings The raytracing options are greyed, cant enable anything.
    Maybe something wrong with my Setup?
    I have a RTX 3090
    Core I7 4960X
    16GB DDR3 RAM
    Drivers Are up to date (471.96)
    I have Win 10 LTSC

    Wondering if will affect all games or depends of the tittle
    Whats wrong with my setup? There is a tweak need to do in order it to work?
    Thanks in advance

    mmmm looks like your windows 10 is not fully updated, as REVIII uses one of the latest directx too

    Is the game running in directx12 mode? It is required for raytracing.

    Update Windows to the latest version. Not sure if you can switch to the retail release from the LTSC version.

    You may need to reinstall windows completely. Just use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool and use it to make a bootable USB (requires at least an 8GB USB stick).

    Or you could click on Update Now and see where it gets you.

    I believe the earliest Windows 10 version to support Ray Tracing was version 1809.

    I am running LTSC 1809, no issues with raytracing so far in other games like WD Legion or Cyberpunk.
    I would have to try Resident Evil Village to be sure though.
    No-one who installed LTSC in the 1st place would sacrifice the benefits of LTSC just to get raytracing in a game they can play perfectly well.

    Just tried it, LTSC 1809, 3090 like you.
    Raytracing is greyed out for me too.
    Looks like you will have to wait for the next version update.
