@Nokomis.5076 said:You're using any kind of shader/exploiter which is in need of d3d9.dll.

Remove that file and try to check, if your game runs vanilla. Maybe the shader/whatsoever is outdated.

The issue right now is that that's the crash dump I got after I did a fresh reinstall of the game, nothing was left of the old install. I haven't had shaders installed for GW2 for years

Here you can find to stop an update from installing and returning every time to be installed.

Source: Windows themselves.

For info - when I allowed the update to install for the second time, things got even worse - couldn't launch the game at all without a crash.

HOWEVER. I normally run Comodo Firewall, and I noticed that THAT was also glitching regularly between claiming to be working fine and some fault state that wasn't letting any traffic through (cause or effect? it wasn't obvious). But having (temporarily or otherwise) uninstalled that, suddenly things seem to be working smoothly again, and I'm at least back in game.

Although for some reason the launcher now triggers an account control prompt every time I run it. ((And... now that's cleared as well. Weird.))

(Hmm. I did nothing to re-engage the WIn 10 firewall, and it's definitely running, so it seems likely that my machine was trying to run with both active - which is probably not a great idea... I wonder whether the Windows update simply turned the default one back on without telling me? Must go back and try with Comodo on and the Windows one turned off, when I have a few minutes...)
