How to fix the error “DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine error”

When launching some modern games, such as “PUBG”, the error “DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine error” may appear . The reasons may be as follows:

  • DirectX problems.
  • Video card problems.
  • Operating system crashes.

This error also manifests itself in different ways. Firstly, when starting the game, the corresponding message “” DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine error “may appear. In addition, the game can start, however, the following bugs appear in the process :

  • A character’s passage through walls.
  • “Invisible” walls.
  • Shotgun reloading does not stop. Only changing weapons helps.
  • The weapon of the killed characters “hangs” above the ground.

Troubleshoot “DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine error”

The fix for the DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine error depends on the reason for the error . Let’s sort them out in order.

  1. If the required DirectX 10.0 component is missing, you must update it to the latest version. This can be done at the link https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=35. Installation is carried out automatically. After completing it, you should restart your computer and restart the game.
  2. If updating DirectX does not help, check that your graphics card drivers are up to date. This can be done in the “Device Manager”. Select “Video adapter”, then right-click on the name of the video card, then click on properties. An option to update drivers will appear in the window that opens.
  3. However, it should be borne in mind that if the problem is not with the drivers, but with the performance of the video adapter, updating the software will not help. The only solution is to replace the video card with a modern device.
  4. Another common reason that concerns primarily those who play on a laptop is the presence of two video adapters (one built-in, the second installed after purchase). The system uses the weaker integrated adapter by default. Therefore, it should be disabled. This can be done in the same “Device Manager” – right-click on the built-in video adapter, then select “Disable device”.
  5. Problems with the operating system most often arise when using old operating systems that are not supported by developers (Windows 7, Vista, etc.). It is recommended to update the software to Microsoft-supported versions – 8 or 10.

If after all the above manipulations the game still does not work, then, probably, the problem is with it. Try installing patches and updates, or contacting developer support.
