Dynamo Crashing at Launch

#1

Hi There,

I’ve installed Dynamo 2.0.2 on a colleague’s PC (Windows 7 x64). Everytime we launch Dynamo through Revit (2018.3) it crashes immediately giving the following error message:

HRESULT: [0x8876086A], Module: [SharpDX.Direct3D9], ApiCode: [D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE/NotAvailable], Message: Unknown

I found a post from December 2016 with someone encountering the same error message however the issue was never resolved.

Wondering if anyone has found a solution to this in the 2.5 years since the previous post.

Thanks in advance.

Have you checked for Revit updates in the Autodesk Desktop App? :slight_smile:

Hi @CVestesen

No I haven’t but I’ll try this first thing in the morning when I’m back in the office.

Thanks

If that doesn’t work, uninstall all things Dynamo, check the registry, and try again.

No luck with that unfortunately, I’ll try a full uninstall and reinstall as suggested by @JacobSmall and see how that goes…
