Quake will not run after Windows 10 1903 update

Recommended Posts

Hi-

 

I cannot seem to get Quake to launch after the Windows 10 1903 update from 1809. Has anyone else experienced this and possibly have a solution?

 

Thanks

Have not reinstalled yet, but did update NVidia to latest.

 

During Quake startup it prompts for safe mode. Either open safe mode or not it does not start. Just exits before any graphics are seen. 

Will try compatibility setting

ah shit funny you say that i'm going through the same thing. i literally have to boot quakelive 5 times before it stays running and is playable. if i boot quake my screen goes gray as if its booting then returns to desktop. just keep booting quake for like 5 or 6 times it will eventually stick and run, at least it does for me anyway

Changed QuakeLive_steam.exe to run in Compatibility mode (Windows 8) and it appears to run fine now.

Same happened here. Issue resolved itself (through updates I imagine).

It's actually better now. Steam client used to have the windows waiting cursor when I would mouse over the games and sometimes the games wouldn't start. Now it's all good.
