How to Fix Game Not Launching Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Crashing at Startup

To begin with, you should start by checking to see if you meet the minimum system requirements to run the game. You can see these here. In particular, the game requires a 64-bit processor and Windows 10 or Windows 11, 64-bit OS. Without these, it won’t launch and work. Second, you should make sure that you have the latest versions of DirectX Runtime and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables.

Next, try running the game as an Administrator. Go to where the game is installed. You can do this by right-clicking on the game in your Steam library > Manage > Browse Local Files and then right-clicking on the WoLong.exe > Properties > Compatibility, and selecting the “Run this program as an administrator” option. If the game is still not working properly, you should then check to see if you need to update your GPU drivers. Go here if you have an Nvidia graphics card, and here if it is an AMD GPU.

For the next step, you need to see if the game has been installed correctly. To do this, open Steam, find the game, right-click on it, Manage > Local Files, and select the “Verify integrity of game files” option. Finally, if none of these options have worked, you should try reinstalling the game. And if even that hasn’t helped, we recommend that you contact customer support for further assistance.
