If you ever get the nightmare error that is “Virtual device driver failed DLL initialization” on a windows app, there’s a surprisingly easy fix for it.
- Start the registry editor
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\VIRTUALDEVICEDRIVERS\VDD
- Highlight that value. Then go to EDIT and choose DELETE.
DONE!! No multi-hour troubleshooting-everything-else-and-the-kitchen-sink-to-fix-it kind of thing!
