Follow these steps

- Check if you have any kind of real time scanner from your antivirus. These kinds of tools usually make the game get blocked and not launched properly.

- Be sure that you are not using Radeon Software like Adrenalin or other programs like After Burner or Riva-Tuner

- Allow the game in your antivirus/firewall black lists.

Have you checked the other steps I told you?

Originally posted by samguyjones: None of those steps were applied. I don't have Andrenalin. I don't have AfterBurner or RivaTuner. However, a Windows update fixed the problem. I'm pretty surprised.

If you are now able to play the game properly whatever has done it is welcome.

Nice to know you can enjoy the game properly.

Best regards

DXDIAG is a program you run from the Windows search box on the task bar. After running it will open a window and start collecting info with a progress bar in the lower-left corner. When it completes click the 'save all information' button and save it to a file then attach that file here.

Please attach your Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/settings.txt and pdx_settings.txt .
From your Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/logs/ folder, attach system.log , error.log .
