    Failed to initialize Vulkan

    jonslow

      I get this error when launching Dota 2.
      My specs are:
      AMD FX-6300
      RX 480

      8GB RAM
      ASUS Sabertooth 990FX v2
      Seasonic G-Series Gold 750W
      Microsoft Windows 8.1 x64


      My drivers are up to date

      This is the error I get when using vulkaninfo.exe

      ===========

      VULKAN INFO

      ===========

       

      Vulkan API Version: 1.0.21

       

      WARNING: [loader] Code 0 : Registry lookup failed can't get layer manifest files

      INFO: [loader] Code 0 : Found manifest file C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamOverlayVulkanLayer64.json, version "1.0.0"

      ERROR: [loader] Code 0 : Registry lookup failed can't get ICD manifest files, do you have a Vulkan driver installed

      C:\releasebuild\LoaderAndValidationLayers\demos\vulkaninfo.c:677: failed with VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY

       

      Googling got me nowhere, looks like there are other people with this problem but no solutions are available.

       

      UPDATE
      This is what I get in the error log:

      vkEnumerateInstanceExtensionProperties( NULL, ... , NULL ) failed.
