Failed to initialize Vulkan

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

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 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.


This is what I get in the error log:

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