    Hi after closing msi and riva tuner also rtss in task manager I go through your process as in the video, when I click install I get an error message. Riva Tuner Statistics Server 7.3.0 Beta 10 Setup : Error opening file for writing: C:\Program Files (x86)\RivaTuner Statistics Server\EncoderServer.exe Click Abort to stop the installation, Retry to try again, or Ignore to skip this file.
    Could you give me advice on this please
    Many Thanks

      Hi, thanks for the comment πŸ™‚

      It sounds like the encoderserver.exe is running in the processes which is stopping it from being able to be overwritten. Restart your PC then have a look in Task Manager and make sure the encoderserver.exe is not running. If it is then close it and run the setup file again.

      Also, make sure you are running the setup file as an admin

      If the above fails you may need to uninstall Rivatuner and install it again (this may lose your configs though)

      Hope this helps. let us know how you get on πŸ™‚

    Now THIS recommended solution did indeed fix the problem. Editing the congig file is the first step, but only the inclusion of the new beta resolved it completely.

    Would this error cause my game to significantly drop FPS? I have always gotten 80+ fps while playing, but after this most recent windows 10 update, I get the component hook error and my game is down to an unplayable 30 fps. This has never happened before..

      Hi πŸ™‚

      Try running the game without MSI Afterburner and Rivatuner running and see if you still get the issue. If you don’t then unfortunately that’s what is causing the issue.

      If you are getting the issue while the programs are not running then it is most likely caused by the new Windows update so you will need to try rolling it back.

      Hope this helps πŸ™‚
