Some misunderstanding / misinterpretation only!

Go for the proper & latest Win 7 64 bit driver from here : Radeon™ RX Vega 64 Drivers & Support | AMD

Better to go for Windows Updation before installing drivers : https://www.chuyu.me/en/index.html

I expect that Graphical Card settings are set as default & so not a problem!

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Further to Vineet Garg suggestion above...

NOTE: The light blue text below are links to the relevant websites and programs, just click them!

DISM++ [Deployment Image Servicing and Management] - Basic Overview

DISM++ is a FREE implementation tool that has the ability to perform Windows Updates [WU]. Some of the advantages [but not all] are:

[1] The GUI is very easy to understand and use.
[2] It is much faster than M$’s WU because it uses a different engine.
[3] It downloads the latest WU DB from the M$ servers, scans your OS, and then lists the updates available.
[4] It doesn’t install superseded updates like M$ does.
[5] It gives you the option of what you want to install.
[6] The pre-ticked updates are what is recommended and are similar to the WU critical and recommended updates. The un-ticked updates are similar to the WU optional updates.

[7] It warns you if an update:
  • Includes telemetry.
  • Has known issues with certain hardware.
  • Needs exclusive access.
  • Is suspect.
  • Your OS doesn't need it.
  • Has any other known issues.
[8] It doesn’t require re-booting between updates.
[9] It can be used to either update an install.wim image OFFLINE, or to update the LIVE OS.

If you decide to use DISM++, then it is best to run the DISM++ Windows updates a couple of times to make sure you get ALL the updates that are needed. DON’T install ANY of the ORANGE updates though [see numbers [6] and [7] above]. It can also install the required .NET Framework updates. Then just run WU to see what other updates are available, if any.

DISM++ - Run Windows Updates On The LIVE OS

DISM++ Direct download [zip] => DISM++.

Here is the quick procedure guide:

[1] Download the latest version of DISM++ [see the DISM++ Direct download [zip] link above].
[2] Extract the files using something like 7-Zip here => 7-Zip.
[3] Turn Sleep mode OFF in Power Options [you can turn it back on after you have finished].
[4] Double-click Dism++x86 or Dism++x64 and then click Run.
[5] Click Updates in the left-hand pane and then click Scan [bottom right].
[6] Once the scan has completed, click Install Updates [blue button to the right of Scan].

[7] If any warning pop-ups appear [see item [7] in the Basic Overview above], click Cancel and it will skip that one. There could be several of these appear so click Cancel to all of them.

[8] It is advisable to run the DISM++ WU a couple of times. To do this, just re-boot and Scan again [from number [4] above].

[9] Run M$ WU [Windows Update] to see if there are any other updates available.

That's it!

I hope this helps!

Launch dxdiag from the Start Menu search box, and that will show you the DirectX version installed on your computer.

@stevin42 : Sir, Wonderful share from sir iko22 !

As i understand, It makes sure that Win 7 does not have Directx 12 support for all the games. Only the makers of World Of Warcraft game have released/added support for that. We may expect that other game makers also follow & take initiatives in the direction. Just check out if yours is one of them!

But as the support ends for win 7 nearly, we can just wait & watch.

The link also tells that Directx 12 is still best supported in win 10 only.

Thanks & Regards. ...
