Error Code: Chive

I can hit Play on battle.net, once the screen goes black I get this. I tried restarting battle.net, "Scan and Repair," and there wasn't any other topics about this error code at the time of posting. Can I get some help, Bungie? SPECS: i7-6700k 16GB ddr4 ram Nvidia GTX 980ti (EVGA), latest drivers installed Windows 7 64bit

    [b]UPDATE 8/28[/b] • If you are encountering CHIVE errors, please ensure that graphics drivers are up to date. If errors continue, attempt re-installing drivers. We are continuing to investigate this issue. • We have also encountered reports that players attempting to play the Destiny 2 PC Beta on Windows 7 are bypassing this issue by manually installing [url=https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36805]Microsoft Update KB 2670838[/url]. • Players may need to use the Scan and Repair function to ensure the Destiny 2 PC Beta installed properly to the PC. [quote] Previous post: Hello, Thank you for your report. We are actively investigating CHIVE errors. I will update this post when additional information is available.[/quote]

    • if you still have an issue with the game, you might have to disable the graphics card in your computer then restart it to get the game to work. just did and got it to work on my gtx 1050

    • FOR ALL OF YOU EXPERIENCING THIS THAT ARE NOT ON WINDOWS 7 AND USE NVIDIA!!! For me this was an issue with the latest graphics driver. I noticed this issue when I tried to open NVIDIA Control Panel and it said that my display wasn't using an NVIDIA Graphics card or something along those lines and furthermore I couldnt launch other games such as Overwatch. SO PLEASE CHECK THIS IS THE CASE BEFORE DOING THIS METHOD Go to device manager>Display Adapters>Click on your NVIDIA Graphics card and go to the driver tab. Go to Roll Back Driver and press yes. This should restore the driver to a previous update. Check Destiny 2 and see if it works. You'll have to play with old drivers for now, but it should work fine and hopefully this issue is resolved soon so you can update the drivers and still be able to play.

    • The error code is due to players being on Windows 7. Please reply to this if your computer has this error but is not on windows 7.

          Also encountering the Chives error. i7-4770k GTX 1070 Windows 10 - all system updates installed - latest nvidia drivers installed Complete clean re-install of the drivers did nothing, scan & repair also did not do anything. This problem is not solved, so you should probably unmark this topic :p. Works flawlessly on my Win10 laptop with a GTX 1060, Win10, and not-quite-up-to-date drivers. Edit: ... I disabled some background applications, now it's working (AutoCAD monitor, also my GPU OC software that came with the card, and some other stuff; I think it was the GPU software) Not really fond of running into these kind of problems in 2017 :|

                  Bungie's official statement: https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Post/230291336?sort=0&page=0 ****PROBLEM SOLVED**** I don't know exactly what was in the Windows 7 updates, whether it was the .NET files or some of the other security updates, but 1 of them or a combo fixed the issue. Destiny 2 now runs with no problems. I don't believe it is a graphics card or driver issue. If your updater does not work, meaning it won't start or get past 0%, I found a web page on Microsoft's forum that has the answer: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_7-update/fix-windows-7-update-stuck-on-checking-for-updates/ad6cfeef-232a-49b4-a57b-39978eea6630?auth=1 ****PROBLEM SOLVED**** I am seeing the same issue. Bummer. Intel i5-2500K 3.3GHz 16 GB RAM EVGA GeForce GTX 970 DirectX 11 Display panel 1920x1200 Windows 7 Pro 64-bit **As stated on another post by Bungie to update or reinstall video drivers, I have reinstalled the latest NVIDIA drivers for my card, version 385.41. Same message remains, "Graphics failed to initialize".

I hope it solve the problem for someone else.
