I am having a bear of a time getting ReShade to run with ARCDPS in Guild Wars 2. I know that this isn't supported by ReShade themselves but I'm hoping that someone is feeling charitable. Maybe someone can help me interpret the dump file so that I can get this working. This situation is extremely frustrating because I had it working before on my old PC, I had it working on my new PC (built this weekend) then I had an issue with Windows 10, had to create a new user account and now it isn't working. I don't have a clue what the new user would have to do with anything but before it was working and now it isn't.

I downloaded ReShade 4.6.0 and ran as admin which puts d3d9.dll, ReShade.ini and reshade-shaders folder in the base directory for Guild Wars 2. ReShade does not run when you have the files there so I moved them to the bin64 folder. ReShade runs fine like this but I also want to use ARCDPS. In order to use ARCDPS or any other mods with ReShade someone came up with a chain loader, d3d9_chainload.dll. The idea is that you rename the ReShade d3d9.dll to ReShade64.dll and leave it in bin64 with the ARCDPS d3d9.dll and d3d9_chainload.dll. That is how I had it working before on my old Windows 7 rig and it worked fine, though that was ReShade 3.4.1.

I did exactly as I have described with my new rig and it didn't work. The output from the dump file looks like this:

Does anyone have any idea what I should do? I'd really appreciate any kind of help. Thanks!

Try doing a clean install, first remove everything from bin64. reshade-shaders folder, ReShade64.dll ReShade.ini, or ReShade64.ini.

After you reinstall, you have to move everything to bin64 not just dll and ini, move the reshade-shaders folder also. I also renamed my ReShade.ini to Reshade64.ini
