You might have encountered the “Enshrouded.exe has crashed”, and you don’t know how to fix it or how to make your game work again. There are multiple solutions, but some require a little bit of tinkering on your part.

We will show you some of the easier ways you could fix the game, with a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

How to Fix “Enshrouded.exe has crashed”

The crash mostly happens because of a problem with the video settings in the game; however, there might be other factors that can cause a crash. Here, we tell you how to solve this error.

Verify the integrity of game files

One easy way to fix “Enshrouded.exe has crashed” without having to download anything is to verify the game files. You can do this directly on Steam, and you can fix it fairly easily too. First, you need to restart your computer and launch Steam as an administrator.

Once Steam has launched, click on your library and look for the game. Right-click on the icon and select properties from the menu that will pop up. In the new menu, select the “Installed Files” option, and then click on the “verify integrity of game files” option.

The verifying process can take several minutes, depending on the possible damage or missing files this process might find. They will all be replaced and redownloaded if needed.

Run Enshrouded as an admin and change the compatibility setting

Sometimes running games as an administrator solves almost any problem you can be facing. Right-click on “Enshrouded” and select “Properties.” Here, click on the “compatibility” tab, and then click “Run this program as an administrator.” Click on “apply” and finally “ok.”.

If the first step doesn’t do the trick, you should also change the compatibility. In the same “Compatibility” tab we mentioned, select “Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows 8/Windows 7”; click on “apply” and then on “ok.”.

Upgrade your graphic drivers

Depending on the card you have, you can go to the AMD or Nvidia official websites and look for your driver’s updates. Search for yours and download the right drivers. Once the installation process finishes, and you restart your computer, see if the issue is solved.

You can find all of this in the device manager menu on Windows. Press “Windows” and search “Device Manager.” Here, right-click on your graphic card and click on “update driver.” If you have an integrated graphic card, this one might be the one causing the crash. In the same menu, expand the display adapter tab. Right-click on the integrated graphic card and click on “disable device.” Click on “yes,” open your game, and check if this solves the issue.

Check your RAM when playing the game

The RAM manages every task going on in your computer, including the games. Usually, Enshrouded crashes due to a lack of GPU power or not enough RAM to work properly in its current settings. You can improve the RAM performance on Windows to avoid any malfunction by checking if you meet the minimum requirements to play the game and by tracking and cleaning up processes.

RAM/Memory from the Task Manager

One way to track your RAM performance is through the Task Manager. On the performance tab, you can see how your GPU, your RAM, and other parameters are working during certain processes. If you want to improve the overall speed and RAM usage, you can eliminate unnecessary processes on the processes tab and then check the performance.

You can also disable startup programs that use too much of your RAM. In the “Startup” tab on the “Task Manager,” you can see a list of all your startup programs and the impact they have on your memory.

Here we share a lot of possible solutions; however, if nothing comes of this, you can just uninstall and reinstall the game. We suggest that you try everything we mentioned here in this list before doing this process because you might lose part of your saved states.
