    Default Screen mostly black

    I'm returning to Rift after a long time away. When I log into my old characters, I can see the UI, but not the character or background (see attached image).

    I've updated windows (7) and my graphics drivers. I've dl'd DirectX 9, but it wouldn't install on my system, saying I have a more up-to-date version (11).

    Is there any hope or do I have to say goodbye to Rift forever?

    Thanks.

    Use dx 11 or 12.
    Try repair.
    Don't use windowed mode.
