A lot of players have reported such errors while playing Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicleson on their PC. So, let’s see what steps you can take to fix such an issue while playing Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles game on your PC.

Step 1) Restart Steam

The first thing you can try to do is close and restart Steam and let the update finish. After this, launch the game and the errors you were getting should be fixed.

Step 2) Restart Your PC

This step is pretty simple and has worked for so many players to fix such issues. Simply, go and restart your PC and then launch the game again and see if this fixes the Unhandled Exception: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION APK_Win64_Shipping error.

Step 3) Restart the game without a controller

In the third step, try to restart the game by disconnecting a controller if you have connected any.

Step 4) Run the game as an administrator

In the next steps go and try to run the game as an administrator, to do this follow the steps below.

  • Open Steam and go to Library
  • Right-click on the Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles
  • Go to manage then Browse local files
  • Now, right-click on the APK.exe and then properties
  • Under the Compatibility tab, click Run this program as an administrator then click apply and ok
  • Now, go and try to launch the game by double-clicking on the APK.exe instead of clicking on the Play button on Steam and it should fix the error

If you are still facing the issue then follow the steps below:

  • Open Steam and go to Library
  • Right-click on the Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles
  • Go to manage then Browse local files
  • Go to APK folder then binaries and then Win64
  • Now, right-click on the APK-Win64-Shipping.exe then properties
  • Under the Compatibility tab, then put a check on Run this program as an administrator then click apply and ok

Step 5) Unplug multiple monitors connected to the PC

If you are using multiple monitors connected with your PC then go and unplugged them. Try to use only one monitor.

Step 6) Disable Intel graphics

If your PC has two graphics options enabled such as Intel HD graphics and a dedicated graphics card. Then you can try to use only a single graphics option on your PC. To do this:

  • Go to Device Manager by typing in Device Manager in the search bar on your PC
  • Now, got to Display adapters and expand by clicking on it
  • Now, if you see both Intel HD graphics and the dedicated graphics card their then disable the Intel HD graphics
  • Right-click on the Intel HD graphics and click Disable device.

Step 7) Install AIO Runtime (Important)

AIO runtime is an application for Windows PC which packs all the necessary files required to run any app, programs, software’s and games properly on your PC. AIO210 also fixes most common gaming issues and errors such as the Game has Stop Working, crashing freezing, any .DLL errors, 0xc000007b error, or any other runtime errors that you may get while starting or playing the game.

Step 8) Optimizing Games with Nvidia and AMD Application

To get better performance while gaming on your PC you can also use Nvidia GeForce Experience and AMD Gaming Evolved applications which allow you to manage your graphics card drivers and also lets you optimize the game settings.

Step 9) Optimizing or Overclocking Graphic Card Frame Rate

Optimizing your graphics card frame rate is another way that you can use to increase performance on your PC. Several third-party applications allow for the tweaking of graphics card settings and overclocking for performance boosts.

These include MSI Afterburner EGA Precision X and Gigabyte OC Guru. These Applications allow you to overclock any GPU, In addition, there are utility programs such as GPU-Z which provides detailed hardware specifications and settings of your graphics card, and Fraps which is a graphics utility that provides frame rate information.

Step 10) Prevent Windows Startup Programs

Some programs start running with the Windows startup or whenever you restart your PC. Preventing such startup programs to start provides an extra boost and helps your windows loading fast.

There are also some programs running in the background such as antiviruses which are set to receive updates automatically so, in that case, your system is already busy receiving the update and when you start the game, during that process you may find some lags while playing the game so, to get out of this issue go to the Task Manager again following the steps above and then click on the startup tab and from there now right-click on the program which you want to prevent from opening at the Windows startup and select Disable.

Step 11) In-Game Settings (Important)

Optimizing Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles using Nvidia’s GeForce Experience and AMD Gaming Evolved application is always a better option when your PC meets the Minimum or the Recommended settings which let you optimize a game on your PC with just a single click.

But sometimes you may find the GeForce Experience and AMD Gaming Evolved is unable to deliver the desired optimization settings because your system doesn’t meet the minimum requirements which are required to be able to run a game with optimal settings.

In that case, I will suggest you not use the GeForce Experience and AMD optimization settings instead you can use in-game settings which I use on my own PC also.

Go run the game you want to play and then go to the game Settings > Display and select the resolution which your Monitor supports, for example, 1920x1080p, now go to Videos > Quality and try to change the settings from low to Ultra and play the game with different quality settings one by one and look on which settings your game is running better, if it’s running well with a low-quality setting with full-screen 1920x1080p resolution then just save that setting and enjoy the game.

You can also try to switch off the Shadows, In-Depth Field, Motion Blur, and other quality setting options as well which I think doesn’t create a huge difference in overall game quality and also makes the game smoothly playable and less laggy.

Step 12) Run the game in compatibility mode

  • Open Steam and go to Library
  • Right-click on the Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles
  • Go to manage then Browse local files
  • Now, right-click on the APK.exe and then properties
  • Under the Compatibility tab, click on the compatibility mode check bob which says Run this program in compatibility mode, that’s it.

Make sure to select the Windows version you are using while selecting this option.

Step 13) Launch the game with DirectX 11 -dx11:

  • Open Steam and go to Library
  • Right-click on the Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles
  • Go to properties
  • In the Launch Option just put by typing -dx11
  • Now, try to launch the game again and the issue should be fixed

Step 14) Do a clean installation of the graphics driver

Go to the official driver website for the below brands and download the latest driver for your GPU and then do a clean install of the graphic driver on your PC.
https://www.nvidia.in/Download/index
https://www.amd.com/en/support

To perform a clean install of the driver, make sure to check the box which says Perform a clean installation on the Custom installation options window when you install the driver.

Step 15) Set performance preference high in the graphic settings (Only for laptop users)

If you are playing the game on a laptop then setting the performance preference to high could help fix the issue, to do this:

  • Go Windows search and type Graphic setting and click on it
  • Now, click on Browse and go to the Demon Slayer installation folder
  • Select the APK.exe file and click on add and once its added click on Options

Step 16)

Turn off steam in-game overlay, also close other overlay applications, also disable Steam cloud save, do not overclock, close all the overclocking application
