  • When you attempting run  your UWP DirectX 12 app via Visual Studio, it throws the following error:
    Microsoft C++ exception: Platform::COMException ^ at memory location <location>. HRESULT:0x887A0004 The specified device interface or feature level is not supported on this system.
    WinRT information: The specified device interface or feature level is not supported on this system.

    The output tab reads: “D3D12GetDebugInterface: This method requires the D3D12 SDK Layers for Windows 10, but they are not present on the system.”

  • This error occurs because setup failed to download some DirectX diagnostic files.  The missing files can be addressed by doing the following:
    1) Open an Administrative command prompt.
    2) Run C:\program files (x86)\windows kits\10\bin\10.0.15063.0\x86\DismFoDInstall.cmd
