Arc Control Studio Capture error

texen

Have a i5-13600K running win 11 v22h2.

I updated to driver 3959 and Arc Control came along and tried to do Studio/Capture but when I start the Capture it gives an error code -17. It complains that I cannot be connected to a VPN. Why should that matter?

I have Nordvpn installed but not currently connected.

 

Not a good start...

Hello texen,


Upon checking the available drivers for Intel(R) UHD Graphics 770, the validated driver should be


Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers Intel® Graphics Driver 31.0.101.3790/31.0.101.2114 https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19344/intel-graphics-windows-dch-drivers.html


Intel® Graphics - BETA Windows* DCH Drivers Intel® Graphics Driver 31.0.101.3616/31.0.101.2111 https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19387/intel-graphics-beta-windows-dch-drivers.html

Please test either one and provide an update wether the problem is presented anymore.

 

Best regards,

I am a little confused.  Driver 3950 was the driver that DSA installed and it is a December driver.

What you are suggesting is an October driver. Do you have any specific reason to believe the October driver will work better than the December one?

Besides this seems to be an ARC Control/Studio problem. As in my first post why would this software require a non-vpn internet connection to run a screen video capture?

Hello texen, 


This download installs Intel® Graphics Driver 31.0.101.3959 for Intel® Arc™ A-Series Graphics.

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/726609/intel-arc-graphics-windows-dch-driver.html


Therefore we recommend clean installing the validated version for your Intel® UHD Graphics 770. You may upload the video to a cloud service and provide the link for visibility.

I don't think we are on the same page here.. On Dec 14 I posted a pic of the 3959 driver installed on my system as recognized by ARC Control. I also posted a pic of the ARC Control/Studio/Capture error (see lower right corner) where ARC Control says to make sure I am not connected to a VPN Error -17. Although I have NordVPN installed I am not connected .. so why am I getting this error.. and why should me being connected to a VPN be a problem when doing a screen capture?

 

Also you should be aware when I do a clean driver install Windows 11 will come along later and update it to an older driver. This caused me to install the 3959 driver 3 times.. see

Hello texen, 


Thank you for the information, let me check this internally for investigation.

Hello texen, thank you for waiting. We replicated an environment (i7-13700K, updated to driver 3959) with the concerned driver and graphics, and did not experience a problem. 


Try resetting NordVPN to default settings or even reinstalling NordVPN and test again.

Ok I did a full uninstall of NordVPN and rebooted and tried ARC Control/Studio/Capture and still have the same error..

It is an odd error .. why would ARC Control care if I am connected to a VPN to do a desktop video capture. The developers should check under what circumstances this error is thrown .. maybe its not necessarily only caused by a VPN connection check but some other factor.

And if it is only about not having a VPN connection why is the check even made? It would seem to indicate Intel is interested in tracking users IP address .. not a good feature..

 

BTW assuming that that program did work does it encode using the UHD 770 iGPU encoder or is just a straight cpu software encode?

Hello texen, 


Thank you for the update. I will check this further. 


About encode/decoding capabilities for graphics controllers. I've got this information available Does My Intel Graphics Support Encoding and Decoding?


Please check section Processor Graphics for your Intel® Core™ i7-13700K Processor https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/230500/intel-core-i713700k-processor-30m-cache-...

The only thing a bit unusual on the system as you can see from the ssu data is I do have Oracle's VirtualBox installed on the system (but not running when I use ARC Control Capture) which uses a proxy type network interface to Win 11. I wouldn't think this should be an issue but since this error seems to 'unusual' I bring this VirtualBox existence to your attention.

Hello texen


I conducted the investigation in order to check if the problem replicated in our environment, it did not.


So we advise the following, shut off the VPN for testing

Go to Settings > Network & internet. Tap on VPN. Toggle off VPN and try again.


Otherwise, we recommend a full reinstallation of the operating system, to ensure VPN is completely removed, reinstall back NordVPN, reinstall ARC, and let us know the outcome.

Luis, what is the correct behavior for ARC Control/Studio/Capture with regard to VPN?

Will it normally work while connected to a VPN or do you really have to have the VPN disconnected or even not even loaded/started?

I am attaching my Windows VPN settings as you suggested but I have no VPN set up through windows. NordVPN is a program that is separate from Windows VPN settings,  as there is no reference to NordVPN in Settings > Network & internet. Tap on VPN. Toggle off VPN.

 

I went to Network Adapters settings (see Attachment) and disabled VirtualBox and TAP-NordVPN Windows Adaptor V9

 

Still no change same error trying to start video capture.
