How to fix VRChat not loading at all on PC

So you launch VRChat and nothing happens? You are just there staring at an infinite loading screen instead of having infinite fun in the game. It is frustrating, it is annoying, and it is a huge waste of your time. But don’t worry, we have some fixes that might help you out.

Assuming that your PC is powerful enough to run the app, follow the troubleshooting steps to fix VRChat crashing not loading issue.

  • It is possible that the Windows Defender Firewall or your antivirus is preventing your game from loading properly for some reason. So, whitelist VRChat.exe in your antivirus program and any firewalls you might have running. Or simply disable the security software while you are running VRChat.
  • Another reason VRChat is not loading at all is that the game files are corrupted. Open Steam and verify the integrity of game files for VRChat.
  • Outdated software and drivers can also cause VRChat to not load properly. So, make sure you are running the latest version of Windows, and that your GPU drivers are up to date.

After doing all the above-mentioned steps, launch VRChat and see if the issue is fixed. If the problem persists, your last resort is to uninstall and reinstall VRChat. In case that doesn't solve the issue, we recommend you reach out to the support team at VRChat.
