Hitman 2 crashes after pressing enter

Every time I launch the game it runs fine until I get to the part where I need to press Enter, after that sound cuts then game crashes. A few months ago it ran just fine, I’ve searched for hours trying to fix it but nothing. In Eventviewer all it says is:

Faulting application name: hitman2.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5ee9d095

I dont know why it does this

First of all, try to update your GPU driver.
Or make a full clean reinstall of it.

Second of all, try to delete shader cache:

And third of all, try to do a disk difragmentation


I did all of those and it didnt do anything

  1. From the Launcher: Options -> Graphics API -> Direct3D 12
  2. Delete these three folders and verify gamefiles \Steam\steamapps\common\HITMAN2\dx12Retail \Steam\steamapps\common\HITMAN2\Retail C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\IO Interactive\HITMAN2\ShaderCache.bin
  3. Verify your Windows https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026529/windows-10-using-system-file-checker

Your saves are probably corrupted. Rename the folder 863550 here :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\XXXXXXX\863550

Then disable steam cloud saving, launch the game, press enter, close the game, and enable steam cloud.
