Love to play with Windows 11 and 10. Suggestion - Going for Registry change or system files edit then remember to take a backup or create a restore point before Starting.

  1. I had the same issue after updating NVidia drivers while Bluestacks was running. I got it resolved by updating bluestacks from the settings menu in bluestacks, to the latest version. This saved me from reinstalling it and losing my setup 🙂
