A driver/hardware issue has caused many players to be unable to launch Rainbow Six Extraction. “No compatible driver/hardware found,” says the error message. Ubisoft has acknowledged the issue and is working on a permanent fix, but there are some workarounds you can try in the meantime.
To run well, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Extraction necessitates a high-performance rig, prompting many players to use the Vulkan API. Unfortunately, the “No compatible driver” error message may appear at launch as a result of this.
Our instructions will show you how to resolve the no compatible driver error in Rainbow Six: Extraction. If Vulkan improves the performance of your games, you don’t have to uninstall it, but you will need to reinstall your graphics drivers.
How to Fix No Compatible Driver/Hardware Found Error in Rainbow Six: Extraction?
Despite the fact that Vulkan uses a high-performance video card to run games and applications, it still requires that your integrated video card’s drivers be up to date.
As a result, you must update your integrated card to the most recent version. Many players overlook this detail, resulting in an error.
Fix 1: Update .net Framework
.Net framework is responsible for the subtle functioning of the drivers and software. Although device drivers work as a medium for interaction, .net framework is extremely important for games.

After that, you should try updating your graphics driver. Most game errors, including the “No compatible driver/hardware found” error, can be fixed this way.
