Fix Spider-Man PC Windows Version Error

Spider-Man Windows Version Error – Spider-Man PC is finally out after a lot of anticipation, and the PC version is called the Spider-Man Remastered, just like the PS5 version, with improved graphics. The game was released on the PS4 console more than three years ago and was way inferior to the graphics version compared to the Remastered version.

The PC version of Spider-Man Remastered has been published by PlayStation PC LLC, which is the same studio responsible for bringing all the PlayStation exclusives such as Days Gone, God of War, and a lot more PlayStation Titles on the PC.

Spider-Man PC has incredible features like RTX, DLSS, DLAA with unlocked Framerates, etc. The game also features AMD FSR as well. I have to say Spider-Man games returning to the PC platform is one of the best events in 2022 for PC Gaming!

But the game also came with its share of issues, and the one we are addressing today is the Windows version error which shows:

This game requires Windows 10 version 1909 (build 18363) or later

But some players report that despite having updated to the latest version, or even with Windows 11, some still face this error. So this article will guide you on how to fix the Windows version errors in Spider-Man Remastered PC.
