Debug vkCreateSwapchainKHR


is there a simple method to debug why vkCreateSwapchainKHR fails on a system with VK_ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED?

At least the imageFormat/imageColorSpace, preTransform and presentMode are chosen from device caps returned by the enumeration functions.


No. This error is stated to be for “implementation specific reasons”. That means figuring out why it happened is outside of the boundaries of the standard.
