Check if it's blocked in the Nvidia Control Panel. Open NCP > 3D Settings > Program Settings > Drop down menu, select application you want > Select graphics card you want to force It's probably set to Auto and uses the wrong GPU. Keep in mind forcing it will prohibit it from using the other GPU. If doesn't work then you can use this https://techloris.com/application-has-been-blocked-from-accessing-graphics-hardware/ guide to solve this issue. Hope this work for you as it work for mine.
