It happens with both the 32-bit and 64-bit exe's.

Loading screen appears and it get's 95% of the progress bar loaded and then crashes right before it would normally spawn the console screen.

Getting this as well on the arma3server_x64.exe, runs fine on the normal branch - complete fresh install

Try to start the server again - but this time with steam running and logged in. This one made the server work again (on my dedicated VPS). But as soon steam is not running anymore, it crashes again.

Can confirm the above, launching with steam running and logged in seems to work

I don't have steam installed on my dedicated server. I only have SteamCMD. Tried logging into SteamCMD while launching and it still crashes.

SteamCMD does not work with this, only with the Steam client.

This appears to be resolved now
