Blocked loading of file.
Reviewed, NormalPublic


When I try to play arma 3, I open the game and press play. When it's launching battleeye blocks these two files 'C:\Windows\System32\cryptbase.dll' and 'C:\Windows\System32\secur32.dll'. I have no idea how to fix it. I've tried reinstalling battleye, arma 3, validating my game files, none of it works. My firewall isn't blocking anything important I don't think. Anyways, when I launch arma 3 those two files are blocked then arma 3 does not launch. I can play without battleye enabled just fine, but I need it for multiplayer.

Just as BE says if these files do not stop you from joining you can safely ignore them. Maybe run you AV and check for viruses. If everything is safe ignore the message.

Background : BE allows only specific functions to access to Arma . Some programms like fancy file explorers or other stuff try to access programms. BE stops that but only tells you that.

Do you use ZoneAlarm?

I do not use ZoneAlarm. And the files stop the game from launching.

I had a similar problem.

  1. Locate all BE files on the PC:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\BattlEye
    • С:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Arma 3\BattlEye\
  2. Stop all BE processes in the task manager.
  3. Delete all BE files. Restart the PC.
  4. Go to: \ Program files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ Arma 3 . Start arma3battleye.

Lex. I just tried that, and when I go to Start Arma3Battleye, it says "Failed to read initialization file."

For the BE Problem verify your files.
Did you run a Antivirus Check on your PC?

Please check out official BattlEye FAQ page

Third article should provide some hints on what to do in this case.

I have not ran an Antivirus Check. I'm checking the Battleye FAQ page and will let you know if anything works.

I checked the Battleye page and nothing has worked so far. Though recently my computer has been giving me notifications about not having genuine windows, even though I've had it for years with no problems.
