Arma 3 launcher crashes as soon as I press the "play" button in steam; it gives no specific reasons, just says that "Arma 3 Launcher has stopped working"
- Operating System
- Windows 7
- Game Crash
So my laucher stopped working for some reason even though it worked perfrectly before. I looked through all FAQs and forum reports, installed and reinstalled everything that was suspected to cause problems and nothing helped. Reinstalling the game didn't help either.
I suspect two Windows update to be the problem which I installed in order to Dishonored 2 to start working (KB3020369 and KB3172605).
I tried removing them but it turned out that KB3020369 cannot be removed; launcher will still crash after removal of KB3172605. DXdiag and other required files are attached below.
P.S. - the game does start via arma3.exe but I cannot configure and manage mods downloaded from the workshop, so I cannot play online.
the error report should be stored directly on your desktop as a text file. If there's none, you can check Event Viewer:
- Start Launcher and make it crash.
- Open program called Event Viewer from your start menu.
- In the Event Viewer navigate to Windows Logs / Application in the tree on the left.
- In the list in the middle there should be two consecutive errors (one with source 'Application Error' and one with '.NET Runtime'), the details from General tab for both of them is needed to diagnose the issue.
.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.5420 - Неисправимая ошибка в модуле исполнения (59A2E92A) (80131506) (which means something like unfixable execution exception)

I can send the same in Russian (which my PC unfortunately has) as it might be more clear.
