Looks like steam overlay crash. Callstack doesn't match. But final crash location matches.

Confirmed. Delete/rename GameOverlayRenderer64.dll from Steam directory.

Nope.Still same error.

Can you upload the Report for the new crash?

@stani Steam overlay is still active. And is still causing the crash. Disable Steam overlay. And delete the file like I said. Then try again.
@koriaba Exactly the same.

one thing.If i start the game with settings "start the game 32 bit" game will start well.What the problem can be with 64 bit version?

The problem is not Arma. It's Steam.
Steam will try to repair that file if it detects that it is missing. It is probably doing that while you start Arma. Even though overlay is disabled and it shouldn't do that Steam still does it.
They pushed a update to that file 3 days ago. Shortly before the crashes started to appear everywere.
you could create a dummy file with the same name and write-protect it so that Steam cannot overwrite it.

Does the issue still occur? Or were you able to fix it?

The fix would be Steam fixing their GameOverlayRenderer64.dll. I didn't check if it got an update yet.
This is essentially a Steam Bug not Arma.

Just before you open arma in steam, delete "GameOverlayRenderer64.dll" from steam directory.One way to start Arma 3 64 bit that i now know

Wulf claimed this task.

Ok, good to know. :)

Just in case the problem would occur again, could you download the development version of Arma 3 and through the Diag Exe version, could you recreate the crash and send dumps from that? Thanks. :)
