Offline missions are broken using Win7 since 1.01
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

After the 1.01 update, it seems impossible for Windows 7 users to launch any offline missions. Neither the community offline mode works nor the official offline mission.

The user launches the mission by using the -mission= start parameter. After a moment of loading DayZ just closes and or is not responding.

There seems to be no information regarding that in any log. However, this should be reproducible on any Windows 7 pc.

Prior to the 1.01 update, there never was an issue with this.

I got some information that *maybe* this resolves the issue / has something to do with it: https://www.techpowerup.com/download/visual-c-redistributable-runtime-package-all-in-one/

Hello Arkensor.
The issue has been fixed internally and will be fixed on Steam in the future.
