Arma 3 started to crash - 0xC0000417 - STATUS_INVALID_CRUNTIME_PARAMETER
New, NormalPublic


I was playing the game on this PC for a maybe 50 hours then I started to get this crash today - 3 times in a row in 2 hours. Happened to me few days back too, but only once and then I played 10+ hours just fine.

Can you look on to it? The game started to be unplayable right now.

What was I doing:

  • playing unmoded (launcher - run without mods...) multiplayer game on official server (cca 40 people), warfare scenario
  • the crash happened always when I was flying (Kajman and Neophron)

What happens:

  • error message appears, game freezes, the game closes itself when hitting OK on error box

What I checked:

  • verified game files via steam
  • rebooted PC
  • checked temperatures - CPU, GPU motherboard... (every sensor HWINFO picked) - average was 60C with 70C spikes
  • tried changing a server then returning back to original server
  • started Windows System File Check - passed
  • Reinstalled Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable package (both x86 and x64 version)
  • Tried all memory allocators
  • Disabled Steam and Radeon overlay

Additional info:

  • GPU drivers was not updated or something. It is still the same for the whole time playing (latest)
  • AV software not installed - this is just gaming OS with software only for gaming
  • game is installed on NVMe SSD
  • attached after-crash report in this post

Have you tried removing the -malloc parameter?

Yes I tried. I was playing without the parameter just now and it crashed again (including report in attachement).

I tried to remove the game profile completely (deleted C:\Users\nevim\Documents\Arma 3) and I had 2 days without crash. I updated the game today and the crash appeared again. I will try to reset again and see if it helps or it was just coincidence. Is it possible this is the reason for crash or should I try something else?

Ok dead end. Removed profile again but the crash persists.

I installed Win10 as a last desperate option to fix this and the error disappeared. Now I am facing different issue ... I guess I will never enjoy the Jets DLC :(
