Win10_ DayZ Launch Error
Need More Info, NormalPublic


I am running DayZ on a Win10 PC on Steam and receive the following error when trying to launch (TBC my other Steam games launch properly). I receive the following error:

I have removed all C++ redistributables as indicated on some Steam forums and reinstalled the 2005 and 2015-2019 C++ redistributables (32 and 64 bit versions) with reboot inbetween and continue to receive the same error. I have uploaded two crash reports from your system (as per the notice) and attached herewith (they appear identical) but am providing two to show repeatability.

Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Launch Steam (automatically starts on reboot)
  2. Launch DayZ through 'launcher' icon on desktop
  3. Click "Play" on bottom left and it then produces this error
