0xC0000005 - STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION Crash to Desktop
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Arma 3 crashes after about 2 - 8 minutes to desktop and displays a 0xC0000005 - STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION. No particular action appears to cause the crash.

I have tried every troubleshooting step as listed in the Wiki for this error code.
I have also deleted the entire game and reinstalled it.
The game will just randomly crash and spit me back out to the launcher. Sometimes it happens quickly and sometimes it takes a few minutes.

This happens with or without mods. It even happens on the normal campaign in single-player for the game.

The game is currently unplayable. I have over 3800 hours in the game and I'm stumped. Please send help.

This looks like you're using a USB Headset.
if yes, please try without it and see if it still crashes.
There's a bug in Windows 10's drivers somewhere that we cannot do much about that will corrupt Arma's memory and make it crash
