Having an issue with restarting Arma 3
New, NormalPublic


I stopped playing Arma 3 back in June of 2021. All because my video card couldn't handle the game. ( My computer is a 2014 model, running under win 8.1 AsuaTek Computer inc
Asus Desktop PC M11bb Series
AMD A6-6400 APU with Radeon(tm) Grapgics 3.90 Ghz Changed to an Nvidia HD Card ( driver in is Driver Version )

Driver date 2017-12-18
8.00 GB Ram
64-Bit Operating system,x64-based Processor )

I had deleted any game folders from my puter, prior to the request to have it re-instated.

I had steam re-instate the game and i got the Exception error listed below.

What would be the best fix for this, if any?
