ArmA3 Fails to Load with Current Nvidia Drivers. But Rolling back works (GTX570)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Had issue when trying to load ArmA3; wouldn't load ArmA3. From the Windows Event viewer received this message:

Faulting application name: arma3.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x512deb6a
Faulting module name: nvwgf2um.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5116d87b

Was reproducable. Solution was to rollback the driver to: 306.97-desktop-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-english-whql

And now ArmA3 works fine. Probably related somewhat specifically to an issue with Nvidia Drivers and GTX 570. Heard of similar issues with Far Cry 3. More of a heads up for support guys.

Note: Going to the latest Beta drivers resolve the issue:

However the Release Candidate RC: 314.07-desktop-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-english-whql (Won't work)

Thank you for the information. Drivers problem - won't fix.
