Arma 3 Alpha does not launch
Closed, ResolvedPublic


uninstalled and installed again -> added launch option "-nobenchmark" without quotes > turned off zone alarm, windows firewall, avira antivir.
tried it in several sequences and nothing worked. i can see the program arma3....exe in the processes and after 5-10 seconds, it disappears and nothing happens.
also tried to run it in xp and admin mode, but its always the same; arma3.exe starts visibly under processes and then breaks up and disappears without any message or log.
