Arma 3 Wont start up (Error)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


So i have recently bought arma 3, I have not been able to even get the game to start it only comes up with an error (I will show you under). I assume this error is caused by direct X. I have tried: Reinstalling the game, Updating directX, Checking game cache and looking on the internet None of them have worked Heres the error:

System32/XAPOFX1_4.dll is either not designed to run on windows or contains an error. Try reinstalling the program or contact system administrator.
(Some extra info on the error was left out not much though)
(ill also include a exact picture :/)

Direct X says its updated

We need dxdiag and files from this folder for solve your problem. C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\

Can you upload somewhere in winrar package please?
When package will be smaller than 5,000k, so you can attach here. Thank you.

Yes i uploaded the dxdiag.txt hopefully thats what you mean and i have no arma 3 alpha folder in C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local

I still see attached only arma3error.png. Can you try upload again please?

Can you try install newest DirectX End-User Runtime?

Yea i tried that, i also tried your link both say that its either newer or the same version

Can you try help from this page?

Can you try please install latest graphic and sound drivers? Usage of drivers cleaner before installing new drivers will make sure you have no corrupted drivers left on computer.
It was solution for lot of people.

Tried everything on the page, Updated drivers.. No luck

Can you try delete this dll file and install directX again then? Thank you.

I dont get what you mean by reinstalling DirectX? Like the runtime?

I meant reinstall DirectX 11, sorry for confusion.

Ive tried google all of the sources take me to websetup which still says that i have a better/same version and nothing is wrong i deleted the file though, And how would you be to reinstall DirectX 11? Apperently if it comes with the pc you cant...?

Outdated. Open a new ticket if new issues arise.
