Arma 3 Crashes Upon Startup
Closed, ResolvedPublic


My game crashes upon startup without outputing any kind of error message. After I checked the .RPT files the last 4 rows are those:
18:52:38 Error: JoystickDevices - CoInitilizeEx return 80010106
18:52:39 InitSound ...
18:52:39 Error: CoInitilizeEx (XAudio2-1st trial) return 80010106
18:52:39 InitSound - complete
I tried everything from driver cleaning in safe mode and reinstalling to audio driver reinstallation, removing all of my Joysticks\Gamepads from the USB ports... Don't know what else to do.

Thank you for reporting the issue.
We need crash dump files from this folder to analyze your problem.
C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\
Can you upload somewhere in winrar package, please?
Archive smaller than 5000 KB can be attached directly to the ticket. For bigger archives, please use some free sharing service and post link here.

How to find correct crashdump file:
Try to make the crash happen
Look into crashdump folder
Upload crashdump with latest date in name (crashdump is rpt + bidmp + mdmp file with same name). Please try to provide as many crashdumps as possible, it helps us investigating the problem in a big way.

Thank you.

I clean wiped my PC and it works again, so sadly I don't have the files.
