Game doesn't launch at all when BattlEye is enabled
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The game doesn't launch at all when attempting to launch it via official launcher when BattlEye is enabled. The game launches normally if BattlEye is disabled. {F26701}


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce

Launch the game via launcher with BattlEye enabled in launcher settings

Additional Information

The game doesn't generate any RPT output or crash dumps. Clicking the 'Play' button in launcher simply does nothing.

Previous evening BE kept throwing an error message: "Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Driver Load Error (577)." Currently no error message appears but clicking the play button does nothing when BE is enabled in settings.

DxDiag is included.

this may occur if you have enabled an option "Run this program as an administrator" on Compatibility tab in Properties of arma3battleye.exe.

The possible workarounds:
a) un-check the "Run this program as an administrator" option;
b) run Launcher as administrator too.

Please let me know it this solves your problem.

to my great surprise, it indeed did fix the problem. I'm not getting the error message either anymore (it appeared also before I set the arma3battleye.exe to run as administrator), even though no data has changed which I find surprising.

But most importantly, it's working now! Thanks!

Apparently the BE error was caused by old Windows 10 build that I was using (10074). I updated manually to RTM version (10240) and the error's fixed now.

Thank you for sharing that with us.

Enjoy the game and please accept my apologies for inconvenience.
