BF4 Can 't Start Game

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Newbie

Hi

 

I can't start this game in any mode.  Win7 64bit, NV770, 16GB Ram, latest drivers.

 

After installing game without any errors I click on the 'Play Campaign' button or 'Play Multiplayer' button and nothing happens.  It doesn't try to launch the game, there are no error messages, just simply nothing happens.

 

I contacted your tech support who suggested trying a 'Repair Install' which made no difference.  He then suggested uninstalling the game and reinstalling which I have done and again the same result.

 

I have deactived antivirus and all firewalls, tried all driver updates, and still can't even get the game to launch.

Hello,

 

Press and hold the 'Windows' Key followed by the 'R' key to open up a prompt window.
In the prompt window, type 'msconfig.'
When you have finished typing, click OK. At this point, you should now see the multi-tabbed System Configuration dialog box.
Click on the 'General' tab
Choose the 'Selective startup' option
Uncheck the 'Load startup items' box.
Open the 'Services' tab.
Check the 'Hide all Microsoft services' option at the bottom of the tab.
Click the 'Disable all' button.
When prompted, restart your computer.

  1. Make sure the game is up to date in Origin.
  2. Users have reported issues with the IE browser, try using Firefox or Chrome.
  • Head to the Battlefield 4 installation folder, C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4 by default, then find the _Installer folder.
  • In _Installer, navigate into the VC folder, then into vc2012Update3, and finally redist.
  • In redist, find both the x86 and x64 versions of VCredist.exe.
  • Run and install both versions, and your game should now launch without error.

Here is an solution:

 

When you use Comodo Firewall -> You must deinstall it, it wont fix the problem when you only shut down the program.
