Battlefield 4 wont launch

Hi I just bought battlefield 4 and I have installed it, anyways I tried to launch the game and it wont launch. Nothing happens so I went to the website and went to the battlelog joined a server and it started working. The only way I can play the game is when I use the battlelog system. Was wondering if anyone else was having the same problem. I also tried putting down my firewall and doing a repair install but nothing is working plz help. reply if anyone is having the same problem thanks

Re: Battlefield 4 wont launch

  • 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.

Also, make sure the game is whitelisted in your antivirus software as that could be blocking the launch of the game.
