Windows 10 will not launch BFH

★★★★ Novice

It's another Windows 10 & Hardline issue.  The problem I'm having is it will not launch the game.  It looks like it's going work...but after like a minute or two it comes back with the message "Your game didn't launch" or something like that.  I have tried everything out there without success.

 

BF3 & BF4 works under IE

No issues with Windows Live Games or Steam.

BFH doesn't not work under FF, C, IE or Edge

Video Drivers are up to date (AMD 6950)

 

I've uninstalled Origin, repaired BFH, Run as Admin, disabled all firewall/antivirus, etc.

 

It's been over a month since I've been able to play this game.  I'm not in a good place right now and out of options.  EA, Hopefully you've got a fix for me.

No clue, but it started working again today.  The last thing I did was cleared cache again in IE, enabled plugin free and rebooted.

  • Open your Event Viewer by pressing Windows + r and entering eventvwr and try to find some additional information concerning your crash related to your bfh.exe (please read this article for additional information)
  • Make sure that you do not run any programs like MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision or Fraps in the background
  • If you use RivaTuner please make sure that you disable Custom Direct 3D Support
  • Try to run the bfh.exe in Windows 8 Compatibility Mode
  • Run the Origin.exe and BFHWebHelper.exe with administrator privileges

If you still are not able to launch Battlefield Hardline, please send us your DxDiag.

 

Best of luck!

disable the Origin Cloud Storage: (didn't work)

Tried all those other options (didn't work)

Nothing stood out in EventLog.

 

Here are my dxdiag results.

Let me just say how much this stinks.  I haven't been able to play this game for almost two months.  EA?  Origin?  Do you care?

Thanks for posting the conversation. I'm glad they are aware of this issue are having a patch coming to hopefully fix this, but they really do need to let us know that. I seriously considered giving up and moving onto other games and not coming back. When you cant play a game for 3+ months and have no idea that the company intends to do something, you normally would move on.

I've had the same problem from the moment I installed Windows 10.

 

Only way to play was to login with a new user on my pc that I created once Windows 10 as installed.

 

Since I was sick of doing so, I started to troubleshoot the problem again today.

 

With me, the proces of the BFHWebHelper.exe started when joining a server or starting campaign.

But BFH.exe never got started.

 

What I did, was to delete BFHWebHelper.exe from "Program files (x86)\Origin Games\BFH"-folder.

After that, the game launched normally.

 

BFHWebHelper.exe never got reinstalled by the game...but no idea why u need it...
