The file you deleted was necessary for the game to launch via homescreen shortcut. I deleted it then tried to launch it from the shortcut and it prompted me to reinstall the forsaid deleted file.

I downloaded the game under origin and so after I deleted that file I tried launching it from the shortcut and like you said, it don't work. But it wouldn't let me launch from origin either. I don't think origin is a shortcut, because if it is, there is no original launcher or whatever on my device

I believe I found a solution

 

I had a problem with Fifa 15, and managed to make it work by puting the Fifa 15 game file on my Antivirus exceptions list, sooo, I did the same with BFH

 

And BAM! it worked

 

Hope it helps guys! see ya!

 

PS: I use Avast

I tried everything. I am running Windows 10
This worked for me.
Go to your bfh folder
On the bfh.exe
Right click on properties
Change to read/write
Ok
Change the compatibility mode to Windows 8
Run the game
Select mantel as the renderer
Close the game.
Uncheck the compatibility mode on the bfh.exe file.
Run the game.
Should work fine now.

Hi @Megatech1966

 

If you still have this problem, then please uninstall AVG, disabling not enough.

Hi @Arpadiusz

 

I am not using AVG. I have Avast.
I got the game running fine now.

 

I tried running the game with Avast fully enabled.

It worked fine.

Hi, I wasn't able to start BFH for Month, tried, compatibility settings, antivirus and firewall settings, disabled them all, no success.

Today I tried something else and solved it for me, the stupid game has problems with the Borderless Setting, only Fullscreen and Windowed works.

I mostly play my games Borderless so I can switch fast to other programs.

 

First i made a backup of my BFH Profile in My Documents\BFH\settings there I opened the PROFSAVE_profile config file and edited the Fullscreen settings.to

 

GstRender.FullscreenEnabled 1
GstRender.FullscreenMode 0
GstRender.FullscreenScreen 0

 

This is the Fullscreen setting in the game.

I did this so I don't lose my other video/audio settings, so I hadn't set them again, but if this doesn't matter to you, you can just delete the config file PROFSAVE_profile after you made a backup.

 

I hope this helps some of you.
