Burnout Paradise - not launching on Win 10

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I've tried to resolve this issue with EA help. They advised me with running CCleaner and Reinstalling Windows. Ha. Ha. (I've just installed a Win 10 after a system upgrade)

Basically, when I try to launch vanilla Burnout Paradise on Win 10, nothing happens. Plainly nothing, nothing ever appears, just Origin saying I'm in game. I've tried every google result I've stumbled upon -  

Run my game as admin,
Run this game under compatibility settings - tried everything from Win 8 to Win 2000,
Uninstall all webcam software (I don't have any webcam),

Launch Burnout Config tool and set webcam to none. Strangely, I can't set any resolution for the game, the list is just empty

So, someone. Please help.

Are we are talking about the old complete box version for Steam or Origin? It still works for Win 10 on my system "origin version" with a few tweaks. Tho steam forum have a few topics regarding crash issues etc. As most don't even get to start the game.

 

The most common fix for Win 10 crashes are in fact cam related. And the simple fix for most was to go into the config settings and turn off webcam there, and to disable any via device manager if you have any installed. That worked for most. Some still needs to add comparability settings, and Windows XP service pack 2 did the trick for most. As that's all I had to do to get mine to work on Windows 10.

Not being able to set the resolution may be a clue, can you post your Dxdiag report here so we can take a look please?
