I can take a closer look for you if you could attach a dxdiag to your reply - select Reply -> Choose File to upload the file to this thread.

Greetings.

 

I can confirm that this is an issue in 2017.

 

Dragon Age Inquisition when started, opens a small black window before going to full screen. When that black window becomes full screen the game immediately exits.

 

I have identified my occurrence of this problem as being related to the AVG Internet Security Business Edition on Windows 10 x64 Edition running the virus database version 4749/13718 (1/6/2017).

 

Adding the games executable to the exceptions list is a valid workaround for this issue if AVG is the source of the start failure.

Thank you for your help. My housemate got me a copy of this for PC so we can play together and I have spent the better part of a fortnight trying to get it to launch. I look forward to playing with my Xmas present. Thank you again.

Yes! That worked. 

This happened to me before and and I knew it was alot easier to fix than uninstalling/reinstalling drivers, and playing around with a clean boot. 

 

I also added DA:I as an an exception in AVG,  Options, Advanced Settings, Exceptions, then chose application/file, found the .exe for DA:I  (C: Program files, origin games, Dragon Age Inquisition)

 

I disable origin in game:  for the newest (2017) version of origin:  Origin, application settings, more. 

 

I updated the Patch package. in (C/ programs,/origin games,/dragon age inquisition/update) by adding 1 to whatever it said. so 10 becomes 11, 12 becomes 13.. etc)

 

I am making sure my graphics software is up-to-date now, but it looks like deleting the ProfileOptions_profile files worked. 

 

 

Just so everyone knows, My game would open to a black screen and then immediately crash to the desktop, and I am still on Win7,
