Re: Dragon Age Inquisition won't launch

@miggyseeee From the video and the DAI error (aswhook.dll) in your dxdiag, it looks like you might be using Avast or AVG, these programs are known to cause issues launching the game. Try adding exceptions in your AV program for the game, Origin and the save folder. Alternatively you can temporarily disable AV protection in order to launch the game. Or you could try switching to a different AV program that doesn't have these sorts of issues. Standard smile 
Hope that helps, let us know how you go.

@Niah_Dark thanks! It worked, but it's weird that I have to launch it first on Avast to work even if it's on do not disturb mode already.

Re: Dragon Age Inquisition won't launch

@miggyseeee Avast and AVG have been causing this issue for quite a while now, hence the stickied thread at the top of this board. One of the reasons I refuse to use either program any more, they never fixed the issue.

Glad you got it working, have fun! Standard smile
