Need for Speed 2015 pc don't start

★ Novice

Need for Speed 2015 on pc does not start!
If I hit the play button in Origin, the logo and button is going to be grey for a sec, but nothing happens....
If I take a look in the Task Manager I can see that the process opens up for a few millisecond but than disapears with no effect.
I hope someone can help me there, I'm happy about every answer!Standard smile

Thanks Barry. However, I managed to solve it a few days ago by granting admin rights and removing backwards compatibility, as I explained here:

Same for me, game was working fine until 2 days ago.

 

Trying to play today, won't start.

 

Tried repairing game from origin options, to no avail.

It is possible you guys have some software running at startup that could be causing your issue.

 

Try a clean boot before starting the game and let us know how you get on: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

Thanks for the answers!
I tried to fix the ActivationUI.exe like you said.
But then I looked into my /Core folder and there is no ActivationUI.exe...
Tried to repair the game with origin again, but no ActivationUI.exe....

Is this a donwload bug? Tried to download the game completely new... but again no .exe in the core folder.
Someone can help???

Here is the full path for the activation file, do you see the file there?

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Need for Speed\Core\ActivationUI.exe

 

Is your issue with the most recent NFS game?

It is possible your antivirus or other security software is removing that file. Can you check the quarantine location of your security software for the file, there should be a way to 'whitelist' the file and return it to its original location.

Thanks for the answer. Yes it was my antivirus that said it was a malware and removed it without asking.
So it works fine again!
