Easy Anti-Cheat game security violation detected (#000000D)[LightingService.exe]

★★★★ Newbie

When I attempt to launch Apex I get an error message reading "Game Security Violation (#0000000Dh) [LightingService.exe]." After a few google searches I have found that it most likely is an issue with RGB software. I had ASUS AURA, Corsair iCUE, and Thermaltake RGB Plus all installed. I have now uninstalled those programs and am still getting this Easy Anti-Cheat error message whenever trying to open Apex Legends. I have played battlefield V with no issues, as that is also a game that runs off of Origin. Please help fix this issue.

Hi, @TwitchSymboLs 


Were you able to figure out which program was causing the error message? A clean boot can help identify what programs are causing this because it launches the PC in a state where it's only Windows essential programs.

Easy Anti-Cheat also has technical support if you want to raise this up to them.


These were some of the programs players found conflicts with the game:
