Mass effect andromeda wont launch

★★★★ Novice
Hi guys. Mass effect andromeda dosent launch anymore after latest patch. I've done a clean install of Windows 10' I've installed latest graphic drivers and latest Windows 10 updates. I've done a clean boot' I've changed the location to uk. Still dosent did it. Also I tried going offline mode in origin. I've tried everything. It's an issue with the game and needs a new fix update. It was working fine perfect 3 weeks ago. Any update on a fix????? its Really annoying!!

Its not an issue with the game.  Tens of thousands of players are playing it quite happily.  Post a Dxdiag and we'll take a look ...

I had the same issue after installing Win10 Creators update and when ME:A went to v. 1.07.

 

I managed to solve it by adding proper user privileges to the game executable. Not sure does this help on your case but I think it's worth a shot.

 

Sorry about the Finnish language on the next screenshot:

Thanks @carniska that's a great contribution.

 

Most folks who were encountering this issue have a workaround now, but we're still seeing a small number of folks with similar experiences.

You have some odd errors.  Do you have McAfee installed? The Telemetry errors point of a conflict between Windows Defender and McAfee or some other virus scanner.   you can stop the Windows Defender Service and see if that helps.  Control Panel Services.  Check Device manager as well, there is a device not installed and it cant find a suitable driver.
