Recommended Posts

Hi there any help would be amazing as I have had this trouble for a very long time I have tried everything, new hard drive, another computer, reinstalling the game but the issue is not getting resolved whenever I launch the launcher.exe file from either the game directory or steam itself i get this pop up:


Screen-shot of error


It also leave a dump file on my desktop and i believe it to be an issue with my public key token if you don't want to read through all the jargon but if I launch the Arma 3 only .exe and also the battleye .exe it launches and I can play multiplayer. As we all know the launcher is so much easier especially when playing with mods but I just cannot figure this one out. So please if you can help or have any advise please let me know i shall leave the dump file below if you care to take a look at it:
