2142 won't launch

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
When I click the desktop icon its starts up but doesn't start the game. I tried reinstalling the game and the video driver. I checked Windows Firewall and its listed as an exception. I contacted EA and they have given me a bunch of things to try and nothing works yet.
I don't know what the problem is?

I downloaded using EA Downloader. I have played this game since it came out. I built this new system and had the game running(except for some Punkbuster issues) but then it wouldn't launch at all. I also added the game on Punkbuster and updated the version again. Now I get "an unidentified program is trying to access your computer". I click Allow but nothing.

After starting the game what exactly happens? If it doesn't respond, do you see a process called bf2142.exe running under task manager?
Make sure that you have all of your DirectX files up to date, as problems with the game launching are usually due to that or video driver files missing.

If you have the downloaded version from EA Download Mangaer go into your folder where everything is downloaded and find the auto start icon. This is the icon that you get if you have autoplay enabled and insert the disk.

I've encountered a bug where I have to do this with Crysis (I downloaded this version)

Also make sure that after you reinstall BF2142 that you have deleted all of the folders related to the game in program files as well as my documents.

I have the downloaded version. When I launch the game I get two warnings of "unidentified Program" I click "allow" twice, my pointer shows action but then stops. I tried shutting off User Account Control but I seem to lose my internet connection and the applications won't launch. The game is not appearing in the task manager.
I don't see an autoplay icon in the 2142 folder.

I'm not sure what you want me to do for the last one. Under Program Files/Electronic Arts/Battlefield2142. If I delete that won't I be deleting the game I just downloaded? I did delete the folders under my documents.

I ran DXDIAG and sent it to EA Support. It shows I have DirectX10.

Dont worry this happens to alot of people in 2142 (including me )
In BF2 i know you just delete the folder in my documents but 2142 it doesnt work from memory. Only thing you can really do is go to launch normally, if it doesnt launch ctrl+alt+delete and find BF2142.exe in processes, end it and keep trying till it works.

I know its annoying but its yet another of the random 2142 glitches that seem unfixable.
Also you could just keep try launching it till it does than alt tab out, ctrl, alt delete again and then close the ones that arnt actually working. Most i have ever had running doing that way was 5 and normally its just 2.
