Battleye not updating


02-Nov-2018 13:05

When launching the game you get a “Failed to install Battl Eye Service.” / “Battl Eye Service installation failed.” / “Failed to start Battl Eye Service.” / “Battl Eye Service startup failed.” / “Failed to initialize Battl Eye Service: …” error. Please ensure that any security software (anti-virus, etc.) running on your system doesn’t block the BE Service (both BEService.exe/BEService_x64in your game’s “Battl Eye” directory as well as the entire BE Service directory, which is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Battl Eye”) in any way.

You might have to add it to your security software’s exception list.

If that doesn’t help or you don’t use any sort of security software there might be a permission issue with your BE Service directory or the files within it.

To solve this delete the BE Service directory (usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Battl Eye”) and then try to launch your game again.

If you still get the same error at this point please try to manually set the BE Launcher in your game directory (...\Survarium\game\binaries\x86\survarium_battleye_launcher) to run with administrative privileges (normally this should happen automatically).

To do so right-click on the BE Launcher executable, choose “Properties”, go to the “Compatibility” tab, check the “Run this program as an administrator” option and click OK to apply your changes.

If you still can’t get it to work some unknown software running on your system might be blocking BE somehow.
