F1 2019 won't start / launch *(Solved)*


manolavelle

Recommended Posts

Bought the game on Steam yesterday and been trying to get it work since.

When I click launch game nothing happens (both on dx11 and dx12).

Tried reinstalling, verifying files, firewall exception, running as admin etc but to no avail.

My specs are:

Win 10

Ryzen 2600x

gtx 1660 6GB

16gb ddr4 3200mhz

All updated to latest drivers.

I'm reading posts some nvidia users are having issues with 445.75 so will try 442.74

Ops....my ad blocker was on....

 the same, I followed the instructions but does't work

 

I'm guessing you might be on Nvidia and also with the latest drivers (445.75).

Uninstall the 445.75 drivers and download 442.74 instead: https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/158759/en-us

Also let me know any information that could be useful if this does not fix it.

i have same issue with my f1 2019, it can't start


but the difference is, i can play the game before, after i shut down the PC last night and then turn it on again in this morning, start from steam and then files f1 2019 dx12 (if i not wrong) is gone..
tried validate games from steam many times has no effect it still gone.

my pc specs, just in case
i5 8600k
nvidia 1070ti version 445.75

2x8gb RAM

I've got the 440.97 version....should I upgrade?

 

Unlikely it's the issue alone, there is no need to update the drivers unless you are troubleshooting (or prompted to update by the game).

But yes, manolavelle is correct, just don't go to 445.75 (or 445.78).

If you HAVE launched the game before, try deleting the hardware_settings_config.xml. Also check you have not enabled 'Protected Folder Access' in Windows Security.
