I Installed F1 2019 in December and everything worked well during weeks... and one day .... the 1008H error !!!!
I have W7 x64 and I had the 1008H error during weeks and finally Following @BarryBL & @PJTierney Post It Works !
i followed the post by @BarryBL page 5 on this topic but unfortunately the links are missing or unavailable but i found the post by @PJTierney with almost all available links for download.
So first I downloaded the Security patch KB3140245 for W7 x64 and then the Microsoft EasyFix 51044.
The both links are available in @PJTierney post here
I tried to manually editing the registry file using regedit but probably i did something bad because it didn't work so i downloaded a file which made the procedure automatically ' TLS12fix.reg ' i found it on another site, here is the link https://www.ryadel.com/en/enable-tls-1-1-1-2-windows-7-8-os-regedit-patch-download/.
At the end of page clicking on this ' Download Registry Patch File to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 (recommended as of 2019.10) '
So I have 3 Files :
1st Install the KBB security Patch, then restart the computer.
2nd Install The Microsoft easy fix ( i restarted the computer a 2nd time i am not sure it needed)
3rd Extract the TLSFix_TLS11-TLS12.zip , click on TLSFix_TLS11-TLS12.reg and accept
After these Steps i launched the game and the 1008H error has disappeared.
I did not make a DMZ or create special things about NAT or disable firewall or disable antivirus or even upgrade to W10 or anything, I just needed the correct files and did the right procedure.
It would be really nice that an admin here creates a simple post in the beginning of the F1 2019 Forum, with available links to download and with the right procedure step by step, something clear, simple and easy to find.
I am sure lots people have abandoned to find a way to solve this problem. I had to read lots pages and posts and test lots things during hours whereas i could have solved the problems in 15mins if it was simple and easy to find 😞
Please Admin Create a New Post With available downloaded link and the simple procedure to make. Thanks for the Others 🙂
