View Full Version : BF3 wont launch from Origin
28th September 2011, 06:55 PM
Anyone else having problems launching the game?
I click bf3 and it says launching and bf3.exe appears in the process manager but nothing happens and after a few seconds it disappears from the process manager.

Happens to me a bit too mate, start up task manager, and you will see an instance still running in the background of the .exe. Either end it, or restart your pc. Hope that helps.

Just had same problem have fixed it for now.
Just posted how to on EA forums:
Note: You will lose any current settings
Navigate to C:\Users\USER\Documents\Battlefield 3 Open Beta\settings
and delete "PROF_SAVE_body"
