This all happened after the update. I finally got the launcher to work and now my game wont download. I wait for over an hour for the download to finish only for this to pop up. I've tried downloading 8 times now. Please help, someone.

Oh I gave this a try. I've looked all over for this and even had my friend try and help me out. I really don't know what to do at this point and I'm looking for a refund at this point. It takes ages for any of the Devs to help with anything.

Sorry, the expression is wrong, it try to reinstall Windows or Try using the latest version of the installation-free zip (tarkov)

If you still need help with this issue you can add me on discord - we screen share and diagnose/fix.

 

i think i have found the isseu even if i use the client download when i move it to my game folder it tells me the temp folder is full so i gues that woud be the problem, i have changed my temp file location to a open drive and now it wants to move the files to my game folder so i think that woud be the problem for @Chiefwarmhands to so if your windows drive is full i reccomend using this 

yt tutorial to move the temp and tmp file location i think the prob woud be the same for use so give it a try

You don't want to change the temp locations for your os for one game. Will cause issues down the path.

If you don't like EFT temp directory you can change it via launcher.

Looks like no resolution still? Just bought the game and I can't play it. Ugh.

Hi chanvyx,

 

I can recommend you two things:

 

1. I had similar issue which i resolved by having both launcher and game installed on same location, check that as it might help you.

 

2. Raise a ticket through launcher with BSG and or at Forum Support section so tech guy can assist you.

 

Kind regars,

Sivisoko

I was struggling with this issue for a few days. Tried everything except re-installing windows, because well...duck that. But then I found this post, changed the temp file location like the video said and it worked. I changed it to just a folder on my desktop and it worked fine. Oh, and I also launched as an administrator. Hope this helps someone looking for confirmation!

So ...

I have been getting annoyed at this for about 30 hours.

Basically PC ran with no issues. EFT was installed from a previous build as well as all other software.

I uninstalled eft and reinstalled and got the above error. Check sum does not match ect

I tried all the fixes mentioned including a fresh install from a second pc.

Still same Issues.

I ran CMD in admin to check SFC and dsim repairs. (there was corrupt system files that could not be repaired which is odd.)

(i keep my system in a maintained state)

I repaired those and was way harder than it should of been due to repair Iso getting corrupt. Not being able to correct it self using online files again due to them not matching.

I fresh installed windows. SAME issues on a fresh install.

Repaired using a clean iso from another PC.

EFT still wont install with the error check sun ect.

Steam works fine. installs no issues.

I am stumped here and panicking thinking WTF is happening.

Run down the tests. CPU, HDD check ssd scans all come back good.

I ran a memtest86 as a hail-mary as honestly i had no where else to check.

Turns out my ram isnt on QVL and runs xmp 3600 with an error in test 13 (1 error) the values returned as different.

So I stepped back my 3600mhz speed in bios to 3466 (the next step down)

Ran windows. Booted launcher 

Installs no issues.

I know this may be very situational but I am putting it out there. Even if it helps one of you guys with this issue.

Then this post is worth it. Good luck :)

Check your ram with memtest86 :)
