I am having this same error. I got a 14 day trial code and I don't want the days to be wasted by an error. Nothing else is even running that would use it.

The antivirus might block the installation (it locks a file that is considered suspicious). Turn off the antivirus and try again.

I had a similar issue, but was able to fix it by uninstalling/reinstalling the BSG launcher.

BSG and the community know about this issue. And nothing has been said by BSG about it. I've been dealing with it for 3 years now. Ill be damned before I turn of my antivirus for a russian based company that, can't fix the damn launcher to download crap properly...

solution found, when pausing and starting download to get it to continue on the last time when reopening the launcher before the download is finished make sure you run the launcher as administrator. worked for me.

!THIS IS THE BUG FIX!!!!! ---------> you have to uninstall any antivirus you have and run BattleState launcher as administrator (by right clicking it) once you do that click install and the install bar will finally move. Had to figure this out by myself cuz BSG is ducking retarded.

I literally can't uninstall my antivirus, it's Windows Security. Turning it off doesn't work.

Krypt--

So I had this issue and when the user action window popped up i just left it alone for maybe 5 mins and the install button reappeared, i hit retry and it started unpacking the game files.

Here's how my friend solved the issue:

Once you get the error, navigate to C:\Battlestate Games\EFT (live)

Inside that directory there was a 0kb file called 'lock'.

My friend deleted the file and the game proceeded to unpack and install.

None of these fixes have worked and I am still having the issue. Is there really no fix over a year later?

its like i have 2 errors did you ever get a 404 error when trying to reinstall the launcher form their website? because i have to use vpn to even install the launcher.
