Call of Duty Vanguard is finally out and within the last two weeks, we have seen everything the game has to offer. Along with the amazing features, it has a kit of bugs and glitches. Here is what you can do to solve all the issues in Call of Duty Vanguard –
LAUNCH THE GAME IN SAFE MODE
If you face any kind of errors in launching the game or the game keeps on crashing regularly after launching, simply launch the game in Safe Mode. For this, you do not have to do anything as you will get an automatic prompt to run the game in Safe mode. Just click on Yes to launch the game and see if the issues have been solved.
STOP ANY ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE RUNNING
This is a common reason why Call of Duty Vanguard or any other game does not launch properly or crashes after launching. In 90% of the cases, the antivirus software you have in your system somehow recognises and marks the game files as false positive or malware does not let the game launch normally.
So the best option is to either turn off the antivirus software while playing or add the game files to the exception folder or the whitelist of the antivirus software. This will easily solve the problem.
Follow the below steps to do this –
Go to Windows search, type Virus and Threat Protection and then hit Enter.
Now, go to the Ransomware protection and turn on the Controlled folder access.
Click on Allow an app through Controlled folder access. Next, click on Add an Allowed app.
Make sure to browse all apps and head over to the Call of Duty Vanguard installation folder where you’ve installed the game.
Next, select the game folder and open it. Rename the Vanguard.exe file and click on Open.
Next, do the same steps again for the Vanguard Launcher.exe file and click on Open.
Finally, reboot your PC, and try running the game again to check for the issue.
RUN THE GAME AS AN ADMINISTRATOR
This is one of the most effective solutions when it comes to solving the major crash issues in Call of Duty Vanguard. Make sure to run the game’s .exe file as an administrator to avoid user account control regarding privilege issues. You should also run the Steam client as an administrator on your PC. Here are the steps to do this –
Right-click on the Call of Duty Vanguard exe shortcut file on your PC.
Now, select Properties and click on the Compatibility tab.
Make sure to click on the “Run this program as an administrator” checkbox to checkmark it.
Click on Apply and select OK to save the changes.
Follow the same steps for the Steam Client as well. Doing this can help you fix the crash and launch issues in Call of Duty Vanguard.
UPDATE THE GPU DRIVERS
Having outdated graphics drivers can be a big reason behind Call of Duty Vanguard not starting properly and crashing. Though the graphic drivers install the latest updates automatically, it may happen that sometimes the installation remains pending. And you end up having outdated graphics drivers. To update your graphics drivers, follow the below steps –
Press Windows + X keys to open the Quick Link Menu.
Now, click on Device Manager from the list and Double-click on Display adapters.
Right-click on the dedicated graphics card that you’re using.
Finally, select Update driver and choose Search automatically for drivers.
If there is an update available, the system will automatically download & install it.
Once done, restart the computer to apply changes immediately.
