Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Driver Load Error (1072).
Ive been getting this hours today and hours yesterday, im losing my mind and wondering if anyone can help?!?!?!?

ive done every forum suggestion i could find, ive reinstalled battleeye atleast 10 times by deleting the files, clicking play ark, it asking me to reinstall, it does, but then still says Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Driver Load Error (1072).
no google search or any part of the battleeye FAQ helps with this error or has even heard of it.
The FAQ just says update my windows, i did and still same error
Ive even reistalled ark which was a few hours process.
This post is my last hope..... thanks

Make sure you have windows, your graphics drivers, etc all updated to be the current versions.

1072 is usually an error related to system or application errors. Sometimes it can be fixed with updating everything to current but also in some cases its due to some program that was uninstalled poorly that has remnants mucking things up.

You say you updated everything but have you checked your comp to make sure you dont remnant files from an uninstalled application? Check that as well. If you still cant get it working, Go to the official wc website and submit a support ticket. I still thing there's an issue with some program that's corrupted or bugged your system but without knowing your comp its impossible to armchair help in these regards. Best to check with WC's support and see what they can tell you. They'll more than likely get you to submit a full system spec report or suggest other options.

If they then cant help you, you're boned unless you want to completely wipe your hard drive and reinstall everything.
