    It's not work for me :(
    When I open the PROFSAVE_profile, the number after lines 28,29 & 31 are already 1,0,0.
    Then I launch bf4, it crash and make a loud noise, I can't even back to desktop!
    What should I do next? Should I wait for update?

    Move your PROFSAVE_profile to desktop and run the game, it should generate a new file, try then.

    It did not generate a new file

    It's not help too.
    But really thanks for your help anyway.
    I might wait for the update.

    If you give us a little more information we might be able to help. Do you have a PROFSAVE_profile in your documents or not?

    I tried everything that is written, but it didn't work. After a Windows 10 Anniversery Update "Battlefield 4 has stopped working" keeps giving an error.

    "PROFSAVE_profile" file is available. Written I tried, didn't work. I deleted the file, again it didn't work.

    Sorry, my English is not very good. But I hope you understand me.

    Okay, do you know if the game was running in Borderless before you did the update? The issue seems to be with Borderless being run, something you could try is deleting the "PROFSAVE_profile" then repairing the game and running it.

    Thanks for the fex!

    The issue is definitely with borderless, but removing PROFSAVE_profile and repairing the game still doesn't fix the issue.

    I deleted the file, I did repair game but it still didn't work. I was playing the game always in full screen. But now, no way I can't play.

    Why DICE doesn't update to resolve this issue?

    What am I to do now? I can not play the game.

    I've never have had the problem, you guys are. Go into game options, video settings. Set fullscreen to fullscreen, instead of borderless, problem solved.

    I can not enter the game settings. Because "Battlefield 4 has stopped working" it gives an error ..

    Didn't work for me either. Game won't start at all. I just get "Battlefield 4 has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
    Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"

    Which is cute, since updating Windows has caused the problem. :-(

    I guess I'll just have to wait for EA to get their finger out.

    Tried this fix but didn't work, thanks anyway.

    However, found another fix for my launching problem.

    Roll back the Windows Anniversary Update

    Settings>Update & Security>Recovery
    There was an option to uninstall the last update,
    Reboots the PC, then done.

    BF4 is working again..Disabled Windows automatic updates so it doesn't re-install

    Cheers,

    Forn.

    I wasn't aware one could disable Windows 10 updates.
