Game automatically double starts and then kicks me out when I start playing.

  • Have a weird problem I don't recall seeing here before. This problem only started after a recent Microsoft 10 update.

    I click on my shortcut and the start screen comes up normally, but as soon as it does it makes the start up tone again. If I get out of the game, there are 2 shortcut icons on the taskbar. If I play a game it will seem to load normally but will kick me out shortly afterwards. For example, started, pulled up the map to see my position, and when I hit the X to close the map the game closed down and I was back in my windows startup with the 2 icons on the taskbar. Never had this problem before the update a week ago. Cannot figure out why I have another icon and how to get rid of it, (There is only one shortcut icon on my screen, the second one shows up automatically.)

  • It is possible that "You" are double Clicking the Icon twice.

    Try a Right Click - and choose Open.

    Also - You could try the icon that is in the Games Directory - instead on the icon on the Desktop!

    I have never known this Game too Run-Twice - but I have done it with "Arma 3" and the game doesn't crash but runs extremely slow!

    EDIT Post : I just tried it, SOWGB can be Started Twice at the same time.
    I didn't test it, Only started another game while loading the first one.

    The only true logic is that, there is no true logic!

  • Just played tonight and it worked OK. Don't think I was doing anything different (like double clicking) after all of the years I've been playing it, but maybe I did... I'll see what happens in the future and keep your suggestions in mind.


    Thanks for your help. I've never been disappointed when I've had to turn to you for assistance.
