after a long time i wanted to play the game again, but i cannot start it. I did download the game from this website and not through steam.

when i open the game the following happens:
1. the launcher opens
2. i click "PLAY"
3. some BattleEye Launcher window pops up and says:
* Starting BattleEye Service
* Launching game
4. the BattleEye window closes and the following error message appears:

"The program can't start because is missing from your computer. Try reisntalling the program to fix this problem."

it seems a word is missing between "because" and "is".

i have already reinstalled the game.

i am running windows 8.1 and the specs are fine. i don't think the specs matter here, but i will include them if necessary.

thank you very much in advance for any help

Every time the game, the launcher or the updater fails to launch or crashes or gets an error, log files are created that you can locate in %localappdata% by finding the folder for Survarium.

Once you have those files, submit a ticket here with the details and attach those files:
