My BFME does not start. I have tried a number of different installations (CD install, the online download), a number of different patches (1.03, 1.06), creating the Options.ini file from scratch, and compatibility mode, but the game only starts the first time. The next time I try to run it, I see the process in the Task Manager Processes tab, the CPU utilization goes to 100%, but there is no splash screen, and the game never starts. Also, I don't see an active task under the Applications tab of the Task Manager.
Here are some screenshots of what the task manager looks like when I run the game:
I'm running this on Windows 7 64-bit.
Any idea what the issue could be?
