  1. Hi, This appears if Windows is unable to validate the digital signature of the EAC driver. We recently switched the order in which our binaries are signed, having the newer Extended Validation to be first. Unfortunately this change seems to break compatibility with some Windows 7 versions, so we've reverted it back to the previous order of having the deprecated SHA-1 certificate first in the chain. Sorry for the inconvenience. We've deployed an update that will be live in 10 minutes from now, then starting the game in Steam should work for you. Let me know if you'd still encounter the error after 10 minutes.
  2. Launch Error (StartService failed: 2)

    Hi, We've fixed this incompatibility now and deployed an update. However it will take some time before the new update is released in live, but could you download the new version of the EAC Setup from here: http://sandra.easyanticheat.net/tmp/EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe Run the installer, choose Squad, then after completing press 'Finish' to close the installer and try to start the game from Steam. The issue should be resolved now. Let me know how it goes, thanks!
  3. Launch Error (StartService failed: 2)

    Hi, We've identified this to happen in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build. Something changed internally in how Windows handles Wow64 path redirection, so we will be releasing a fix for this today. I'll let you know today with a download link for a setup that resolves the issue prior the update will go live for everyone.
  4. Launch Error (StartService failed: 2)

    Thanks for you reply! Looking into it now. The reason why Service properties say "system32" is that the EAC Service executable is actually in "syswow64" but filesystem redirection makes that path to still work.

    Hi, Could you try re-installing the EAC service manually from SteamApps\common\Squad\EasyAntiCheat\EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe? In the window's bottom left corner using the 'Repair Service' -button. Does this help? Also try installing the Windows Service Pack 1 for Windows 7.

    @CheesusCrisp, Really sorry to hear that Could you add me in Steam Friends (https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197999579793) to troubleshoot this further? Also could you try starting Squad from Steam, then terminating in Task Manager the Squad game process in about 10sec when it stays stuck? (If killed within 30 sec, if we blocked something crucial it should show an error dialog)
  19. No servers ingame

    Thanks guys! Let me know if any other errors would still pop up!
  20. No servers ingame

    Thanks @suds! Confirmed that the missing servers in browser is caused by EAC blocking a trojan virus' dll (abengine64.dll).
