To start, what are your system specs? 

Okay doing some quick research:

  • Due to an error that may lead to losing data, the rtworkq.dll file is inaccessible or damaged. Try reinstalling the application.(In this case that's Win10 and obviously isn't ideal)
  • Your antivirus software may have blocked the rtworkq.dll file's access. Check the files quarantined by the antivirus software.
  • The Windows registry’s database is damaged. With the help of Windows System Restore, you can return to a previous state with system settings that still work.

Looks like the .dll or other .dll's that are loaded with this file are somehow corrupt, maybe due to a virus or malware, or maybe a hardware failure, like the HDD/SSD is having corruption issues, as well as any anti-virus software could be having issues with it.

this is suggested as a best first step;

To solve the rtworkq.dll file's problems, check if the system files are intact as a first step.

System File Checker (SFC.exe) is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash.

To scan all system files, open a command prompt as an administrator and type:

sfc /scannow

This command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder at System32\dllcache.


Let me know if this gets you any closer to fixing the issue, It is not likely due to Squad Itself.


Cheers, best of luck friend.
