I too am having a similar issue… Win11 RoG Strix Laptop RTX3080…
@Seotasr (OP) and @BE_COOLS have already provided a good description of the symptoms
Got the laptop back in Oct and out of the box, I installed EVE.
From that day to Dec, it took an average of about 10 tries to get one success per client (took half an hour just to collect daily rewards on 10 accounts)… yes, a pain, but was “playable” once the client was started.
Since this weekend Dec 4th, it took many more attempts to walk through my daily claim… since Tue, I have managed to start only 1 account twice out of 1000’s of attempts (I do not exaggerate). You should be able to confirm this from logs on your side… look for “knicpaw”…
Full disclosure, I tend to keep the OS updated monthly (Win Upd) and check GPU drivers (integrated/discrete) are at the latest. No professional Antivirus at play… uninstalled McAfee after new-PC trial expired, and am using only Win Defender and Win Firewall.
I have attempted almost everything ever suggested on the internet, and to list just a few obvious ones… used Windows and Nvidia apps to force 3080 GPU… turned on/off almost every graphics/performance option, in almost every permutation… attempted suggestion in a report that HDR was a problem… also tried suggestions in thread that “EVE didn’t have permission to access GPU” (paraphrase)… I also attempted the suggestion above of disabling iGPU… un-/re-installed drivers, EVE game client, windows updates…
Q: Why does the exefile.exe start (pid and all), but do NOTHING? The process doesn’t connect to LogLite, doesn’t consume CPU/GPU, doesn’t create a “window”… just starts and does nothing… I don’t have windows tools to dig into truss or threads… it just sits there until killed.
Q: Is there a cmdline (“exefile.exe /args”) I can run (even if w/o SSO tokens or credentials) to force the binary do a minimal “POST” to connect to LogLite as quickly as possible and report what the problem is, or to log to the stdout/stderr/console (if run from CMD window) ?
Q: There used to be a “test-app” (??) which would assess your machines capabilities or test connectivity to see if EVE would run… is there a light-weight hello-eve I could try?
Anything, Anything would be helpful at this point… I have invested a lot of money into EVE already, and a even bought a new laptop (more powerful than my gaming rig) to enjoy the new graphics and content in Uprising … especially while on the road.
I am willing to perform most tests with clear instructions (barring a complete wipe at this point)… including to share screen on Discord (Knicpaw#0694), to try to fix this…
ASIDE: I work in software, and I don’t want to just “luck” into a combination of settings that “works”… I am willing to help put in the time/effort to identify the source of the issue, so a proper resolution can be found, and to have confidence the issue is “solved”.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide,
