Hello, every time I start up valheim my game crashes when I try to join a new world and it says “valheim.exe has stopped working”.
Has anyone else had issues with this? I cannot find much because the game in brand new. i also don’t want to refund because it genuinely looks amazing but I cannot play it
This crashing error in Valheim can be pretty annoying, especially if you’re anticipating a great gaming session.
That is only one example of Valheim crashing on start and there is no official fix, but we have a couple of solutions that will solve the problem.
How can I fix the Valheim crashing on startup issue?
1. Run the game as an administrator
If the game is not starting at all, the main problem could be the lack of administrative rights.
So, first of all, make sure that you have full rights on your Windows 10 account that you’re using.
Another simple solution is to right-click the game executable file and select Run as administrator from the menu. You can also check our article on how to fix administrator rights issues on Windows 10.
2. Check your antivirus
Another very common problem for such crushes is the antivirus that might be blocking your game because it sees it like a threat.
An obvious solution for this problem is to check the antivirus settings and allow Valheim to run without restrictions.
Another quick solution is to disable your antivirus temporarily. If the issue is caused by your antivirus, consider changing it with a better antivirus that doesn’t interfere with your important apps.
