Since I bought and downloaded BF4, I'm unable to play the game. In battlelog I'm promted to download the browser plugin. When I do, I see the download happening and I can execute the downloaded file. Then notting seems to happen. When I try to connect to a server I get the same message again: download the latest browser plugin. I'm starting to get rather annoyed with this. Has anybody a solution for me? I'm trying to run the game on a AMD 8-core 8120, ATI HD7990 (latest drivers) and windows 8.1.

Moved the downloaded file to c: and executed it. Unfortunatelly, no change to the behaviour. The message continues to be: download the latest version of the browser plugin ....

got the same problem, installed win 8.1 today and since then I cannot get the game to load instead getting the prompt to download the plugin. Tried numerous times but only gets so far as the green progress bar running to 100% then nothing.

any help is much appreciated.

Já tentei tudo desde ontem... Iniciei com IE, Firefox e Chrome, não roda... O problema é o Win 8.1, mas não tem como desisntalar sem ter que formatar o PC... INCOMPATIBILIDADE entre o plugin 230.119 e o Win 8.1.

I have tried logging out of BF and origin , uninstalling the plugin and reinstalling and reopening origin and it didnt work

i have tried unisntalling the plugin , rebooting, installing the plugin, then opening origin and it didnt work

i have reintalled BF4 and origin

i have checked for updates

i have tried different version of each Chrome / IE / FireFox - no luck

I have made sure the install is repaired of BF4 in Origin

I have tried running BF4 in 64 and x86

I have also tried EVERYTHING IVE READ on these forums about this issue over the past 40 hours

I have considered suicide

I have made sure my plugins are enabled and always active in all browers

I have made sure bf4 website is on trusted sites on all Chrome / IE / Firefox

I have reinstalled this plugin multiple times over and over in so man various ways with rebooting involved and browsers closed , browsers open - no luck

I have cleaned my browser cache with CCleaner, fixed Registry Errors

I have cleaned my history in all browsers

I have Defragged

I have turned off Firewalls

I have turned off Anti virus

I have turned of Windows Defender

I have opened ports that BF4 uses

I have run EVERY BROWSER / EXE as Administrator

I have refreshed bf4 page multiple times and tried to join a game quickly - no luck

What have i not done? im sure ive missed something ive done.

Funcionou!! No Chrome, mas deu problema na placa de vídeo... Na placa NVidia, DESABILITAR MODO '3D VISION', ou terá imagem dupla (vermelho e azul).

Turning off real time protection in Windows Defender solved this for me.

Such bullshit I bought Windows 8.1 just so this game could run better and now it won't even run. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED WITHOUT DISABLING MY WINDOWS DEFENDER!!!
