I have a very similar problem with Windows 7. Execute downloaded file and nothing seems to happen. When I try to join a server, I get the download the plug-in message. When I X-out the message, I see "joining server" on the blue bar but then nothing else happens. Thanks for breaking a problem that was working even though it limped at times. Now, I can't play which is very frustrating even with all the crashes and hit reg problems etc.

Dice/EA: why do you take something that's working and let your efforts to improve it break it? My dentist says I need to stop grinding my teeth. If I have dental problems I'm sending the bill to EA.

I think the browser invent is bad idea. Normal game launcher like in all shooters were good. Why EA chose browser finding games @_@. Big minus for it.

I have Windows 8 as they recommend, 4GB ram memory Graphic Geforce GTX 295 and dual core 3GHz CPU. Unfortunately i can play (if no need that plugins in browser) only in windowed mode. When i play full screen, game crush in fed sec. White screen or graphic crush. Updates drivers didnt work, register cleaners didnt work. Nothing... In plugin topic, i install that @#$%!##@ thing and it's still doesnt work. Pls tell me What i have to do to play normally this game? Vitogames@hotmail.com send to me email with any ideas.

In the address field in chrome, next to the star, I had an icon with a cross and something else. Clicked it and allowed the plugin to run on this site!!

Me too.

Same `error` message.

I`m using Chrome. Updated.

Not I.E.

I found the install location of the download only by pressing "PrintScreen" as the unpacking flashed before my eyes. Then opened that in Paint (paste), then looking to see where the downloaded file went; then I unpacked/ran that and then it did nothing but tell me to go through the cycle again and again and again..

Personally; I think its AMD (Battlefield Paymasters) punishing NVidia graphics card buyers.

Unless you AMD users don`t have the latest GTX 780 and are still having problems??

I got a new top end rig and Win Pro 8.1 with ALL updates for mo-bo and everything.

Its like a loop.

Having the same problem.

Always getting the 'Install PlugIn'-Message, but the PlugIn is installed and activated in the browsers.


Tried three different browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera) -> none works

Tried to disable Windows Defender as advised -> doesn't work

This seems to work for me. Clicking on the cross let's Chrome install the plug-in. Who would have thought since previous plug-ins were installed with no problem!! Many thanks to ehrw !!!!!!

After the same error after error, I rebooted a few times and after finding the install (which zips by if you dont use PRINT-SCREEN so you can find its location. Then ran it and rebooted again; then UPDATED Google Chrome (I use), then rebooted again, then it worked.

That solution should work (FOR FIREFOX USERS):

1. Download plugin.

2. Click the right mouse button on the icon and choose "Run as administrator".

3. You should notice that the file is extracting somewhere into your user directory, which is something like this: C:\Users\your_username\AppData\Local\Temp\Sonarinst.exe

http://oi43.tinypic.com/2lj3hpk.jpg [oi43.tinypic.com]

4. Now, go to that location. If you don't see a folder called AppData under your C:\Users\your_username\ directory,then go to the "Tools -> Folder options" and choose tab called "view". Search for "Show hidden files and folders" and select it. Now click "Apply" or "OK" and you should see a hidden folder called AppData under C:\Users\your_username\

5. So go there to that AppData folder and then choose folder "Local", then "Temp" and search for Sonarinst.exe. Right-click on the icon and choose "Run as administrator".

6. After that close your firefox web brower and run it again.

7. Log into your Battlelog account.

8. Now search for the icon near your navigation window. I mean the window where you put an internet address to enter any website. There should be an icon like on the screenshot. Left-click (left mouse button) on it and choose: "Allow plugin and remember" for both ESN Sonar API and for Battlelog Game Launcher.

9. Do not forget about checking if your game is up to date since today there was a patch for the game - again check the screenshot. At least in Europe. Dunno what about US patch.

I hope it helps! Good luck.
