    Hi im quite new to rfactor 2. I have tried to update to B770 and have done successfully, but when I try and click to go to the race I keep getting a gmotor 2 error in a blank box when in trying to run x64. I have renamed the two files needed for x64 and still not worked and tried a complete fresh install on to a different hard drive but still nothing worked.
    In x32 it works fine but x64 not working. Can anyone help me please as I would like to try it in x64, and this has been driving me crazy for the last 2 days now.
    This is the first problem that I have had in the last year of owning it, and only just renewed my licence.

    Did you tried launching it as Administrator (right click=>Run as Administrator)?

    It's not a good idea, IMO, to install rF2 in the default proposed folder, as Admin right are needed for certain things. So I suggest, at least for testing purpose, to install it E.g. "c:\Games\rFactor2".

    I tried running it as admin and originally I had it installed in the default path.
    Runs completely fine in 32 bit was running it on Sunday but 64 bit still not working.

    I don't think so.
    To be honest I don't know what it is.

    Then you are not :D It's for seperate angles when using tripple screens, I just get the exact same error ONLY when it's ticked ON in graphics config. AND using the 64bit .exe

    I have now waited for the latest update to see if it fixed the problem and it hasn't. Got the same error. and now that it automatically runs 64bit I don't know how to change it back as I have signed up to races.
    This is beyond a joke as no one seems to be able to help.
    I also got this error too this time

    In the launcher, at top, the advanced tab on the right. You should find a checkbox to tell launcher to use 32 bit.

    I have found that thank you but I would like to know why I can't use 64bit as I know my computer is 64bit and runs other games as 64bit but can't run rfactor 2

    Are you running fraps in the background? I had the same problem, albeit with a different error message, then noticed another post saying fraps was causing problems, so turned it off and now it works fine.

    Annoying as it is I wouldn't worry about it too much as there shouldn't be too much difference between them unless you're desperate to run large fields and/or high settings. It's like everytime there's a new build you always get people claiming their FPS has doubled/halved/no change etc.

    I've given up with this one I have tried all that has been suggested.

    I do run quite large fields due to club and league races so would have been handy
