  2. Remove the bin64 in "start in" or "Démarrer dans" as it says on the image.

    The path is correct : "G:\Steam-rF2-Dedi\Bin64\rFactor2 Dedicated.exe" +path="..”

    Open a command window (Win / R / cmd) and try "G:\Steam-rF2-Dedi\Bin64\rFactor2 Dedicated.exe" +path=".." there. It worked for me:

    If it doesn't, you may see a further clue.

    Try this in your target box.... I've just installed a server on a new computer and it didn't want to play ball until I added the extra path info.

    "G:\Steam-rF2-Dedi\Bin64\rFactor2 Dedicated.exe" +path="G:\Steam-rF2-Dedi\”

    So Dear engineers,

    one more time thank you for your support and special thanks to @Akela_DE that found the "mistake" (i´ve made of course)

    It was the 2 " .." (points) having a space........

    With this mistake i lost my last chance to work for Microsoft ......I´m fired ...

    :)

    That's the sort of nearly-invisible mistake that happens all the time when writing software. Multiply by several million and you have the reason Microsoft have to keep releasing updates :( On the other hand, it keeps thousands of software engineers in a job :D
