Common exit codes

Here’s a short list of common exit codes:

0xC000013A - STATUS_CONTROL_C_EXIT

This usually happens if you close the console window or press CTRL+C.


0xC0000005 - STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION

Usually means that it crashed due to a bug or the game exceeded the allocated budget


0xC0000135 - STATUS_DLL_NOT_FOUND

The OS is unable to load a file that is required to run the game. A missing DLL may belong to the game, the OS or one of the required components (DirectX e.g.).

Please try to:


0xE0000002 - BNGBase::EXIT_ERR_INVALID_ROOT_PATH

The game or launcher could not mount the game path.

Possible solutions:

  • Check the Security Properties of the game folder and check that you have Full control ticked
  • Try to start the game/launcher with Administrator Rights
  • Check the path of the game does have other chars than ascii

0xE0000003 - BNGBase::EXIT_ERR_INVALID_USER_PATH

The game or launcher could not mount the user path.

Possible solutions:

  • Check the Security Properties of the user folder and check that you have Full control ticked
  • Try to start the game/launcher with Administrator Rights

  • Check the startup.ini file in the game folder, if a UserPath is defined there them check it’s still valid

0xE0000004 - BNGBase::EXIT_ERR_USER_PATH_UNWRITABLE

The game is probably blocked by Windows Defender

Possible solutions:

  • Move the user folder to a folder not protected by Controlled folder access. Keep in mind that moving data with the launcher will fail, you need to move the data manually and un-tick Move data. Or
  • Add BeamNG.Drive executables in the Allowed apps. Follow this guide You will need to add those executables :
  • BeamNG.drive.exe
  • Bin64\BeamNG.drive.x64.exe
  • Bin64\BeamNG.drive.x64.ui.exe
