How to Check & Fix if EAC is Installed or Not

  • Now copy and paste the following command:
    • bcdedit -set NOINTEGRITYCHECKS OFF

Check if the EAC is working for your game now. If not, then we will try to install EAC directly from the game folder.

Also, we have noticed that sometimes players get an error in cmd saying “The boot configuration data store could not be opened”. If you are getting the error, then it means the cmd was not opened in administrator mode. It also helps if your user account has administrator privileges. Once done, try the following steps:

  • Open cmd and run as Administrator
  • Now copy and paste the following command:
    • bcdedit /set testsigning on
