Mass Effect 1 - Unable to launch game under Windows 7

April 2018


  • I'm unable to launch Mass Effect 1via the launcher under Windows 7, the automatic configuration utility crashes each time:


  • If you're trying to launch Mass effect 1 via the desktop shortcut, this will open up the launcher menu and upon pressing the "Play" this will automatically launch the config utility.
  • The only way around is to launch the game directly (MassEffect.exe)
  • Go to the installation folder : C\ program files \ .. MassEffect\ Binaries
  • Double click on MassEffect.exe
