PROCON won't start if PC restarted or session closed

I'm new to all of this so please excuse me.

I also read all the related forums and found no similar problem.


I installed a new BF4 server and managed to upload the plugins via FTP and configure everything, server working fine... nevertheless, if I close the PROCON program (I already marked the close/minimize to tray options) or restart the PC next day, when I try to enter again it always crashes and shows the message "a problem has caused Procon Frostbite to stop"


The only solution is to delete the whole folder and to re-download the PROCON and make it think it's a first time... reconfigure all the options and connections... does not matter if I disconnect before closing or change the Procon location folder... closing means crashing and "re-installing"




Any hints about the cause and steps for solution?


I have Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bits


Thanks in advance

2. Where do you have the procon directory?

C:\procon? If not put it there, give the user rights to the directory if they dont have it.


3. have you tried not deleteing the config files?

eg move the configs to another directory, clear out and reinstall, copy the configs back

Does it crash on start?


4. If the above crashed

Start again - add a plugin. copy the config files to another directory, restart - did it crash ?

if not, add another plugin,copy the config files to another directory, restart - did it crash ?


etc etc.

  • Our picks

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.

      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.

      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.

      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.

      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.

      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.

      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.

      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 

      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.

      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.

      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month

      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.

      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
