I have tried all the suggestions including the Bitraider suggestion. I have win 10 and this just started when swtor the patch was installed on Tuesday Nov 3. Even tried uninstalling and reinstall 4 times, 2 x each using swtor website and 2x using steam. The steam one worked for 1 log in and then once the game was closed, it went back to not launching.

I'm already starting to get seriously frustrated. I just reinstalled the game as well as the graphics card upgrades. There are still no solutions. Does anyone have any solution to offer? As much as I love this game, I'm on the verge of deleting my account.

Hi folks,

Our team is still looking into this issue. I'll update you when I have more information.

For your information, some players on Windows 10 were able to fix the issue by updating their Windows to version 1909.

Don't you mean downgrade to version 1909? Current is 20H2, then 2004, then 1909.

What Radeon setting are U using. Try Setting it to the bare mnimum Standard and in RADEON SW and in the SWTOR Preference check the graphics settting and SET that to LOW if still having problems.

I have a WIN 7 64 Bit PRO , Radeon R7 - 240 . I think the problems are with the Graphics Card settings. Since many have desktop decomposition disabled as helping. SWTOR is working for me now.

Okay, I finally got it to work.
WHat i did was I went into the AMD controll software and forced it to overwrite the AA setting for the game with the simpelst option it had. The game took liek 2 mintues to laod up this time, but it works again.
