Struggling to kick off PES 2021? Don’t sweat it; we’ve got you covered with some easy fixes:


  • Run as Administrator: Sometimes, PES 2021 just needs a bit more permission to start up properly. Right-click on the game icon and select “Run as Administrator.” No luck? Ensure you’re using an admin account.


  • Check Your Antivirus: Believe it or not, your antivirus might be mistaking PES 2021’s executable for a threat… Try disabling your antivirus briefly or adding the game to its exceptions list. This should help the game launch without a hitch.


  • Update Your Graphics Drivers: An outdated graphics driver can be the silent game-stopper. Updating your driver to the latest version can often clear up any launch issues.



Updating Your Graphics Drivers

Don’t fret; updating your graphics drivers is straightforward:


  • Press Windows + R.


  • Type in “DxDiag” and hit OK.


  • Head to the “Display” tab.


  • Make a note of your video card’s details and the driver version.


  • Visit the manufacturer’s website for the latest driver. If you’re stuck, their support team can help, or reach out to your PC manufacturer if you’re still under warranty.

If everything seems up to date but PES 2021 still won’t start, it’s time to do a quick file check:


  • Open Steam.


  • Right-click PES 2021 in your Library, then select “Properties.”


  • Go to “Local Files” and click “Verify integrity of game cache.”


  • Give Steam a moment to check your game’s files. It may take a few minutes, but it’s often the fix you need.
