Game Crashing on Startup

Game Crashes on startup with an Unhandled Exception:EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0x(lots of zeros and nothing else).
Game config files in Documents folder are completely empty.

If you look through this section, you should see at least a couple of different threads with potential solutions. Note though that there are a few possible causes and each one will require a slightly different approach.

I’ve set DX11 mode, reinstalled the game, updated the GFX card, reinstalled windows, I dont see what else I can do.

The only thing I’ve noticed is that the game generates config files when I launch it and then doesnt write anything to them.

That is ringing some bells, but I don’t remember the details off the top of my head. Definitely seem someone with that exact problem in the past month or so, though, and I think they worked out a solution. I’ll see if I can find it again.
