What is Apex Legends CreateFile failed with 32 error?

Error Code 30005 happens when a player tries to launch the game. Specifically, it is caused by an issue with the Easy Anti-Cheat software which runs in the background. As the name suggests, Easy Anti-Cheat is designed to prevent players from gaining an unfair advantage in the game. So when it isn't working properly, the game simply won't load correctly.

There are a few reasons why there might be an issue with Easy Anti-Cheat:

  • Sys File: The sys file that is located inside the Easy Anti-Cheat folder might be stopping it from creating another file. The creation of this file is necessary as it contains the launch data for the game. So if it can't be created, the game won't launch.
  • Anti-Virus: An over-enthusiastic anti-virus can block Easy Anti-Cheat from doing its job, by preventing it from accessing the internet. If it can't communicate with the game, the game won't launch.
  • Damaged files: If the game files have become corrupted, or some components are missing, this can also trigger this error. Easy Anti-Cheat needs to verify all the game files before the game can launch.
