Solution to Fifa 13 not starting on the pc

Solution to Fifa 13 crash

I recently ran in to a problem with fifa 13. A customers was not able to start the game, when he started it would just show a Messi screen and then would crash without an error. I tried many different solutions. a lot of them are posted here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/FIFA-13/SOLUTION-FIFA-13-won-t-start-or-crashes-PC/td-p/1091986 I tried them all but none of them seemed to work.

now for the solution that worked for me.

  1. disable your internet connection
  2. browse to the fifa13 folder in my documents
  3. remove instance0, fifasetup and buttonDataSetup
  4. Start fifa13

when I deleted these 3 files I could start the game again.
