If you are also experiencing the Enshrouded game creation failed error, you are in the right place. Not being able to play a game easily is certainly a very frustrating feeling but, fortunately, there are solutions you can adopt to resolve the problem (and others). In this article, therefore, we will explain everything you need to know in case you have to deal with this type of error.
How to Fix Enshrouded Game Creation Failed Error
The Enshrouded game creation failed error is quite unique because it seems to have to do with the permissions of the host server, so that's what needs to be fixed and not who is trying to join the session. Below, there are some fixes you can try to try to resolve this issue, but remember that they work for dedicated servers or small sessions; for larger sessions, it seems that there are still problems and that there is no real solution that can be tried.
Run the Game as an Administrator
The first fix you can try to resolve the Enshrouded game creation failed error is to run the game as an administrator. This applies both to whoever is the host and to those who want to join the session. If you don't know how to run the game as an administrator, don't worry; we'll take care of it. Know, however, that, fortunately, it is nothing difficult; all you have to do is follow these steps:
- Right-click on the game
- Manage > Browse local files
- Right-click on enshrouded.exe > Properties
- Compatibility > Check off the box that says “Run this program as an administrator”
- Apply > Close
Now, all you have to do is launch the game again and see if this option works. In the case of many users, this simple solution was enough to solve the problem but if this is not the case for you, you can try other fixes that can help you resolve the Enshrouded game creation failed error.
The Server Host Has to Launch the Enshrouded Dedicated Server .Exe Directly
Apparently, if you decide to launch the Enshrouded Dedicated Server tool via a shortcut, it can create permission problems. Consequently, to prevent this from happening, the server or session host will have to start the server tool directly from its file. Follow the steps below to find out how:
- Right-click on the game Dedicated Server
- Manage > Browse local files
At this point, all you have to do is click on the .exe file and see if you were able to solve this problem. If not, we have yet another solution that you can try to ensure that you no longer have to deal with the Enshrouded game creation failed error.
Use a Basic Password
Another thing we've seen that seems to solve the problem for many users is to use a password the first time a server is started. Furthermore, be careful what type of password you are going to use. Many have encountered problems if they used complicated passwords with particular characters, but it seems that they have managed to solve the problem by using simpler passwords. Obviously, this is a fix to be done currently, but as soon as things are fixed, you can use the password you like best.
