The Fortnite unrecoverable error message has been wreaking havoc on gamers this past week. Users on Reddit and Twitter have been complaining about an error message that prevents them from playing. The error states “The application encountered an unrecoverable error. Click ‘OK’ to create a memory dump, then please share it on our support site.”
This has been reported to especially hit Windows 7 users hard. Although other users including those who have Windows 11 have been complaining about the issue as well. This has nothing to do with your hardware meeting Fortnite’s system requirements.
Fortnite (Epic) is aware of the issue and it seemingly stems from their anti-cheat software. The anti-cheat software is by Byfron Technologies.
