I assume it has something to do with some program/application that is interfering with the APEX hack prevention system. I have already advised people to disable their Anti-Virus/Firewall and Microsoft Defender, but it has not rectified the problem.
Your not the only individual to encounter this issue. Most other individuals simply un-installed Wolfteam and re-installed Wolfteam using a new up-to-date installer. This resolved the issue for them as it re-downloads all the files again, as one of the original files might have become corrupted therefore causing the error to appear. This might be something you may want to consider.
Maybe you could try deleting the sub-folder named Avital
which is located in the Wolfteam folder. The Path to the location is as follows "C:\AeriaGames\Wolfteam\avital"
. Delete this sub folder and launch Wolfteam again, it should detect that the APEX Protect folder is missing and it should re-download a fresh copy of it.
On a side note, can you please send in a ticket to Action Team
if you have not done so already. That's the only way to make the G.M's aware that a problem exists, and for them to release a patch to resolve the issue.
