ERROR CODE 2001

6 posts in this topic

I've been trying to find a solution to this since the patch went live and have found no information regarding the error code "2001" that pops up when attempting to patch the game. When I first tried starting the game I got an error say I needed to do a file repair due to a corrupt file, then the launcher restarted itself and now gives the error code before even hitting "1%" on the download. 

Restarting my computer, checking for Windows updates and reinstalling the launcher all failed to eliminate the error code. I'm about to reinstall the game completely but I'd hate to do it and still get the error code due to the error itself being unrelated to and or not needing a full reinstall of the game itself. 

This is the first time that I've ever seen the "Error Code: 2001"

Error code 2001

This can happen if the client is still running in the background. Please check your system tray or task manager and close the application from there.

  • Check if BDO client is running
  • Check System Tray icon and processes in Task Manager   
  • If BDO client is running, close it in Task Manager with the End Task button.

There is definitely nothing running in the background. Not a single task related to BDO after launcher crashes from error code. Unless there is a process I am unaware of but AFIK, blackdesert64.exe ; coherentUI ; xincode (these aren't the EXACT names of the processes but I'm sure it explains what I mean?) None of these processes are present.

Currently rebooted my system into "Safe Mode with Networking" to minimize the amount of processes being ran in the background and the error code still pops up immediately after attempting to patch the game.

Yeah.. i'm dealing with the same thing. No one seems to respond to my post though. Either way... I tried everything. Ended up uninstalling the game and am now re-downloading the client. This kind of bullshit shouldn't happen... wasting tons of time re-downloading this entire game.

I know how you feel lol. I went ahead and completely uninstalled the game and removed all BDO folders from "My Documents" and so far everything seems to be working just fine. Client is actually downloading the patch, along with the game files themselves. I've still got 8-9 minutes left according to progress bar, so hopefully the game actually launches after that. Nothing else worked, even tried booting up in "safe mode with networking" to avoid any instances of the game or related processes running in the background which was said to be the cause of the "2001" error code and that didn't help. 

Hope you get it working for you too.

It seems to be downloading... but its taking forever. The max speed i'm getting is 1.49 mb/s. Not sure the download will be finished before I head home from work :(.
