FIFA 23 players are encountering an issue lately. In FIFA 23, the error gives a message where it says ‘This software cannot be used at the same time as the game’. The root cause of this error is somewhere in the FIFA 23 Anticheat Service which identifies a problem that might tweak the functioning of FIFA 23 and thus does not allow the user to open the game. Even though the program may be harmless, the error can persist sometimes. Therefore, we have shared some workarounds on how to fix this issue.
FIFA 23 ‘This software cannot be used at the same time as the game’ Error: Fixes & Workarounds
1) Restart your system:
The first thing you need to do is restart your system to make sure that the error is not temporary. If the system has a temporary glitch or bug, after a restart, the error will be gone.
2) Run the game as an administrator:
The second thing you need to do is run the game as an administrator. You can do this by going to the shortcut file of the game or the .exe file of FIFA 23 and right-clicking on it. After that, click on an option that says “Run as administrator”.
3) Turn off “Virtual Machines”:
If you are using Virtual Machines on your Windows PC, then make sure to turn them off before launching the game. This might be the core reason why the Anticheat service isn’t allowing the game to run.
4) Turn off “Hypervisor” feature:
You can also turn off another Windows feature called Hypervisor by going to Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows features on or off > Windows Hypervisor Platform. From here, disable the option and click Ok.
6) Disable Virtualisation-Based Security:
Run the gpedit. msc on your system. Now, go to the Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Device Guard.
