Meanwhile, if your PC is not compatible with Windows 11 you will get a message with a red cross, indeed.
Selecting Windows UEFI in BIOS
You will need to open BIOS settings. To open BIOS, go to Settings > System > Recovery > Advanced startup > Restart Now. From the “Choose an Option” screen, navigate to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware Settings and then click “Restart”. You will then see the BIOS settings screen. Select Windows UEFI in the OS type option in your BIOS menu. Normally, this option will be set to other OS as older BIOS versions can’t detect Windows 11 properly.

Resetting Secure Boot Keys
This is one of the best workarounds that can fix the VAN 1067 error. Secure Boot Keys helps determine and confirm signatures for different devices and software features on your systems. Secure Boot Keys can be reset from the BIOS for a fresh start very easily. In the BIOS menu find Secure Boot and make sure to enable it, disabling it can cause VAN 1067 error on some systems.

This change gets reverted after executing major updates on some motherboards. In the BIOS menu, you must disable CSM at the earliest to fix VAN 1067 error and for a smooth Valorant playing experience.
There is another culprit that is causing issues for some users. Many people using Discord reported that it is causing VAN 1067 error while playing Valorant. We recommend you close the Discord app and try to launch the game again. By all means, disable autostart for Discord, and then restart your system. The VAN 1067 error must be fixed by now if it was caused by Discord.
Changing the Startup Type

Now, here you can locate the service name called vgc and simply double click on it. Now try to change the startup type to “Automatic” and click to start this service. Don’t forget to save these changes. Now, close all the windows and restart your PC once. hen try to launch that Valorant. Now, you will notice this time it won’t show that previously occurred VAN 1067 error message.
