Check for Windows updates

Battlefield 2042 requires Windows version 19041 (May 2020 Update) or newer to run properly on your machine. In order to get rid of the “Please update Windows” alert, you need to update your OS version.

Install Windows 11

If your computer meets the system requirements for running Windows 11, you can jump straight to this OS version. To install Windows 11, download the Update Assistant from Microsoft’s official website and follow the on-screen instructions.

Install the latest graphics driver updates

Windows should automatically install the latest graphics driver version when you check for updates. To make sure you’re running the latest driver version, go to your GPU manufacturer’s website and manually check for updates:

Update your game client
