Disable integrated graphics

Make sure that you are not running the game on your integrated graphics on your CPU instead of your discrete GPU. Because then you are just leaving all that performance on the table. Don’t feel dumb because you will be surprised how many people accidentally try to play games on their integrated graphics. We recommend disabling your integrated graphics via the BIOS settings prior to launching the game. For more information on accessing your BIOS, please see your laptop/motherboard manufacturer manual.

NVIDIA GPU

  • Open the NVIDIA Control Panel. You can do this by right-clicking on your desktop.
  • Click the small + icon next to 3D Settings.

  • Under the Preferred graphics option, choose High-performance NVIDIA processor.

AMD GPU

  • Open Radeon Settings. You can do this by right-clicking on your desktop
  • Go to the Preferences and select Additional Settings
  • Go to the Power and head over to Switchable Graphics Application Settings
  • Select Lawn Mowing Simulator
  • Under the Graphics Settings, select the “High-Performance” profile

Turn off your anti-virus

Turn off your anti-virus programs. Sometimes, these pesky programs will think of your game as a virus and won’t allow you to open them. You can also add the game to your exclusion list of both your firewall and the anti-virus software. We recommend users add all of the following files and folders to the Anti-virus and Firewall exclusion list to prevent this issue.

Game.exe Default Location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Lawn Mowing Simulator

Steam.exe Default Location:

 C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam

Steam AppData Default Location:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Steam

Run the game as Administrator

Some users can get the game running properly by running Steam.exe in administrator mode. This can be done by right-clicking on the .exe file and selecting Run as administrator. In addition to this, try running the game’s .exe file in administrator mode as well.

Now you can play

Hopefully, all these steps have allowed you to launch the game and finally play it to your heart’s desire. Let us know in the comments below if this guide helped you to fix the Lawn Mowing Simulator launch issue. You can check out our other guides related to the game here:
