Has anyone found a fix or work around to be able to have Genshin open while Black Desert is running? Up until like a month or two ago I was able to do it as long as I opened them in the correct order (I think it was run genshin then BDO), but now nothing works. Genshin first then BDO results in the "please close mhyprot2" message, and BDO first then Genshin just results in a failure to launch genshin without any messages as to why. I've seen a lot of complaints from others in game with similar problems for other games such as Lost Ark, and even a potential fix that involves modifying game files if the 2nd game you want to run also uses EAC, but haven't been able to find any fix for other incompatible anti-cheats. Seems like EAC is inconveniencing a lot of BDO players. I've noticed a lot less AFK players over recent months in general.

EAC blocks mhyprot2 and if you just google "mhyprot2" you also should think about deinstalling it.

The most disturbing thing I've found about mhyprot2 is, it killes antivirus services.

So untill genshin does not remove mhyprot2 or you find a way to run genshin without it, you can't run both games together!

If you are just afking in one of the two games and thus don´t require the FPS then you *should* be able to run one of the two off a virtual machine and the game you are actively playing in native windows. 

There are many tutorials on how to setup a virtual machine (it´s easy), here is a random one:

EAC and VMs dont like each other very much. I heard it can be possible, but its not a guarantee

Same here, this is realy anoying ! Easy anticheat is blocking Genshin Impact since few months and that's realy stupid! Everybody wants to play another game while being BDO afk, by doing this easy anticheat is ruining BDO's afk experience and people have to close BDO to play another game like Genshin Impact.

I can't understand how BDO can accept this from easy anticheat without saying anything. That makes people leave BDO and less players in the game. Can't beleive how stupid this situation is.

I have make support ticket but BDO' GM said to ask easy anticheat support. I never received any answer from my 3 support tickets.

By the way i preafer to play Genshin than BDO

While this is not the reason for my owning multiple computers it is definitely a side benifit I get to enjoy.

So just for an update, randomly a few days ago I managed to get both BDO and genshin opened and running at the same time without any issue. Enjoyed both games with no problem all day. Exulted in the experience and in finally having that particular problem solved, so I assumed, after the latest BDO update. Haven't been able to replicate it since that day though, despite a great deal of effort. If it worked once there has to be a way I guess, but I can't find it. Didn't use VM or geforce... I just opened BDO Launcher, logged in, and ran genshin while BDO was loading. No errors. Unrelated(probably), started 2 updates and 1 router reset ago- BDO is now also forcing me to do an ipconfig /renew /flushdns /registerdns before launcher will operate normally. Without, I get a "unable to connect to patch server, try scanning files" message. I've scanned several times, doesn't fix it. Think I may need to do a full uninstall/reinstall.
