With the Windows 11 rollout, VALORANT players are facing issues prohibiting them from playing the game. The connection error they encounter is called “Error Code VAN 1067,” which asks users to quit the client, and even if they restart it, the problem still exists. This error appears because Valorant needs to establish a secure and stable connection to run properly, and failing to do so gives VAN and VAL errors.
What is causing Error Code VAN 1067 in VALORANT?
Windows 11 comes with enabled Secure Boot and TPM 2.0, but if one of them is disabled, VALORANT will display the Error Code VAN 1067. Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology is designed to provide security-related functions. Thus, you will have to first turn them on and then try restarting the game, and the steps to enable Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 are listed below.
How to fix VALORANT Error Code VAN 1067?
First, you need to check whether your device will be able to run VALORANT on Windows 11 or not. You can do it by checking if TPM 2.0 is available on your PC or not. You can do this by following either of these methods.
Using the Windows Security App
- First, you need to go to the settings of your PC, then go to Update & Security > Windows Security > Device Security.
- Then, select the Security Processor Details option under Security Processor and verify that your specification version is 2.0. If it is less than 2.0, your device does not meet the requirements to run the game on Windows 11.
Use the Microsoft Management Console
- Press [Windows Key] + R on your keyboard and enter “tpm.msc.”
- Click the Ok button, and if you see a message saying “Compatible TPM cannot be found,” TPM 2.0 might be disabled on your PC.
How to enable TPM 2.0
You need to follow the following steps in order to enable the TPM 2.0:
- You can access these settings by going to the Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Restart Now.
- Then, head to Troubleshoot > Advanced options > UEFI Firmware Settings > Restart.
- You should be in the BIOS setting right now; then go to the Security tab.
- Under the Security tab, change the TPM state, select Enabled, and press Enter.
- Restart your PC as the problem should be solved by now; however, try enabling the Secure boot if the problem persists.
How to enable Secure Boot
You can enable Secure Boot by following these steps:
- Go to the BIOS settings of your PC by following the same steps mentioned above.
- Then, go to the security tab and look for the “Secure Boot” option. Enable it and restart the PC.
If the problem persists, you may need to revert to Windows 10 by selecting the Recovery Options in the System Settings menu and going back to an earlier build when prompted or contact Riot Support.
