I just reinstalled Windows and of course LOTRO didn't work right, so I reinstalled it, got the Launcher up and running, it installed some required things like DirectX, and now it just sits there like this:

Connect...............................Done
Examine Programs...........Done
Update Programs..............Done
Examine Game Data
Update Game Data
Disconnect

In other words, it updated Programs and it should examine the Game Data, but nothing happens. Do I have to reinstall it yet again?

I would not call myself a gamer, but rather an artist and musician. I enjoy discovering the work of fellow artists and musicians, which is often found in games.
