My launcher wont...launch?

#1Xxthesorrow90xXPosted 1/17/2012 10:37:16 AM

Hey guys I was playing a little bit but then I got booted off and I guess my internet just decided to turn off

but after I got it back on, I tried going back online but my launcher doesn't show up, I tried double clicking it again and then it says "Only a single instance of this application can run"

but yet I dont see a launcher anywhere I tried restarting my computer and the same thing happens.

 

Is there some way I can...fix this ?

They have pills for that. >_>

But seriously, ctrl+alt+del to see if it is indeed running. Kill it if it is. You may also want to try and run LauncherFix, it's in your SWTOR folder somewhere. Run that and see if it fixes it.

A few things you can TRY that MIGHT fix the problem. First go into your task manager click on the tab that says processes. Look for the "launcher.exe" process and end it. Some times it gets stuck at this phase and endin the process and then launching can help.

2 right click the icon go to properties and click on the box that says run this program as an administrator. Sometimes that helps the launcher run better. Don't know why but it does.

3 make sure the game is in the excemption folder/tab for both your fire wall and your anti virus. Despite you having already played for a while they can clash with the launcher connecting to te Internet.

4 if none of this helps there is a thread about this on SWTOR.com forums that has more ideas how to take care of this. Unfortunately this is an on going problem for a lot of people

Happened to me once yesterday after I got booted out too. All Isis once I got the message was reset my laptop and that did the trick. I would assume alt ctrl del would do the same. It probably just thinks the game is still running since u got booted from the game. Like I said tho all I did was reset and all was good
Hope this helps

It's happened to me a few times, even without the application running, even under task manager. Restarting your computer will fix it.

I used to get this a lot but havent had it for a while. For me going into task manager and killing it in the processes tab (not the application one) worked. Occaisionally I needed to stop the relevant host file from the previoulsy crashed swtor.exe (svchost) you can tell which one it was by putting it in order of memory used and picking the highest (assuming you weren't running an even bigger memory hog in the background at the same time)

Note, this probably won't actually stop the svchost process (windows was already dealing with it when it got confused by a new one opening for launcher) but an act of aggression towards it will bring it into line

When this happened to me I redownloaded the launcher from the official website it downloaded a few MB of data and everything has been working fine since.
