  3. LoL won't start up after the launcher...help?
4 years ago#1
Google searching has failed me, and I submitted a support ticket to Riot, but wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

This has never happened before, but all of a sudden, after I double click to start LoL, the laucher pops up. AFter I hit "play"...nothing happens. Task manager says LOLLauncher is running, but not the client or anything else. Anyone know why?

It should be noted that my computer did a random soft system restore yesterday for a fatal Java runtime error, and since then Windows has had to re-download updates and stuff. Could I be missing a crucial file?

Ironaically I don't think it's a java error, since, Minecraft runs fine...

This problem sucks so much. And all the stuff on the official forums did not fix it at all lol. I had to sit on skype with my gf's friend for quite some time fixing this. Even he was stumped lol.

Likely.


Open up your launcher. Don't hit the play button. In the top right there is a button with two gears on it. Click it and use the "repair launcher" function.

It'll take about 10 minutes or less. Then it should work.


Unfortunately, your masteries will be erased.

Try to locate your problem there and try their multiple fixes.
