Launcher won't load

Recommended Posts

This is a weird one.  Played 3 days ago with no problems.  Fired up the game today and the launcher shows up in the taskbar but I can't run it.  It shows the window but it won't maximize.  I have Windows 10 and this started before the newest update so that's not it.  Tried running in Windows 7 compatibility and still the same problem.  Reinstalled Net 7 over the existing one only to get a proxy error so I uninstalled Net 7 completely, restarted the computer and installed it again.  Restarted after new installation and got the launcher running...until the 2nd update and now it's doing it again.  Tried Windows 7 compatibility and still the same problem.  Please note that I currently cannot access the launcher so I can't manipulate anything there. I tried searching the forums but couldn't find this problem.

 

Does anyone have any advice?

 

ETA:  I don't have my game disc here so I can't re-install the game until I get back home in 2 weeks.  Hopefully I can get this fixed without it.

Uninstalled and wiped all traces of Earth and Beyond from the computer, restarted, installed game from website, restarted, installed Net 7, restarted.  Launcher did 2 updates and is still not launching correctly.  This is crazy

Not as wild as you may think, I encountered this behavior when I built the Universal installer. Unfortunately the only fix I found was a reinstallation. It had something to do with permissions on the component that appeared in the task bar and the user access control features but we couldn't isolate exactly what at the time (and we've changed OSes twice since then what with windows upgrades)

If you can give any kind of error message you can try that, alternatively you could try running the executable in compatibility modes to see if it makes any difference to the icon.
