Hi, I was playing wizard and then I shut the computer down for 5 hours. On return I tried to log into the game and receive the following message each time " Unable to launch game, Please download and run the Wizard101 installer" I have never had this problem and have been playing Wizard since last year. Also tried disabling the firewall, no luck. Also wrote to KI and thought I would ask on the message board while waiting for a response from them. Has anyone had this problem and if so, how did you fix it? Thank you in advance
Did you try what the message said? Download and run the Wizard 101 installer. Perhaps while you were away from the computer, someone in your family accidently logged in and deleted part of W101. Or perhaps one of the key files got corrupt somehow. Reinstall the game first and see what happens.
Hi, Thanks for your replies. I tried the "play" button but no luck. It did play but the same message is still appearing saying "unable to launch wizard101, please download and run wizard launcher" I do not know where the wizard launcher is or how to run it. Can anyone help me on that? Failing that, I may have to reinstall the whole game.
