After everything that went down yesterday, it says I'm patched and up-to-date (AFAIK); but after typing in my name and password and selecting my world, it pops up a file-browse window with the title "Where is the game client executable?". So I select lotroclient.exe; and it bombs out with a "Client failed to start" and then a huge string that I'm assuming is the arguments it passes to the client.
I've tried searching and figuring it out, but none of the other "client problems" I've been able to find match, or even mention the "Where is the game" window. I'm running Windows XP, and am the administrator; so it's not a "permissions issue". I previously had the "Happy Cloud" version installed, so I pulled it all/wiped it all; and reinstalled from an original game disk copy and upgraded, and still the exact same error.
Oddly enough, I have two other computers with the Happy Cloud version installed; and both updated and run fine (They're both Windows 7 though). So I'm really at a loss as to what's going on here, and can't find mention of anything similar.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Blessings and best wishes,
