    Failed to start client

    http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=207t846&s=5

    Hello everybody, I'm trying to sort out this error, I just installed the game with the latest C++ libraries, and I'm wondering why it asks me to find the executable file and wondering even more why this pops up.

    Any ideas lads?

    I'm using XP 32x.

    TIA

    Ugh, HappyCloud. That install method causes so many issues that I really wish Turbine would get rid of it.

    I would have to say download the full installer using either Pando Media Booster from this site or Steam.

    Pando's been discontinued, I'm not sure that would help. Steam is definitely the way to go.

    No, it hasn't.

    Go here and try either of the PC downloads and you will see they both still use PMB.

    Ah, I see it's only the regular Pando that shut down, not the media booster.

    Even with the media booster still around though, most people uninstall it as soon as they've got it, which means it's providing no benefits to you and will end up slowing your system down if you leave it on afterwards (as Pando will then use your system to help someone else's download). Steam will still be faster. Someone posted the numbers in the forums last week, though personally I'm too lazy to go dig them up to try to convince someone who doesn't care anyway.

    yea getting rid of that installation and making one anew with PMB.
    Will let you know the outcome, about PMB I agree that people just remove it as soon as DLs end.

    100% agree.

    Get rid of it as soon as you're done with it.
