My game launcher will not start

Q: My game launcher will not start

Background: Hey guys! I play a free to play game called eurogunz, website is euro-gunz.eu . I have always been able to play this game just fine on my Dell Optiplex with Windows XP. No problems at all since the summer of last year. All you have to do to start the game is start the launcher, then hit start game. Well, recently I have been pressing the start game button and nothing comes up. The launcher will just disappear and my computer screen will just stay normal as if no command was given to it.

What I have tried: Uninstalling recently downloaded programs especially free anti-viruses which could be the cause of this. I have also made an exception in firewall for this game. When I went to my "C" drive and tried putting everything related to avast antivirus, it won't allow me to saying something like I don't have a sufficient disk or something. My friends have told me to uninstall eurogunz and redownload it which I have done numerous times and still does not work. To be honest though, when I go to control panel -> remove programs, eurogunz and avast anti virus isn't there. Is this supposed to be happening?

How you can help: post here to help me !

Preferred Solution: My game launcher will not start

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: My game launcher will not start

ok, im no pro, so this may be a shot in the dark and false hope.

you said that it used to run fine on XP, so what operating system are you using now, vista, windows 7? if so that may be your problem. from what i have seen eurogunz looks as though its a european port of a Japanese game (please do correct me if im wrong), meaning that updating it to windows 7 may be a bit tricky.

also if you are using windows vista or 7 it may be having problems with UAC (user account controls). thats the box that pops up asking for permisions to run a program, but sometimes it just wont pop up, and it wont run the program. if this is the case, type UAC into your start bar search bar, and change it to a lower setting. if that dosent work change it to its lowwest, if that dosent work, put it back to where it was before.

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't
( I would start the launcher, log onto the game and the server, go into the character screen, then cntrl + alt + delete into task manager and right click the process and set the priority to high then go back into the game)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Well one thing is that you can take a screenshot by doing the PrintScreen button for the whole screen or ALT+PrintScreen if you want to get the selected window. Just paste it in MSPaint (or your favorite image program)

As to the issue, has it ever worked? Have you tried Windows compatibility mode?

I tryed playing AC2, it launches the Ubisoft Game Launcher for the DRM. It gets to logging me into the servers, then the PC hangs. Shortly after the PC restarts. I then purchased Splinter Cell: Conviction and the same thing happened, so it must be the launcher is the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled the games and the Launcher. The patch for both games and the Game Launcher updated automaticly. I got the same problem. I installed the games on another PC with no problems. I updated my video card and DirectX drivers with no effect. Please Help!

My DxDiag report is the attached .txt file.

According to "http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/" my PC passes the minimum requirements for both games.

I have always played AC2 without any issues untill now and all other games work fine.

Any other questions, please ask.

Last night, system running fine. Woke this morning to login screen, aka MS sent an update. Boot up but the start menu is stuck. This has happened before, a simple reboot usually fixes this and its good going forward. Not this time, restart it might work but will eventually stop again. Looking at task manager I have Service Host: DCOM Server Process Launcher (6) taking up 26-30% utilization. Boot into safe mode and everything is fine however.

I don't know what was in last nights update but it appears to have really screwed up my system. The only thing I added yesterday was CPUID CPU-Z, I really don't think that is the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

When I start a game of solitare from the program Pretty Good Solitare a dialogue pops up trying to install a DLL for Paperport. I cancel this and all runs fine after that; it doesn't happen until a game is selected from the menu and then only the first time.

I have tried updating the solitare game, no change. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game, no change. I have not done anything to Paperport for quite sometime, other than use it that is.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this and how did you resolve it?

I tried to clean-up my PC a year ago and ever since then I get two error messages every time on start-up.

1. "Error starting Autosync Launcher. Autosync Launcher could not be launched. Please make sure that Autosync Launcher was properly installed and try again". I have no idea what this is. Please help!

2. "AppleSyncNotifier.exe - unable to locate component. This application has failed to start because CoreFoundation.dll was no found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem". I have no idea what this is or how to fix it. Is there a simple way to get CoreFoundation.dll back on the computer? I tried to do it myself online with a free download but nothing seemed to happen as I still get the error message every time on start-up.

Both these error messages have been going on for about a year now so I'm reluctant to do a system restore going back that far as I'm not sure what other programs I might lose that I've loaded up since then. The system I'm using is Windows XP. Any help on either or both of the above would be much appreciated.

Since a few days ago I've tried to start the game - Continuum .38
however, once I click the icon .. the hour glass appears and continues to stay there and never loads
when I hit ALT+CTRL+Delete, to look at the processes I see Continuum .38 multiple times..

Its looks as tho the game tries to start, and something else is hindering it from actually starting up

So in the processes window I see (for example) 3-4 Continuum .38s running at once

I've ran ad-aware, norton anti virus.. I've even done Start>run>regedit ... and deleted all Continuum .38 related files + tried reinstalling it multiple times

Anyone have an idea?

This is the "SubSpace" Continuum.38 version?

Have you looked through SubSpaceDownloads website for any updated files? I see there are a number of them available and might want to check to see if any of these address your problem.

Have you gone through their "Help" page and "SSDL" Forums to see if anyone else had a similar problem and got an answer?

This 1998 online game is still very popular but it's specs are P200 and might not work with it unless you change the compatibility setting. But then it might. There are alot of pre 2000 games that will work under WinXP (like my own game "RUNE") but might have to be tweaked.

Hi there,

I recently reinstalled my OS after contracting a nasty virus which I couldn't seem to shift.

Reinstall went smoothly, but BSODs started occurring when starting streaming video through a web browser. Reading other topics on this forum, I ran Perfmon and noticed that several hardware drivers had not reinstalled correctly. This seemed to fix the problem. However, after downloading a game via Steam (Civilization V) BSOD occurs whenever the game is opened.

I have posted the BSOD file as detailed in another post here:

The current Perfmon report is here:

The obvious culprit would seem to memory, but running memdiag did not throw up any problems.

My system bare essentials are as follows:

Mobo: Asus P8P67 Pro R3 P67
Memory: (3x4GB) CMX12GX3M3A2000C9
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K OEM UNLOCK
Boot Drive (SSD): 120GB CSSD-F120GBGT-BK ForceGT
Other Hard Drives: 2 x 500GB Maxtor 7200RPM (on RAID 1)
PSU: ANTEC 500watt
Video Card: Radeon 3870
OS: Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit (retail)

Yeah, it's a nice system when its working >:-(

I haven't included all the other things you detail in other posts relating to BSODs, as you don't always seem to need them. Would you like me to follow all the instructions detailed here? http://sysnative.com/0x1/BSODpostinstructions.html

Thanks for your time,

I'll try what I can to make this post as detailed as I can but,

I've been meaning to play an specific game; WonderKing by nDoors and I downloaded, installed and so forth.

However when I load the game (Load.exe), it opens Hackshield (Which fully loads), then the game opens up (Flora.EXE)-- It gets to the first loading screen, and then when that loading screen finishes the game crashed instantly. I don't even see the login screen or anything.

My computer specifications are fine, my files are fine, I'm up to date, I've reinstalled numerous times, there's no firewalls or anti virus' blocking it, I'm not banned or suspended, I've played before (Some months ago) so I know I can run it.

What I did manage to catch a glimpse of, though... Is when the game is crashing, if I press Alt+Tab, I see an EXE program in the list, and its name is "WonderkingDbgHelpApplication"-- But I can't open it up or select it or anything.

The main WonderKing folder has "dbghelp.dll" in it, so I deleted it and the launcher created a new one; Still the same error.
I replaced it with an old version I found on google, same error.
So I googled it, and a specific site said that if I have an Error window regarding Dbghelp, my drivers could be out of date; So I updated my drivers, and I still get the same problem. (The WonderkingDbgHelpApplication was never a window anyway, it was only a visual from the Alt+Tab list so it might not have bee... Read more

A:Game Start-up Problem

Read other 7 answers

Hi All
The above problem started a few days ago for no understandable reason.
I'm running XP Pro on an AMD Athlon 2.1Ghz with 768mb ram and an Nvidia GeForce FX5200.
It first started when I tried to run Far cry, a game which I've previously had no problems with. Since then the system BSODs whenever I try to run any game. This doesn't happen when I run any other apps, movies, etc.

Initially thought it could be overheating caused by stuck fan or some such, so I cleaned the PSU, processor fan, etc (plenty of dust bunnies in there!)

Didn't help so I installed the latest gfx card drivers (after first uninstalling older ones). Didn't help either and now I'm running out of ideas

My system is virus, ad and spyware free (thanks to Zone alarm, ad-aware, Giant AntiSpyware and Spybot respectively).
If this helps The BSOD is displaying this message after a crash:
Stop: 0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0x0000007A, 0xF36B7CC8, 0x0000000).

I suspect I could have a dodgy PSU, gfx card or ram but hope this is not the case.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'm currently using Windows Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 (Fully updated, specs below). After installing the drivers and such, I can start games and such, i.e. Counter-Strike. But soon after I join the game, without warning, my pc suddenly turns off. I believe this may have something to do with my gfx card/power supply;

Here are my specs:
650W Zephyr Power Supply
MSI P7N SLI Platinum
Intel Core 2 Duo 775 CPU
WD 750GB 7200 RPM
CoolerMaster Cosmos S Case

Although initially my power supply didn't have enough 8-prong plugs, I got suggestions for a new PS, although I have little to no suspicions about any possible hardware errors.
I'm almost positive that this isn't a software issue, being that I only received my pc yesterday... I've also tried closing nearly every process that could be interfering with my pc, and still nothing. I'm thinking this is a lack of power issue, but I have no real experience with anything power supply related.

Thank you for any help!

In a chat room I go to, there are aviators that you can minipulate. One of the choices (to make the aviator bigger) won't work anymore. I get a window stateing: Load Library(C:\PROGRA~1\VPLACES\GAME\MEG.OCX') failed Get last error returns 0x00000002. Any idea why it worked before and suddenly stopped? I deleted the first installation, rebooted, and reinstalled another Meg.ocx and Regsvr32.exe file.


A:Solved: game won't start

I have found the problem. I was missing a MSVCRT40.dll in windows system folder. Now I wonder why a few of us had the same problem at once and not just myself? Did the server people reconfigure something or did some kind of virus reconfigure something. Will we ever find out?

so everytime i start saints row 3 my computer has a BSOD and restarts. can you tell what is going on from the minidumps?? i dont know if all of the minidumps are from the game, but help is appreciated!! computer stats valid(dot)canardpc(dot)com/show_oc.php?id=2293907 put "." in (dot) i cant post links

A:BSOD after I start a game!

The first three crashes produced and error code 124, this is most often due to a hardware fault, please follow this guide and carry out all the recommended checks.

The fourth minidump has the code 101 which is most probably related to the 124 error and being caused by the same fault.

Let me know how the checks go and then we can decide what to do next.

If you can reproduce the crash a couple of times and then post the minidump file then I may get a better idea of the problem by debugging the minidump myself. Follow this:

First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in Windows Explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. NOTE: If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored in a folder called minidump. The files will have a .dmp extension.

Zip up the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop.

NOTE To zip up a file in Windows (all versions). Right-click the file or folder, click on Send To, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder and save it to your desktop.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Desktop in the left column so you can see the zip file. In the left column click on C: > Windows > Minidump and then drag & drop any additional .dmp files into the zip folder.

Then send the zip file as an attachment in your next post.

This is my first post...I know there are a few threads about the "132 error" but I think mine is more unique. I posted my "dxdiag" in an attachment. I just upgraded everything on my computer, new RAM, Memory, video cards, new cooling fan and hardrive. It's pretty much a new computer. I'm confused on why when I installed WoW and it says everything is installed and working fine the game will not startup. I get the cynical "132" error. The game doesnt even load or start.

I have the latest directx is there any other problems that I have that I may have overlooked..Possibly a forgotten driver..

Please help it is very much appreciated.

EDIT: " Display Tab 1: The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer. Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer."
I overlooked that in my dxdiag...How can I fix this..I'm very newb when it comes to drivers.
Supposedly I need a new graphic or video card. meh.

A:WoW. error#132, game won't start up.

What kind of video card is it? I didn't see it listed in the DXDIAG.
