Hello everyone,

starting today the english patcher (the LaoTranslation.exe file) stopped working for me.

Whenever I try to open the application it opens for like a second and then closes itself again without any message at all.

I thought it might've been a problem with my antivirus blocking it or maybe a permissions or registry error etc.

I've tried out all the things I know (for example change the permissions and make sure it's an exception in my antivirus) but it still doesn't seem to work.

Can you maybe help me out with this issue?

Kind regards

- Yuijo

I would suggest re-download it before proceeding (also delete all the files of the translater you currently have on the pc)
Ensure to add the patcher folder to firewall and antivirus exceptions (or just to test, disable both and try)
Ensure also to change the properties of LaoTranslation.exe and make it always run as Administrator.

I honestly don't know if it puts out a log file in case of crashes, maybe @Tsurata knows more about that.

ps. for @Tsurata, I think this Thread should belong in a "English Patcher Technical Issue" subforum, or simply have all technical issues "free" without any subforum (to reduce grouping and pages) ;)

I've been doing the things you've told me and now it works again.

I don't really know which specific step solved it but it does work like before.

Thank you very much!

I also have a problem using the english patcher.

Here's what's happens, when I start the exe:
1. The patcher opens and immediately closes
2. the updater starts and also closes immediately
3. the patcher opens again and says he cant find the game.

Here's what I've tried so far:
1. Whitelist in antivirus
2. Run as administrator
3. delete the folder, redownload and try again.
4. Try to find the game manually but when I click on Gameico.ico, it still says, that the game can't be found

halp plss :)

are there any other files on my computer that need to be deleted maybe besides of the one in the LaoTranslator folder?
