I can't get on my subbed account. I didn't have Two-factor enabled, but I got the codes anyways and that part worked....

then i get some BS message "Your browser cookies are disabled, please enable them for the best experience" and i can't continue. i get stuck on the damn launcher, because of something i didn't even turn on.

This REALLY needs to be fixed ASAP.

(and YES, my cookies are enabled in my browser. the damn launcher is just stupid.)

Run the launcher as administrator and report your findings.

Right click -> properties -> compatibility settings -> tick the "run as administrator" checkbox.

Try to login in the EVE account management through the website(=use the browser) once before you login in the launcher. I had the exact same issue and it helped.

My virus software was blocking cookies for some reason (bitdefender). Changing to a different virus software solved my issue. See if there is a 'smart cookie' setting or something and if so - turn it off.
I couldn't figure it out on bitdefender and so installed a new virus software. All went smoothly after this.

That was one of the failures of the launcher when I first tried it after DT. I used the launcher's refresh in the ≡ menu and it worked after that. The other failures were mostly to do with the email taking forever to even get sent and the like.
