This might help ppl with Launcher problems

I recently changed some settings on the launcher window inside the little 'E' button > settings. I think I ticked 'download everything' and 'Enable hardware rendering'. The launcher then restarted and I got a error box from windows telling me the Eve Launcher program has encountered a problem and needs to close. I tried everything, restarted PC, ran it as administrator, I even phoned my mom a couple of times.

Then as a last resort, as I thought it would change nothing, I ran the compatibility manager(Windows 7) and told it to run as admin and use WinXP service pack 3. And the launcher started right up. This may help some people or maybe I'm just r.e.t.a.r.d.e.d. and confused.

Sig - I don't have a real sig but my buddy, who's dad is in the army, always said "pain is weakness leaving the body"
