If all else fails you can at least start client by navigating to and running the following EXE - CCP\EVE\Bin\ExeFile.exe

Hello,

As the new launcher just came in lot of people are having problems, me including!

1.) If you tried to launch client, something failed, error messages AAAAAAAAAH
2.) http://cdn1.eveonline.com/EveOnlineLauncher/release/EVEOnlineLauncher_2_1_539169.exe download the file and execute it.
3.) Make sure you answer NO to the question about where to install the launcher update. Just so you verify that you point it to the actual place you have installed your Eve Online to. I had installed my Eve Online to custom location and the launcher fixer still pointed to C:/Program Files...
4.) After submitting the launcher "fix" in to your current Eve Online install folder, goto that folder.
5.) Launch "eve.exe" from the root folder itself (Make sure on Windows that you Right Click->Run as administrator)
6.) Launcher sorted itself out from here, validating client next and then let me to login.

These steps sorted my problems completely.

!!!REMEMBER DONT USE SHORTCUTS FROM DESKTOP OR FOLDER, START THE eve.exe TO FIX LAUNCHER!!!

Fire away your other problems here I will try to help as it looks like CCP is overloaded currently.

IF ABOVE DOESNT FIX TRY THIS TOO:

The fix in this thread did not help. I attempted to install it using the instructions and it still did not function as intended. I am using the following fix to get in:


***ATTENTION*** -- TEMPORARY FIX

Repair and play.

1) C:\CCP\EVE\repair.exe

1a) If the repairer fails - re-run multiple times until it completes.

2) C:\CCP\EVE\bin\ExeFile.exe

The game should load and let you connect without issue..

DO NOT under any circumstances re-run the patcher or this will break and you will have to do it over again.

-=-=-=-

Note - This took me about 5 minutes for the repairer to run.


IF YOU LOST SETTINGS FOR YOUR CLIENT YOU CAN TRY THIS

Johann Rascali wrote:
For those of you who seem to have lost all of your settings, the AppData folder for EVE seems to have spontaneously changed. Previously my cache and settings were stored in "C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_eve_online_tranquility" and it has now created and populated the folder "C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE\c_progra~1_eveonl~1_tranquility"

Check these folders, and copy/paste your settings folder from the first to the second if they both exist. Don't bother copying the cache, it's gigantic and should be deleted just about constantly anyway.

EDIT: The AppData folder on OSes other than Win7 will be in different places and the folder names will vary depending on your EVE install location.



Edit: Made it a sticky. ISD Ezwal.

I am also getting this, but when I click and drag across the space where the username & password are supposed to be, the following is revealed:

Error -118 when loading url https://login.eveonline.com/oauth/authorize/?client_id=eveLauncherTQ&lang=en&response_type=token&redirect_uri=https://login.eveonline.com/launcher?client_id=eveLauncherTQ&scope=eveClientToken


Anyone know what that means?

I had this issue too. Just run the repair tool, it should fix it. At least it fixed it for me.

Cleared the cache of usernames, and the boxes came back.

It then lets me login, but the [Play] button is greyed out, and the progress bar at the bottom is greyed (as if it were waiting for an update).

I used the "reset launcher settings" link on bottom left ( like the old undock button Lol ) of the EVE Launcher settings, download tab.

Clearing the cached user names worked for me (login boxes appearing the moment the cache was cleared), prior attempts to reset launcher settings did not.

Though did have to restart launcher to get past a greyed out "Play" button.

You guys keep breaking the launcher, i pin it to my start menu each time, but.......... you keep renaming each launcher shortcut with its actual version...... wtf why? now i cant launch it without renaming the shortcut unique path, and NO ONE has put a patch thread for the launcher updates...
