Not sure if this was missed in between all the CDN posts.

But the password field does not let us paste into it, this makes it unusable as I have a long and complex password and simply can't type it in every time. All it will lead to is me setting a simpler password with obvious negative side effects.

Launcher did an update this morning, now i get a page cannot be displayed error on the web gui section. The rest is fine. Rested the webgui link in my browers and its fine there.

"he web page at https://launcher.eveonline.com/1.5/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error code: ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED"

Rolled back to the last download of the launcher I have as a temp fix and working

My launcher appears to be stuck today: 10 of 49991 (7.20GB) 0.0%

I'm still able to launch the client, though.

Downloaded file to desktop and launched the installer but keep getting this error.

No Disk - There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk3\DR3

Is there a solution so I can play with this new addition?

There is a bug in downloading the full resource set - it should be fixed in the dev version, will be deployed next week.

Where did you download from? If this came from the download link at the start of this thread https://binaries.eveonline.com/EveLauncher-976381.exe - the file seems to be truncated - try downloading again.

This is not intentional, we´ll look into it.

I was seeing if I could get the new PYFA working, the one that's supposed to interact directly with fits in the server. It failed, and offered to open the console. I did, and saw this:

Over and over.

Its not PYFA related, it happens whenever the Mac Launcher is open. That error message is repeated about 100 times every ten seconds when I have the launcher open.

This is curious - it doesn't come from any launcher code. I'll see if I can reproduce this on my end.

I've been using the Beta since it was made available and so far so good.

The in game browser launches but never loads the page, just a black screen in the browser window. When I try to close the browser, the client freezes and eventually crashes. When I reload the character everything is fine. I can minimize the browser and everything is good and I can continue playing.

Bit of a silly question maybe but is the new launcher a Win32 app?

Whenever I try and install it I get a Windows error message (a please report to Microsoft one). Then if I hit the launcher icon I get a message saying this is not a win32 app.

Mac Version

For some strange reason, the in-game browser does not load any pages when you start it from an instance of EVE started by the BETA launcher.

Additionally, if you then try to close the in-game browser, the game locks-up completely.

This is peculiar, since when starting the game from the old launcher, the in-game browser works properly and you can close it without making the whole game lock-up.

I'm on Mac and I'm running into the same issue. From a security perspective this is terrible, you should encourage your users to use randomly generated strong passwords combined with a password manager and the inability to paste passwords does the exact opposite.

I'm also wondering why no dev has responded to this issue while multiple people reported it. Please let me know if you plan on fixing this.

This turns out to be a known issue in Qt 5.5 - will be fixed in 5.6, which is due in a couple of weeks.

I am very happy that Mac users now have a launcher.

However fixing the launcher for windows is now a priority. I can't even get into game.
