    what to do if the launcher doesn't load? do it right and it is loaded first and then nothing happens?

    Do you mean the launcher loads but then hitting "Play" doesn't work?

    Hitting play doesn't seem to work for me either. Is this a known bug? It took a ridiculous amount of time to download (twice), otherwise I'd try deleting and reinstalling. Thanks

    Try setting the UO path folder again but going into options in the top left-hand corner, then click browse next to UO and reselect the path where UO was installed (Usually C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Classic). For good measure, you may want to do the same for Razor / Steam / Sallos. Make sure you also have an assist program selected. Avoid, if you can, moving the UOF Launcher location - Choose where you want to put it (e.g. Desktop) and then run it.

    i just searched my computer for UO and fouudn UOS and clicked it and it works now. won't work in the launcher though even when i direct it through options. oh well at least i got it to work. Now to remember what to do in this game, so much to do that i end up over whelmed

    That's odd, if UOS works that means the client is on your machine, so UOF Launcher should work too! Maybe try doing a search on your computer for "client.exe". If you find one, then point the Ultima Online Location to that directory. Then do the same for UO Steam and make sure you have UO Steam selected as your Assist program:
    Don't forget also to run UOF Launcher as Administrator and to keep it in the same location.

    Got a new computer (Windows 8, if it matters) and figured I'd try this route to install.

    Ran the installer as administrator from my desktop. Crashed at like 5%.

    Also: was downloading at like 100kbps, eww.

    [edit: going to restart it and let it go as long as it takes. will report back with results.]

    [edit2: it took forever, but it installed. the "play" button doesn't work though. I can still play by opening UOSteam directly though.]

    Hello everyone, it is been a while I didn't log in. I was about to reinstall everything using the new launcher (build

    As many others, I am having crashes (stack overflows) during download (to me: UltimaOnlineClassic.zip file). I am trying for the Nth time right now as I am writing this post (incredibly it just reached 60%). I am on Windows 8.1 x64.
    (just crashed now at 65% ahah)

    EDIT: if I install Ultima Online Classic (UOClassicSetup_7_0_24_0.exe), patch it, select the folder in the UOFLauncher, make updates, and play - is this correct?

    UPDATE: It works.

    I reinstalled everything just for magincia and to try sallos...

    the launcher works perfectly but unfortunately magincia is still empty for me.... maybe because i updated the client to the lastest version 7.0.44?

    I'm having a problem with the launcher. It starts the download, then anywhere between 15.3m complete to 175m complete, it crashes.
    I'm using Windows 8.1, and haven't had a problem with it before...

    Define "crashes". I just downloaded it and AVG naturally decided it was dangerous and wouldn't let it load until I turned it off for a few minutes. Runs great now, except everytime I start it up it wants to do another update. Small price to pay :)
    Take it from a guy whose working life was tech support for Internet companies. Yes, your computer IS perfect and has no problem. However, your antivirus is TOO perfect, and you need to call it into the office for a little chat.

    I have .net4 and the latest directx already installed.The launcher worked fine back when I first join UO Forever. Now it won't work at all.

    It pops up saying "Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application."

    Anyone know how to fix it?
