LW Will Not Start After Windows 10 Update

Postby pingpong » Sun Oct 01, 2017 12:04 pm

Hi

I've had this same issue happen each time I update Win 10 (I am using the Insiders Program's version of Windows 10 which is updated frequently). After the Windows 10 Update, I cannot open LW and need to validate local cache and re-install LW and all the various mods before I can play again. Is there an easier fix/solution to this (short of buying a new Win 10 license)?

Thank you in advance.

Regards

One of the things the mod does on install is directly change the vanilla .exe (so mods work at all). That can trip all kinds of issues that only a clean install can fix. Not sure that's what is going on in your case, though.

Thanks for your response. I was hoping that this was a common problem and that someone may have addressed it already ...

Thanks anyways and best of luck on your new projects!
