When I run the installer, I get a message saying that the files already exist in the destination folder. I have tried disabling my AV and running the installer as an admin, neither of which helped. I also uninstalled/reinstalled Adobe Air, which also didn't help. Please help

Also check your programs by going to My Computer -> Local Disk C -> either Riot Games or Program Files and search from there to delete any existing files

I'm having the same issue as OP and I've installed this game multiple times just fine. And to reply to your recommendation, the program isn't listed there. I'm pretty sure it's an issue with the programming of the download client itself. The temp files that it creates are conflicting with the actual files. That's the only thing that makes sense right now.

RIOT, please fix this a.s.a.p. I'd like to use what I paid for.

Have you ever installed LoL before?

- Delete all traces of LoL Files and folders
- Download CCleaner
- In CCleaner, go to 'Registry' and scan for issues
- Fix all found issues, and be sure to make a backup when asked!

- Try reinstalling
- If it fails, go back into CCleaner, go to 'Tools', select League of Legends and select Uninstall
- If this fails, select League of Legends, select Delete Entry, then try to reinstall.

This is an issue pertaining to the download client, not for the installation of the game. Also, I've already tried wiping out the registry files with CCleaner. LoL is no where on my computer, I made sure of it when I uninstalled it. Thanks for your reply and recommendation though.

If by new launcher you mean the one available off the download page https://signup.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/redownload, then yes.
