Anyone knows a fix to this issue?

First I tried using the repair feature from the setup, it didnt worked, then the modify, it didnt worked either, finally I uninstalled it, deleted the setup and downloaded everything again, then during installation, I get an error with the vobank_en_US file and the installation stops unsuccessfully, the riot games folder is created, and is 2,3 gb in size, but the installshield wizard does not recognizes the installing and so I cant even get to the "repair" option.

I already downloaded the vobanks file manually and dumped it where it should go, the launcher is still not starting, all I get is the league of legends logo and it wont go past that, then I deleted the rads folder and it didnt even showed up the launcher logo, then I deleted a lol_launcher folder inside of rads and again, launcher wont go past the logo.

Im really running out of options here, what should I do?

Well at least that pretty much means im not the only one with the issue so it has to be something on riot's side.

Having the same problems. Pretty disappointing considering it was working 100% fine last night.

Here too. A lot of posts about not getting past the logo. I just get a not responding then a force close, check for solution [are none], and details about the kernel_user.exe hanging on the logo.

Well, it seems like you cannot connect to LoL's server. Try using this, if you haven't already opened up your internet to allow the LoL installer process through your firewall.

The link doesnt exists anymore.

And really, this sucks, I emailed Riot support on Friday or Saturday and I still get no answer, despite my previous emails were answered in around a day or 2.

A lot of people have had problems like that, have you tried deleting the LoL_Launcher folder? I had the same problem and that fixed the patcher not opening up, but then I ran into a problem with client not opening so i could log in. so i deleted the lol_air_client folder, everything except for Assets (because thats a 600~MB folder I dont want to redownload that ****.) And now Im having a problem where I cant seem to get to the loading screen, it immediately tells me That i have left the game, and if i close and relogin and everything and try to reconnect, it'll just minimize PVP.net and not open the loading screen, i bring it back up and keep pressing reconnect and nothing, but I dont know if you'll get all the problems I did. but heres where the two folders are located, it shouldnt take too long to fix the patcher, its not a big folder. C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects I dont know what driver or location you put League in, but yeah.

I might actually be able to fix the problem if I delete the assets too, but I really dont have the time to spend re-downloading 600~ MB, my internet on average downloads at 70 kb/s. Thats just a painful experience waiting to happen.

I tried all that, and none of it worked.

The problem is that the game is not even installing properly, I mean, I get an error during installation, at the vobank files, and the installation cuts off, so even if I replace that file, the installation is still incomplete.

I tried deleting all that, and it didnt worked.

I deleted and uninstalled everything and now im downloading it again, hope it works.
