LOLPBE > Leage of Legends Public Beta > lol.launcher

The PBE is all contained in the LOLPBE folder so the directory is wherever you unzipped the archive.

I will cross post this if needed:

1. You received the beta invite via email. (All rejoice!)

2. You head to the provided link and create the Public Beta account (Hereafter Public Beta will be referred to as PB)

3. You download the PB zip file.

4. Go to the folder where your browser saves your downloaded files, find the file and extract it.

5. Pick the spot where you want to extract the file. Remember this spot. Example:

a. Right click on the zip file or double click the file.
b. Follow the Wizard instructions.
c. Opt to extract the file 'here' (in the folder where the zip file resides. It will create a sub folder called LOLPBE, /OR/ choose a located to extract the file. (Say C:/LOLPBE)
d. Browse the LOLPBE folder and then the 'League of Legends Public Beta' folder and double click the lol.launcher.exe icon/file
e. Login with the account name and password you provided on the website when you created your PB account
f. Go grab some coffee, make dinner, pay attention to your SO for a change, while the PB client patches. This patch is a 1.5 GB download!! It is installed a full and separate instance of the LoL client. This LoL client will ONLY show the Public Beta server

The PB client does not appear in the Add/Remove Programs in Windows. This tells me that you can basically move the entire folder to any location you desire on your hard drive and run it. (Note, right click the lol.launcher.exe icon and send to Desktop create a shortcut. It will help in the long run)

I hope that helps everyone!

I would like to help out and test out things in the game.
