Okay, so I tried playing LoL today. And it dosent work. I press the icon and the logo shows for a second or two, then closes, and the launcher does not open.

I tried to redownload the game, and it still did not work. Is it the patch? My files?
How can you fix this? Or do I need to just wait for the next patch?

Hey Guys!

Thank you for bringing this issue to the Help and Support Forum! Double-clicking League of Legends and then having having nothing occur can really cause you to sit there scratching your head wondering: "wat"

Fortunately, this problem is most often caused by a failed self-patch of the patcher. Although we are working to resolve this issue there are a few known workarounds:

The first and most common solution is to force the patcher to repatch itself. You can do this by deleting this folder:
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_launcher
If you chose a custom install path, the folder may be in a different location.

Many players also fixed this problem by disabling the UAC(Windows Vista and Win7 Only)
Here is a short guide to disabling the UAC: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...windows-vista/
- Be sure to use the "Never notify me when:" setting

Yet, if your Launcher still does not...launch, correctly, then please do not hesitate to let us know by submitting a new Support Ticket* so we may work with you one-on-one until arriving at a Full Resolution!

* Keep in mind that this advice was given based upon the information provided. If you would appreciate a further one-on-one interaction to solve this issue, make sure to send us a Support Ticket! You can send one from here: https://support.leagueoflegends.com/tickets/new Also, if you could please provide a link to this forum thread in the new ticket, it would be incredibly helpful!

I tried the first given above. It opened my launcher, but I am now waiting for it to start downloading the patch! We'll see how it turns out, thanks.
