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.


This worked for me.

I humbly request loss forgiven, for being afk 20minutes because of this failure.
team refuses to surrender, as its a ranked game.

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/windows-vista/disable-user-account-control-uac-the-easy-way-on-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 repaired files and every time i try and launch nothing happens, when i try and open again it says client is already running. This is really frustrating I have no idea what to do. Please help me riot !!!!


Means the patcher didn't shut down correctly (for the client is already running), start task manager and kill the LolCient (i think it's called)

For the others, easiest way i found was to repair...doens't take long and for some reason fixes it.

Same with me, try to open it and it just doesn't respond. Is there a fix for this yet?

I've tried all options stated above, nothing works.
I've also tried uninstalling and re-installing.
This is exactly what happens: I double click the League icon on my desktop, the League of Legends logo appears for about 2-5 seconds (it varies) and then it disappears and the launcher doesn't open.
