Yipee fixed it! i had the same prob as poke of doom, so I copied it into the Program Files, and that failed. Then while it was in Program Files, I ran the install and clicked the repair function, and after it was done! Boom it worked! Lol so now I have a riot games outside and inside Program Files. im too afraid too touch anything though

This problem is a bug that emerges when "lol.launcher.exe" tries to write into non-writable files (read only), often happens when it tries to update.
The solution is moving the game directory (X:\Program Files\Riot Games\League of Legends\) out form Program Files in order for the launcher not to need Administrative Privileges for writing data INTO the files.
So for the time being we have the game here: (X:\Riot Games\League of Legends) OR here (X:\League of Legends) -I'd rather chose the first one-
After that we just need to right-click the game folder and head for Properties. Then unselect "read-only" and Accept when asked about applying the proccess to every file.

Sorry for my bad english.

What worked for me was setting the NTFS permissions on the "League of Legends" folder so Users had Modify (one level away from Full Control).

Windows 7, 32 bit, installed to and running from
E:\PF\Riot Games\League of Legends

Windows 7 users, simply Run it as Administrator. The built in Super User that Microsoft implemented into Vista/Windows 7, "Trusted Installed" makes command driven functions, generally, unusable without being ran in administrator mode.

i solved this by turning off the UAC notifications (the message that pops up whenever you run or install a program). in the start menu type in "uac" and then slide the toggle down to "never" worked for me, and i just upgraded from windows xp 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit
