C:\Riot Games\LEague of Legends\lol.launcher.exe

This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I keep getting this message after i install LOL. I have reinstalled 3 times now and nothign has changed.

I played on this computer last night, reformatted my computer this morning and was attempting to get back to playing.

I'm not real Tech Saavy so i dont really feel comfortable going into files and changing stuff without some direction, so some help would be cool.

As soon as the LOL program is done installing it has that box you can check and uncheck to "Launch client", everytime i select this nothing happens and when i manually go to start game the message above pops up.

i did look at one of the .txt files in the LOL folder and it reads:

Hi Portugal,

Are you re-installing from the website? Can you please follow this guide to make sure you have a completely clean install?

Yeah just followed the steps in the support page and still after creating another administrator account on computer,failed. Seems as if the problem might be widespread. Like i said LOL was working fine before i reformatted computer.

I'm having the same problem. It looks like the installer got bricked somehow. I'm running Windows XP SP2, 32-bit and have previously installed LOL. I'm actually using the exact same boot disk that I used last time when LOL worked.
