[timblegoorn] Launcher download fails

Added by Christian Piontek about 3 years ago. Updated about 3 years ago.



From here:

Whenever I try downloading with the beta launcher it keeps running into errors before it can barely get going causing the download to stop, error "An error has occurred while downloading the necessary installation files. Do you want to try again? And when I try again it downloads maybe 300kb and gives the same error. This essentially makes the open beta access pointless for me.

We need the installation log, in order to determine what is going on. Look for these files:


where %username% is your name of your Windows user and the star represents anything (mostly numbers, should look like this: KCD_Beta_Access_20160907103122.log).

You can use a shortcut: enter %temp% (it's case insensitive) in File Explorer address bar and it should take you directly to system temporary directory, where you would just look for those files.

The log is attached

Unfortunately this log file is not helpful. It just shows that launcher was closed a few minutes after the download had started. We need a log file that was created, when that error was shown.
