Every time I press the play button on the launch screen, the launcher closes but the game never shows up. I've tried all the things Bio-ware suggested. I've even tried some of the stuff other people have suggested to no avail. What should I do?
This has worked for me on several installs:
swtor.exeto your antivirus and firewall whitelists.
- Configure all 3 to run as Administrator and compatibility mode for the next lowest Windows version — i.e., Windows 7 SP1 if you're running Windows 8/8.1. You do this in Properties for the executable.
- Run FixLauncher.
- Run the launcher. Leave it while it updates and restarts itself.
- Login and play!
