Quick Update

bugs

What’s up?

In a recent update of ours, we realized there is a bug that happens eventually to our users that makes Overwolf not be able to run and gives the error message “Failed To Start Application, Please Contact Support.”

We’re working on a fix for you guys, but until we release a fix, here’s a work-around.

Now this is important - If you don’t do what is listed below, then you will have to uninstall your current version and re-install the new version when we release it. This is because you won’t be able to update your current version since you can’t run Overwolf and auto update it.

For Windows Vista/7/8

1. Close Overwolf.
2. Click the Windows “Start” button.
3. In the “Search” bar type “%localappdata%/Overwolf/Settings” without the quotation marks.
4. Delete the file called “SettingsPageGeneral”

For Windows XP

1. Close Overwolf.
2. Click the Windows “Start” button.
3. Using the “Run”, type “%localappdata%” without the quotation marks.
4. Click the “Local” folder and navigate to the Overwolf folder.
5. Inside the Overwolf folder there is the Settings folder.
6. Delete the file called “SettingsPageGeneral”

We’re very sorry for the trouble and we’ll be releasing a fix as soon as we can!
