I admit, I'm not sure how Hamachi works on Windows, so I won't swear to this, but I think it only works when you actually have the Hamachi client working, so I don't think that's your cause if you already uninstalled it.

I love you!!!

A program I was forced to install by my uni last year had somehow changed IE's proxy settings. I just hadn't noticed when I checked as I assumed the automatic setting was the default for IE.

Realised that the path it was bringing the settings from was my uni web address.. changed it to manual and it now works instantly!

Much thanks .

launcher stuck on updatiing.

tried everything bar throwing the kitchen sink at the coder of this launcher tbh.

the OPs suggestion to untick boxes didnt help as boxes were default unticked. this did not happen during beta which was smoothas ya like. ever since beta closed its remained stuck on launcher doing nothing.

can see why there is proper net rage at this game. im very patient but given up on this installing or getting customer support ..

edit: whilst as i sat here typing my whine its fired up! didnt do anything. therefore i conclude me moaning on a public forum solved my issues!
