After the very recent reboot of the ToFN server my launcher now gets stuck on "Initializing" and then "This application has encountered an unspecified error. Please try this patch again."

Hi Endusima,

If the launcher is stuck trying to update, then running the repair utility should help to sort it out. Take the steps in this post to run this:

It might be worth just trying a computer restart as a first step, though, if this is just a minor hiccup.

Hi Jedaii,

Can I check if you tried the linked solution? Also, if you haven't tried it already, a computer restart can help.

My launcher is stuck at 97.99%, and will not complete the update. I have tried running the launcher repair utility multiple times, along with multiple reboots. I also tried deleting my BitRaider folder, as was suggested to me in another thread, which caused an unspecified error (which has now gone away, and it is back to hanging at 97.99%).

I haven't encountered a problem like this with launcher before, and I am hoping a solution comes soon. As I'm sure you can understand, I'm not keen on paying for something I cannot play.

You have tried disabling your antivirus ?

Normally a simple reboot of the computer removes the issue the OP has.
