I just installed Uru Live on a new computer. After clicking on the icon all I get is the Patcher window opening and then just sitting at: 'Initializing Patcher'. Won't load, update just nothing but the window.

I checked the knowledge base and everything looks good; open firewall window, etc..... I've checked the forums here and nothing shows that the server is down so I'm wondering if anyone has any idea's.

Had no problems running on the old computer, just won't start up on this one.

Are you running it "as Admin"? - If you've installed it in Program Files then that's usually needed. Also, some AV software (e.g. Norton) will need to be explicitly told to "trust" UruLauncher and UruExplorer before they'll work properly.

Yes that was one of the first things I did. Then I went through the different compatibility versions. Boy do I HATE having to break in a new computer! LOL!

Now it's telling me there's a .dll file missing, but I did a command prompt scan and it show's no problems; plus the fact that all the rest of my games work fine makes me think it's on the URU end and not my computer.

Thank you very much Adam. Thought the .dll were missing from my computer since I didn't have this problem when I loaded it last month on my old computer. But it's now loading nicely so you've made my wife very happy.
