    You need to provide lot more information if you want some help :)

    First, we don't have your computer specification in your profile and that help, Segundo, how does "it don't work anymore"? Error message, black screen, blue screen, no reaction when clicking, all is gray, crash after clicking, before when you launch the launcher, etc?

    Win7 ultimate, launcher does not open anymore: not for server and not for client, after update - bluescreen, now launcher does not start.

    All other games work fine: project cars, assetto corsa, grid rfactor 1


    rolled back to 32bit, launcher still not opens

    Do you get any error message come up, you might not see it if you run fullscreen.

    There's a known problem with a corrupted 'credentials' file that can stop the launcher from opening. Go to the 'Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\.rFactor' folder and you should find 3 files.

    rfactor.credentials - this is your login info used in the launcher, file is encrypted.
    rfactor.name - this holds your ingame name and nickname, it's just a simple text file.
    rfactor.okay - this is the 'activation' file, it's larger in size than the other two.

    Try removing the credentials file and see if the launcher works, obviously you'll need to login again if it does.

    Also mate there's some type of bug whereby if your windows installation rearranges the order of HD's it can make rF2 think you have changed hardware.
    Cut the .rfactor folder out or rename it and see if it fires up?
    you will need to reactivate it again.

    but some times just a reboot will reorder HD's back to the original order when you 1st installed rF2......

    Double-click on it and strictly nothing happen? Try opening the Task Manager of Windows (CTRL-ALT-DEL) and display it on process in parallel window when executing the launcher. Did you see something happened here ? In Applications Tab it's "rFactor Launcher" and in Process tab it's "Launch rFactor.exe *32".

    Also, in case you have some corrupted file,in properties of "Launch rFactor.exe":
    Size 10,2*Mo (10*736*464 octets)
    On disk (for me): 10,2*Mo (10*739*712 octets)

    I suggest to download and try the demo in a brand new directory, setting core and data at the same place, different than default path (E.g. c:\demo\rFactor2) to see what happen. AFAIK the demo launcher should not check any kind of credentials. If it work, I'll explore again around credentials like suggested above as it's seems a good candidate regarding symptoms.

    B660 works ok for you? I would say something is wrong in your system preventing launcher to start. I don't think this is build related.

    Most people having issues like this are on 10 yr old machines. Upgrade people or you won't be playing any of the new stuff coming out. Problem solved.

    Thanks MJP...After a week of trying everything under the sun, this worked!!!

    but i have another problem - build 798 will not run as a 64bit even though my windows (8.1) is 64bit. when i change to 32bit in the advance tab, it runs fine...you have any ideas about that?
