Hi,

Is there any way to transfer my LoL install from one of my computers to another without having to download again?

I looked in my program files folder and it doesn't seem to be a normal setup like say WoW or whatever.

Any help is much appreciated.

You can the game is ''portable''
But make sure you google : adobe air and install it, or it wont work.

What happened was :

When you download the game, it installs in the path where you download to. so look there

I dont think it will work. I tried to give my LoL a friend of me because he has very slow internet speed. It didnt work just to copy the folder in the same path.
If you have 1337 skills with keywords ( regedit) you maybe can make it work.

I have looked in the install directory and could not see a LoL exe. Which is where i would have told it to DL. Pretty sure when it first downloaded the installer i pointed it at the desktop then installed to Program files and deleted the DL'd content.

I am asking if anyone has done this and what the process is to get the install on an externall HDD and then to get it on to another machine so it works as if i had downloaded it.

this makes no sense, there are no registry entry's.

I already gave the anwser and it works,

if you dont know where you installed lol - right click the shortcut and click on open path/ find destination.

Once you do that, you have found the lol install directory - copy the entire map/folder and done.

But as I said, you need to manualy install adobe air or it wont work ( sine adobe air is installed via lol installer)

Do not listen to these people who obv. know nothing about computers.


example

for me, its very messy - I have about 5 clients installed at the same time
but my lol exe is here
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\lol\League of Legends\lol.launcher.exe

If you have trouble finding the lol.launcher.exe even tho you can find its destination trough right clicking a shortcut, use windows search to find the file for you.
100% sure, if you manualy install adobe air on the other computers, that the game is portable. it does no registry entry's since thats so 1955.

Keep your Setup files (these you got from the Downloader) for purposes like this. Install it again to your new harddrive to write it to the registry and stuff. Then simply transfer all the files from your old installation into this folder, overwrite existing files. - Worked for me.

Sigh -_-
so untrue.

This is what I hate about IT everyone thinks they know what they are talking about, and than continue onto infecting other people creating so much ignorance.
