Hi, this is a very simple guide about fixing the League of Legends EU client problems which seem to be appearing on almost every patch. I am talking about the "The launcher has experienced an error please restart the application" problem.


To get this to work you have to have a fresh install without downloading any patches so a reinstall is recommended.

After reinstalling do the following:

Go to the LeagueofLegends/air folder and open the "lol.properties" file with notepad and replace the text with the following:

host=beta.lol.riotgames.com
xmpp_server_url=chat.na.lol.riotgames.com
enableTutorialGame=true
lobbyLandingURL=http://www.leagueoflegends.com/pvpnet_landing
ladderURL=http://www.leagueoflegends.com/ladders
storyPageURL=http://www.leagueoflegends.com/story

Make a backup of it first though, you are gonna need it.

Now, simply start the launcher, patch and that's it, you now have a perfectly working client now. Only thing left to do is change the "lol.properties" file back to what it was and continue playing on EU servers.

Basically what you did here is switched from the EU to the US server, downloaded the patch and switched back to the EU server.

EU lol.properties:

host=prod.eu.lol.riotgames.com
xmpp_server_url=chat.eu.lol.riotgames.com

This did not fix it for me, still getting that error message
"The launcher has experienced an error" at 87%
I am going to try it once more by removing all install files and cleaning up the system registry just in case, but a simple reinstall and this method did nothing for me.

Edit: cleaning up the registry, rebooting, reinstalling and applying this fix before starting the launcher.... still nothing

Oh wow, that sucks. Well you can try one more thing if you want, download the US client and patch it, then just change the properties to the EU client.
