Hey guys

to put it simple, my hard drive on my laptop died of "old age" and i had to replace it with a SSD one. I made all the windows/microsoft updates and then i went to:
- http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/redownload

I downloaded the LOL installer and when i clicked to open it.. nothing happened. in frustration i repeated this action several times -.-
but then i went to my other pc, and made a copy paste of the riot games folder to an external hard drive and tried to run it directly from it, on my laptop.

In result this happened: "pvp.net patcher kernel has stopped working" (at least it's what it says on a portuguese computer such as mine) and the same happened when i transferred the riot folder to "my computer" on the laptop


So here I am asking for your help, thx for your time :/

Same exact problem here, i think its clearly not our problem, the .exe is messed up. Riot, solve this quickly.

Try reading this:

1. http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/redownload

2. Please make sure you select the regional client you wish to use (Europe-West , Europe-Nordic & East or North America)

3. If the first link or Pando is giving you trouble, Use these links:
North America: http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/Installer...endsBaseNA.exe
Europe West: http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/Installer...ndsBaseEUW.exe
Europe Nordic and East: http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/Installer...dsBaseEUNE.exe

Also, take a look at this:

Install the latest version of Adobe Air
Install the latest version of Adobe Flash
Install the latest version of .NET Framework
Install the latest version of DirectX
Update your copy of Windows.
Update your graphics card drivers. [Nvidia] - [ATI]
Update other drivers, including your BIOS (often fixes hardware related issues)
Uninstall Pando Media Booster
Use the repair function built into the patcher
Uninstall and reinstall to a new directory

Same problem here, the installer does nothing. I have a SSD on a fresh new computer too, and I completed almost every step described above....
I tried launching it from the command line to get the error, but eh, we're not on Linux here, it printed nothing.

I have exactly the same problem... New PC bought last week, with windows 8. Downloaded and tried to instal and nothing happened; redownloaded and didnt worked; used all possbile compatiblity modes and didnt worked... btw, have all drivers, bios and controlers up to date, so i guess its some problem with the installer and windows 8. Solve it quickly Riot, please...

I contacted the support, and among other IT support bull****, they suggested that I create a new admin account on my computer and run the installer from there. It did the job for me.

i had this problem when my launcher just stopped working. there is a mock file in the installer that prevents it from working,if you can install LoL and patch it but can't open game after clicking Play you just have to find a folder called server.mock or something like that and delete it,if you can't patch it or anything then idk
