[Possible Solution] Failed to Read the Launch Version, Launcher Config File Error, Socket Connect Error


2 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I have had the previous problem of unable to launch the Black Desert launcher at all getting the launcher exe moved to background processing and not as an app, with after a while popping out an Error "Failed to read the launch version".

Searching through the logs I dig up:

[03/05/2016::01:55:49]    [MSG] DaumGame Global Launcher is started. (352378B56D994A02B3CE9FC20FB1C61D)

[03/05/2016::01:59:01]    [MSG] DaumGame Global Launcher is ended.

From searching throughout the forums and on the net, there was no solution except to reinstall windows.

Deciding to explore this I checked my Windows 10 version and realised it was outdated, possibly a problem.

With some issues with updating windows due to old version bugs I used this website to update my windows:
http://www.windowscentral.com/use-media-creation-tool-update-windows10

and 
now it works!

Hopefully this will help some of you!

TL:DR: Try updating your Windows to the latest offivical version

PS: image as proof its working!!

Ran into this issue myself as well. Although re-installing Windows 10 would have probably worked, that is overkill considering pretty much everything else on my computer is working. This is what my log(s) looked like:

[03/09/2016::02:01:38]    [MSG] DaumGame Global Launcher is started. (EC3D4ECACC7E4791B38478426DA4973A)

[03/09/2016::02:01:38]    [MSG] Launcher config file error.

[03/09/2016::02:01:38]    [MSG] bReturn is 1

[03/09/2016::02:01:38]    [MSG] s key : 3798

[03/09/2016::02:01:39]    [MSG] Action manager ACT_WAIT flow start.

[03/09/2016::02:01:40]    [MSG] Get required data is start.

[03/09/2016::02:01:40]    [MSG] Get required data is failed.

[03/09/2016::02:01:40]    [MSG] DaumGame Global Launcher is ended.

 

Some of the things I tried included restarting, installing to different drives, disabling proxy settings, disabling windows firewall, disabling windows defender, disabling unnecessary programs and services, updating graphic drivers - none of it worked.

To get it to work for me, I did a mix of things (two things at the same time, and then it worked next reboot). I installed and ran BleachBit with the settings Internet Explorer -> Temporary Files, System -> Logs, Memory Dump, Prefetch, Temporary Files. After this I ran AdwCleaner to see if something was there, but it only found remnants of a chrome extension. I do not think this part helped. On the next reboot the launcher opened and is now downloading game files.

I think the step that made it work was clearing the Temporary Files. It is worth a shot, especially before re-installing the game.
