BDO laucnher does nothing

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)


The game was running last night, was afk fishing and came back and found I was disconnected from the server. Tried starting the game again and the launcher does nothing. Tried starting it from the install folder as admin nothing. It comes up and disappears. Went to the download from the account page and it does a clean up, then tries to do an install, Starts the launcher and it pops up saying launching and then nothing. I set my firewall to exclude BDO.

Any ideas would be great. I tested it on another machine and it seems to work fine.

I tested on another machine and it doesn't launch either. One on win 7 and one on Win 10. I see the CEF browser process and BDO start and then they both end. I'm in Canada on Shaw. Is this an ISP issue? nothing has changed on these machines. No window updates. I installed mcafee to disable defender no change. Tried adding port forwarding for 8888 and 8889 and set different browsers as default no go.

I tried to reinstall fresh to a different directory won't open launcher.

As it stands I'm dead in the water.

For me when I have msi afterburner program running before I get in game, BDO shuts itself off. when I open the program after I am in the game it is fine. Try turning off all other programs if you haven't yet?

I opened port 8888 and 8889 on my router still no go. I've tried on my laptop and computer does the same. If I tether my laptop to my phone via Rogers it launches or if I use a telus connection. For some reason my home ISP Shaw Cable in Canada it won't launch. Is there a fix for this? did your ports change?

I checked the service.ini and I can't ping or traceroute to these


I reset my router and talked  to Shaw and they said they don't block any ports. Any suggestions would be great, It's been three days now.
