    I just re-installed DCUO and now I am getting this problem: Launchpad was unable to connect. (1-0)
    Checking the startup logs I get this:

    Disregard everything. Messing up with some app on DCUO folder I just clicked twice on "RegionalSettings" and it worked what It's kinda funny and it's also a solution.
  3. TSR-AlexS Customer Service

    Cool, glad you were able to get in successfully. Please let us know if you have any more issues.
  4. Matthew Salter New Member

    Please bump this!!!

    In simpleton instructions:

    Start > Computer > C: > Program Files > Steam > Steamapps > Common > dc universe online > Double click on "RegionalSettings.bat"

    A window should appear for a brief second and disappear, after that try launching, I tried uncountable things such as
    reinstalling the game 2 different ways
    installing dx9 or .net framework 4
    restarting the program infinite times
    restarting my computer

    and out of all that this worked.
  5. Barabous New Member

    This worked! After a painfully long amount of searching for help this was the problem.... Thank you very much!
  6. TSR-AlexS Customer Service

    Glad Matt's info helped! Please let us know if you have any more issues :)

    Matthew, thank you for your assistance, my friend.
  7. Unknownmarks New Member

    I've tried doing what Matt said, but i keep getting the same error. I need help.
  8. TSR-AlexS Customer Service

    Unknown, at this point I'd recommend submitting in a support ticket so we can further assist you. Please be sure to include your Dxdiag/Msinfo.

    If you already installed the game (without steam) look in the folder you installed it to. If you don't know where that is, right click on your DCUO icon and click "open file location" and that should open a window showing you all your files.
  11. Igotsk1lllad New Member

    it has not even let me install the game yet only the program to run it does anybody know what i can do?
  12. OnceUponATime Well-Known Member

    That depends. Can you describe what happens when you run the launcher?
  13. Igotsk1lllad New Member

    it will not even let me install the game i click on the game it says do u want this to make changes to your computer i click yes then it says launchpad was unable to connect.
  14. OnceUponATime Well-Known Member

    The "Do you want this to make changes to your computer" is not a launchpad box - what software is that coming from?
    Have you set exceptions in your antivirus?
    Have you set exceptions in your firewall?
    Are you running the game as admin?
  15. TSR-AlexS Customer Service

    Many different things can cause this to happen. I would suggest submitting in a support ticket with both your Dxdiag/Msinfo so we can check for potential causes.
  16. Nichromo New Member

    Hey I do not see RegionalSettinga.bat when I went in the folder (I don't have Steam and I did what you said about the right clicking and clicking open in file location)
  17. Djozar New Member

    Really wish SOE would just get rid of its association with Steam...either that or MAKE THEM FIX what they broke with the launcher. I can play, thankfully, by using the launcher from SOE, however, I would like to continue my achievements on Steam and not have 2 copies on my computer. I am determined to get this fixed...sad SOE doesn't demand more from a company given the power to distribute their games...time to grow a set SOE and demand they fix your product! WE shouldn't be having to fix ANYTHING...This is an SOE/Steam issue and THEY should be the ones to come up with a fix that doesn't require a bunch of steps that some people just don't have the pc experience to even mess with. FIX IT NOW! I don't pay for a broken service and neither will my friends. Time to step up Sony and do what you gotta do to fix it NOW! No exceptions or excuses. Just get it done. Your responsibility..NOT ours!!!
