I downloaded the client 1.4.2 from the site (dfc_windows-x64_1_4_2) and when I tried to run it it didn't work.
If you have the language set to dutch this is a known issue. You can either use any language other than dutch or use the next beta release found here https://github.com/FAForever/downlords-faf-client/releases/tag/v1.4.3-RC2
@LordMaw I had issues with Norton blocking 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 installations from working properly, suggest checking (and maybe temporarily deactivating just for the install) your malware protection.
@Zokora no error, I downloaded the client, double click on it and nothing happens.
get the pre-release client v1.4.3-RC2 as Sheikah posted (you only need to download and run the .exe)
@Amygdala Just now I downloaded the dfc_windows-x64_1_4_3-RC2 from github and I have the same problem, I double click on the client and it doesn't work.
Might be a windows/antivirus safety issue. Be sure that neither are blocking it.
I disable the antivirus but my client still won't run.
Did you disable only that "file shield" setting or the whole antivirus program?
I download the .exe, but the zip WORKS!
Now I will continue the process.
THX for the link!
