    I did state "if I recall correctly." So maybe I didn't recall quite so correctly

    lol yes you did. my mistake. But ya so that app icon is doing a lil more then just launching the game since the yeti_release.exe doesn't do a thing Ok since that is ok i guess then way the need for the .netframework ? If ya wouldn't mind picking that one out. First game i ever played set up like this so very curious.

    The .application doesn't launch yeti_release... It launches launcher.exe from a temp folder, this is weird and I don't know why it does it but it does.

    launcher.exe then starts yeti_release.

    The actual launcher is located here for me:
    Code:
    C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\6809BWGY.DYO\QBVOHH3T.424\laun...app_59711684aa47878d_0001.0018_af8b88644e7769a1
    It's probably somewhere similar for you. Why is it there instead of in the installation directory? I have no idea.

    WOW!!! Good find lol. Curious what even made you look there. There is alot stuff in there including the uninstall and many other things. That is a weird place for that to hang out. I would have never even guessed to look there.

    Still wondering why the .net framework usage though.

    I didn't go looking for it manually lol.

    Start the launcher using the ClickOnce Application Reference shortcut on your desktop > Open Task Manager > In the Applications tab, Right-Click "Ghost Recon Online Launcher" > Select "Go To Process" > Right-Click the Process > Select "Open File Location".

    There's no way I would of found it manually unless I just globally searched for "launcher.exe".

    Heck when you're looking in that directory you can even see that the launcher.exe just pulls its UI from here:
    http://launcher.gro-ncsa.ubi.com/Lau...n_english.html

    Just out of curiosity I tried changing the URL in the config from that to my website:


    LOL

    Staff/devs, I'm only posting this cause it's fairly basic stuff. I've done some development work myself, so if anything I post is to "sensitive" for public light you're free to delete it.
