No I don't use the LaunchBox game directory at all on most of my installs. Have you tried downloading LaunchBox again don't erase your LaunchBox.xml but download the program again and replace everything except the XML.

Are you doing that from inside of LaunchBox? I know if the smartscreen pops up from there you can't run the program unless you go outside of LaunchBox and agree to run it from there first. Where do you have LaunchBox installed?

can you take a screen shot of your error message and post it also when the errors come up does it offer you the option to keep the information anyway? And how about the answers to the last few questions I asked you.

Thanks for the screenshot @ptoleary. I'm guessing something on your machine is blocking the download for some reason. If you scroll over to the right in the errors list, what to do the end of the errors say?

I didn't even think about that! This is why I asked Jason to come and read this thread. Could be Anti Virus, Firewall or a permissions problem.

Yeah, we should be able to confirm one way or another if we see the end of the error messages if you scroll right in the dialog.
