Launchbox suddenly will not open - Error message attached


Recommended Posts

I had the every so often error of my files have been corrupt please use an old Zip from the Backup folder. Unpacked the last one into the Data folder which usually works. Now i get this message attached.

This Temp folder that it refers too wont even allow me to access, OR delete it even after a reboot.

Cheers

Well that error clearly tells you what is wrong, have you tried deleting that file and trying to launch? also 11.5 is out now, could try installing that also.

That \Metadata\Temp folder typically gets recreated each launch and LB with throw images files in there as you select games. It gets deleted on close of LB. So like @neil9000 I would try to install 11.5 over top. Is it just the temp folder that will not allow you to delete (can you open it and delete the contents)? Does it give you a warning when trying to delete it?

Yes it does Neil however as stated i cannot even access the Temp folder in order to delete the file. It says it is corrupted and wont let me in.

Im sure i did a reboot but still wasnt allowed entry.

When you say install 11.5 over the top i cannot even open Launchbox to go into the updater. Ill try goto the site and dload the package and try to over write it. Best not delete all my settings or i will be well fucked off

If a folder in Windows is telling you that it's corrupted, then you unfortunately have a file system issue. You'll need to run chkdsk and repair the drive.
