  1. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    So... I'm not 100% sure about anything anymore other than when I started this thread, Overwolf was not showing in the Notification area when I started my computer. I tried all of the above patches and they all worked. This morning I put what I think was the actual original launcher back in to see if it would work and it did so i'm not sure if it was windows or overwolf now. I'm not even sure that the file that I think is the original is the same file. I copied it from my laptop to the problem pc and rebooted and it worked perfectly. This thread can be closed at this point. Thank you.

    In task manager the startup entry even states PATCH2
  3. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    I did run it from there. I over wrote the original file (careless) with the first launcher and then made back up of first one and used the last file you gave me. All of this from original location: %programfiles(x86)%\Overwolf\OverwolfLauncher.exe
  4. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    It is working for me but it took a long time to show in the notification tray. I thought at first that it wasn't working but it finally did show.
  5. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    No, it works perfect. LOL I assume that launcher was only a debugger so idk why it works now but it does. :D
  6. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    The launcher you gave me is working perfectly. Thank you! :D
  7. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    Sure, I will reply with logs or if it's working then I will say that.
  8. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    You need to open overwolf and turn off start at logon then create a shortcut to overwolf.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Overwolf and put that shortcut in C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and then right click the shortcut and click properties then add -silent at the end of target. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Overwolf\Overwolf.exe" -silent There are other ways but this is the easiest. The problem for me was the launcher.exe but it's only a problem on my desktop. LOG FILE INCLUDED IN THIS POST - FOR @ChriSKate Sorry for late reply... Log.7z
  9. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    Changing the file to started in the shortcut from OverwolfLauncher.exe to Overwolf.exe -silent and putting that in the startup folder seems to have resolved the issue for me. Keep in mind I'm on latest version of Windows x64.
  10. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    Ok, so more specifically and correctly; it does start with Windows but I don't see it in the tray and it doesn't work correctly. It starts the launcher only and nothing else. I have even created a shortcut with -silent at the end which is what overwolf uses to start at logon silently into the notification tray and it only starts the launcher hidden and does nothing. I only found this out by looking in the task manager.
  11. Overwolf doesn't start with Windows

    I have overwolf set to start when I logon and it is not starting back up when I shutdown my computer then turn it on the next day. Sometimes it start, but usually it doesn't. It works fine if I start it manually. I have disabled windows 10 fast startup because I'm using primocache. I am not sure if either that or primocache are the reason. I have reinstalled overwolf and ran cleanup and it still most of the time will not start at logon. Thank you! :D
