What should I do if my game does not start? How do I check the integrity of the launcher?

The following is a guide that will allow you to force your launcher to perform an integrity check for missing or corrupted files. Please perform these steps if your game will not start or if you want to check the integrity of your launcher.

Please note that if you have installed the game to an alternate directory, the target field should be changed appropriately.

Step 1:

  • Right click on your launcher desktop shortcut and choose "Properties"

Step 2:

  • In the target field, you need to locate the following or something similar "C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\WOTLauncher.exe"

Step 3:

  • Add the integrity switch to the end of this line so that it reads as "C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\WOTLauncher.exe -integrity"

Step 4:

  • Click "Apply", then "OK" to close the window

Step 5:

  • Run the launcher with administrative privileges
    • To do this, right click on the shortcut again and choose "Run as Administrator"
