(fixed) launcher.exe / Amnesia wont work keeps saying launcher.exe not working
so i had been playing this for a couple of days now and now suddenly i try to play it; it says " launch.exe error" so anyone knows what happened cause i updated all my drivers to play bf3 , i have a ati radeon hd 7790 1gb oc ..my catalyst driver is 12.104.0.0 so i dont know whats up i play everygame fine
Edit:
the game can launch if you click launch game fast , the prob is the window that pops out with change settings before you launch game keeps getting the launch.exe error , so if anyone can help cause i can play the game but i have to click launch game very fast before error pops out

what kind of error do you get? Is it a Steam-Error, or a windows-error?

it goes to launch window before game launch where you can choose settings and a second later it goes launcher.exe not working

I am having the same problem. I think that I am just going to do a fresh install.

by fresh install do you mean deleting then downloading again ? i wonder if this could be because of opengl version 1.20

go to documents/ amnesia/ main and click on hpl.log could this version be the problem cause i updated my catalyst to the latest version

You can back them up. I'm not sure. I got it to run be clicking the run button before it crashed.

last comment: lol!

Well, reinstall is not the worst idea...
Or try to verify the gamefiles. That helped sometimes with this problem.
You could also rename your folder tp Amnesia_OLD and force the game to redownload. That helped, too!

I've tried reinstalling and verifying game cache and they didn't work.

I fixed it , i was reading around the web about this and finally found it ,for me the launcher.exe is broken and not needed because the launcher.exe is just to change settings before the game starts which is ok but the settings is also in the game so its not needed , so this is what you do if you get launcher.exe not working , go to amnesia folder on steam/ you will see launcher.exe inside amnesia and just make a copy of launcher.exe to a new folder on desktop (just in case ;) well after that is done delete launcher.exe from amnesia folder then you make a copy of Amnesia.exe and paste to amnesia folder where launcher.exe was and just rename the second copy of amnesia.exe to Launcher.exe , and well thats it easy fix / summary , just copy launcher.exe to new folder to save it , delete launcher.exe , copy amnesia.exe and paste and rename it Launcher.exe and tada no more launcher.exe it will now just start the game off without the settings window which is already in the game
