Issues unresolved[edit]

Launcher continuous to run in the background[edit]

Information The game's launcher may continue to run in the background after the launcher window has been closed.
Information The launcher can be closed from the Windows system tray (usually bottom right).[4]
Disadvantage This must be repeated every time the player quits the game.

Issues fixed[edit]

Installer crash[edit]

Fix Launcher manual download[5]

  1. Make sure you have .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed
  2. Manually download the launcher from here
  3. Run it

Uninstallation problems[edit]

Even when using the "uninstall" option from the launcher, an error message saying the pdc-live files are in use is sometimes present. Deleting the files won't work, sending them to the recycling bin won't work either. The following is not a recommended solution: By renaming the folders "Pdc-live" and "patches" in the GRO folder to something else, uninstallation from the launcher somehow works. The folders that were renamed are removed and GRO no longer appears in "Programs and Features".
