Hey,

here is a quick how-to, check the steps, maybe you missed a step:

How to Download:
- Recommend Torrent Tixati: http://www.tixati.com/
- First step, disable your Antivirus, Firewall, or Malware detection programs. These can potentially interfere with an install.
- Download torrent file: https://www.returnofreckoning.com/files ... 20.torrent
- Run the Torrent file, with the Torrent app, and wait until it's finishes.

How to Install:
- Stop your Torrent from seeding (close it, maybe check your task manager)
- Move the RoR Folder to c:\ (or atleast it's NOT in program files or a folder which it wont have write access. For instance move it to c:\Games\Return of Reckoning)
- Remove the write-protection from all the files in the WAR folder. (right click the game folder -> properties -> disable the read-only box)
- Check if your whole RoR Folder is whitelisted in your Antivir program
- You may also try running the launcher with Administrator privileges. (Right click the RoR updater > properties > run administrator)
- Run RoRLauncher.exe
- Let it update (wait a few seconds)
- Exit launcher and rerun it again
- Repeat the last 2-steps until there is no update
- Launch the game
- [If you don't have DirectX 9.0c, installed it is required, and now this is also included in the torrent. In the ReturnOfReckoning-March2020 folder find the dx90c folder, open that and run DXSETUP.exe]

Im getting this same issue - I have followed to a T the instructions from this post without a change in behavior.
- In its own folder in the root of the drive
- Removed all write protections
- Whitelisted the whole folder in my AV
- Set as admin
- Ran the ROR launcher and it manifests, verifies, and either quits shortly into verifying or some time after the download starts

Other attempted fixes:
- Restarted comp
- Deleted launcher file
- Win 7 compatibility mode
- Checked the net 3.5
- Temp disabled AV

Running low on ideas
