Manual Upgrade

IF YOU RECEIVED A MESSAGE THAT SAYS THE AUTO INSTALLER CANNOT UPDATE UGX LAUNCHER:

The latest update to the UGX Launcher broke the auto-updater. You need to perform the update manually by following these steps:

  • Download and start the UGX Installer as described below.
  • Choose Uninstall UGX Launcher and hit next. ( Be sure that the UGX Launcher is not running while you do this!)
  • (you should remove your settings as well!)
  • Now execute the UGX Installer again and install it as usual. (follow guide below)

We apologize for this inconvenience.

 

Simply download the latest version of the UGX Installer and run it.

Just follow the Install Wizard and if everything succeeds the UGX Launcher is properly installed and can be started.

Parent directory error

If you choose custom or express you should get an error because the parent directory doesn't exist. ( default path )

Workaround: choose custom and select a folder which actually exist ( create an empty one )

You can also create the default "parent folder" "<windows drive>:\Program Files (x86)\UGX Mods\" and then try express again.

This will be fixed in the next version!

 

If you choose "Custom installation" you get some more options before the installation process starts.
