I’m having trouble launching the game, any tips?

1) Check to make sure your antivirus hasn’t eaten aops.exe, selectplayserver.exe, or swgclient_r.exe

2) Make sure the launcher is being run as admin. If you installed into the program files folder, all .exe files in the install folder must be set to run as admin
