Firewall Software Causes Problems for Launcher

While our launcher tool uses normal standard internet requests, some firewall solutions will still block all unknown software.

How Firewalls Interact with Internet Enabled Software

Most firewall software programs default to silently block all internet enabled applications unless explicitly specified otherwise in configuration. This includes most Windows programs such as our launcher program.
