A popular method of repairing game files is simply reinstalling. To do this, you must first disable antivirus software as well as Windows Defender. Clear all game and launcher files, and then download the launcher from the Download section (click here) for the current version of GameLauncher. Unpack to folder, then run the launcher as an administrator and follow the installer, then wait before the game files are not downloaded.
