Anybody know what could be going on? My Windower is taking forever to load up. It hangs on both the opening splash and the solid green loading screen. Once it allows me to pick my profile, it launches PoL instantly.

AFAIK nothing has changed on my PC unless Windows 10 did an update I wasn't aware of.

It takes long for updating windower?

You can try momentarily turn off internet to force its main screen, then turn on.

Sometime mine gets stuck too. Just close it and re-open it. Has worked every time for me so far.

I had to do it this morning. I restarted windows, and it corrected. Happens occasionally after I update windows or something.

this happens everytime i boot up my computer. open up windower, click on my profile, windower gets stuck trying to launch the game.
i ,then, have to close windower, open it back up and it will launch the game just fine. it started doing this only a few months ago.
i've try uninstalling windower and reinstall but it still does it.

Typically when I have this issue, I have a Windows Update pending.. reboot 1 (or 2) times after updates.

I'm no computing wizard, but I've noticed that it may be related to rundll32.exe, which apparently is a necessary component to run Windower. When you first boot up your computer it may not be active depending on your setup. Launching Windower activates it, but it gets stuck on the first launch.
