Game Uninstalled itself.

This has happened twice now. Sometimes last month, I didn't record the dated, and yesterday sometime before midnight central time. Game is just gone, game folder has a few items in it but when I double click on the exe I get a prompt telling me the app can't run on PC and I need to contact the creator for a PC version. Downloading the whole thing again currently.

    Are you installing it in the temp folder?

    It apparently installed to the temp folder. I am never asked where I want to install the game. How do I remedy this?

    Nope. Can't say I've had Fallout 76 randomly uninstall itself.

    If you have GW2 installed to your %temp% folder, simply move it elsewhere. Specifically, you want to move Gw2-64.exe and Gw2.dat to somewhere like C:\Games\Guild Wars 2\

    If you don't have a Gw2-64.exe, look for a ~34 MB Gw2-64.tmp or Gw2-64.### in the same folder as Gw2.dat and rename it back to Gw2-64.exe. If no such file exists, you can download Gw2Setup-64.exe and simply rename it to Gw2-64.exe.

    Good deal, thank you.

    Yea it auto installs were you have it so just moving it to what ever folder you want it to be in is enough.

    move Gw2-64.exe and Gw2.dat to the folder you want game in and run gw2-64.exe again.
