Example:how do I set a tank as primary

What to do when the World of Tanks game launcher doesn’t work properly?

Make sure you’re using the WOTLauncher.exe to start the game. If you have any doubts, please follow the steps below.

  1. Open the installation folder of WoT. Most likely: C:\Games\World_of_Tanks
  2. Right click on the icon called “WOTLauncher.exe” and select the option “Create shortcut”. A new icon called “WOTLauncher – Shortcut” will appear.
  3. Move it to your desktop.

 

Ensure that your Windows User Session has the appropriate administrative rights.

Windows 7 and Vista

Click on the image on top of the “Start” menu. This will open your account dashboard. Here, if you see “Standard User” under your account name, ask your Administrator for permission.

  • Right click on the WOTLauncher.exe and select the option “Run as administrator”

 

Windows XP

Right click the clock on the desktop tray and select “Adjust date/time”. If a warning message appears saying “You don’t have permission to perform this task”, ask your Administrator for the appropriate permissions.

  • Click on the WOTLauncher.exe

 

Check the following on your computer

If your World of Tanks Launcher doesn’t work, E.G freezes or doesn’t respond etc.

Please note that Launcher runs with Internet Explorer settings, therefore make sure that IE is installed. Verify that it’s updated and running in "online mode" ("file" menu).

Note that IE has to be in "online mode" even if you use another internet browser as your main browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc.).

It is also recommended to update Adobe Flash and Java.
