As much as I hate asking for help, I can't figure this out. This morning I could play without issues, tonight after work, the launcher is crashing when I hit Log In.

I was logged in and playing on the same system this morning. No windows updates or system changes or anything happened.

During the day I logged in for a while on my work laptop.

Then when I got home it just crashes after I press the Log In button.

I've tried restarting the computer, re-installing, not sure where to troubleshoot next. Would appreciate some help on ideas please.

Also thought to add; the crash only happens on a successful log in attempt. If I miss-type my password or OTP, it doesn't crash. also tried turning off fire wall, but no luck so far.

Figured it out thanks to this thread:

Would be nice if their error messages were more descriptive, but apparantly the issue was my username was being attempted to log in with the wrong password info. Thank goodness I have the token!
