Run the WAR:Apocalypse Launcher

When you have downloaded both the WAR:Apocalypse Client and the WAR:Apocalypse Launcher, you need to ensure that they are installed in the correct locations. If you have extracted your WAR:Apocalypse Client to a folder such as c:\games\war,
you will also need to ensure that your Launcher is extracted into a folder below that, for example
c:\games\war\launcher Visually this looks something like :



Go into the Launcher folder, and Double click the Launcher.exe file (or right-click and Run As Adminstrator). This should start the Launcher, which will run through a number of checks, and allow you to create an account (if you dont already have one), or login with your account.
