Report article RSS Feed How to use the PokeGen Launcher

Welcome friends! Here I'll be showing you how to install PokeGen using the launcher, and make sure that you're informed of any subsequent updates.

Posted by Xatoku on May 31st, 2013 Page 1 of 3    
Basic Installers.

If you're reading this, you've most likely downloaded the launcher .rar file. I'm going to assume you know how to extract .rar files, but if not, you can download WinRar. WinRar is a free program which simply opens these files and allows you to extract them to a directory of your choosing.

Now, once you've got the launcher extracted, you'll notice that all files apart from the main .exe are hidden to keep things simple for new users. Make sure, however, that all of these files remain in the same directory, otherwise the launcher won't run properly.

When you open the main PokeGen.exe, you'll be presented with this window, assuming you haven't installed it yet:

http://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/130/129069/auto/23505841.png

In this window, all you have to do is decide where the launcher will install the main PokeGen folder. You'll be able to change this directory later however, so don't worry about being stuck in one place.

I have extracted the files three times now (once to desktop and twice to "downloads"), and when I open the launcher, nothing happens. Furthermore, Windows won't let me delete the launcher because it apparently recognizes the program as running even though it isn't. Any help?

I'm having troubles getting the launcher to run.
I've extracted the files to a folder, all are hidden but "PokeGen" application, but when I start it (both as administer and not), and choose where to download it, nothing appears. I have AVG but an unsure if that's a problem and don't know how to unblock it if it is. Can anyone help?
Thank you.

I have extracted the rar to a folder and ran the launcher. It won't install - the loading bar saying "Calculating Differences." I've tried installing it to a number of different directories, running it as administrator, and running it in compatibility mode with no luck. I have my McAfee turned off and still nothing. Any help will be appreciated!

For everybody getting the "Calculating Differences" error, it is because there is too much traffic. Shut down the launcher and try later.

TO THE PROGRAMMERS OF THIS GAME:

The game crashes because of an unhandled exception: System.Net.WebException at PokeGen.MainWindow.GetVersionFileInfo() at WpfApplication1.App.Main(). Try handling the exception by inserting the code giving the exception inside a try-catch statement.

So when I go to install the game it just gets stuck on Calculating Differences... left it like that for an hour and nothing happens. Then I delete and re-download the folder and same result over and over again 5th attempt I give up guess i'm not allowed to enjoy this game at this time.

I have tried several different settings but it keeps popping up saying PokeGen.exe has stopped working. It happens instantly as I open the game through both the launcher and the normal thing.
