    Took about 7- 8 reboots before I finally got the Nexon Launcher installed. Why it didn't bother to install in 1 try? Who the hell knows. It's not an admin permission issue, I tried several things before I rebooted.

    Now I'm stuck with Akradian's problem. It keeps giving me the error code 20010, a network error occurred.

    The actual hell, why do you make playing your game an obstacle course? Can I just login like a normal person? Why am I forced to jump thru all these hoops?

    Again, it's a very old OS. The newer the game you're installing, the more hoops you're going to have to jump through (if the game works at all).

    According to Google, the Network error 20010 is not specific to Maple, since a few people on Combat Arms, Mabinogi, and Riders of Icarus seem to be having the same issue.
    This video says it's as simple as installing Windows updates (again, there are no more for XP) and upgrading Internet Explorer, although I don't know why IE would happen to have an effect on the launcher.
    If the Riders forum is to be believed, this issue also affects launch via Steam (albeit with a different error code). However, their issue was fixed with an unscheduled maintenance.
    However I can't find any alternative fixes and the only thread where this occurs for Maple is about 8 months old.

    The game itself is not the problem, my OS has no issues with the ms client itself. I was playing just fine BEFORE they disabled the gamelauncher.

    It's ONLY this stupid new launcher that's the problem. This new launcher is so buggy, it's as if they never tested it out properly before releasing it. That's why people are so pissed off. No, it's not just me. Just from browsing the general section of this forum, I can see people getting screwed left and right by this new launcher.

    Hi @Akradian,
    Would you please private message me your dxdiag information?
    Although we officially don't support XP, we would like to further investigate to see if a resolution can be found.

    Thank you!

    Sent, and thank you.

    I know there is no official support for Windows XP, but the MapleStory client itself runs perfectly well on it - or did up until the March 23rd mini-patch that removed direct launch. All I'm asking is that the Nexon Launcher not block me from running it.

    Yes I still have the issue. I've tried everything to fix it with no success. I sent a ticket to your CS, and all I got as a response is "we don't support XP, upgrade your comp." Completely unacceptable since the game itself runs just fine. It's only the launcher with the issue (game launcher worked perfectly).

    Please discuss with your team to unblock Game Launcher. If I couldn't even launch the game on XP, I wouldn't be complaining right now. It's only the launcher that's giving me problems, not the game.
