The other day, I downloaded the patch for Maplestory and was excited to sign in. Little did I expect that when I would click any shortcut or try to open GameLauncher.exe from the Maplestory folder, than nothing would happen.
I actually had the same thing happen before and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t find the solution so I stopped playing and uninstalled it for a while. I randomly re-installed it to find that it worked a couple months later.
The problem, it seems, is that Maplestory is now Windows 7 compliant. This is actually a good thing but your game won’t launch if you’ve been running it in Compatibility Mode, which you needed to before. If the game doesn’t launch after a patch, try this:
- Open the Maplestory folder on your computer. For me, it’s located here: C:\Nexon\MapleStory
- Right-click GameLauncher and select Properties.
- Click the Compatibility tab and uncheck “Run this in compatibility mode for.” Make sure “Run as Administrator” is checked.
- Click “Ok”.
- Repeat the process for Maplestory.exe if you have been running that in Compatibility Mode.
- Relaunch your game.
- Give me all your mesos.
